Guest Post: Should Churches Make Social Media A Priority?

This is a guest post from my friend Jeremy Smith.  I have followed Jeremy for many years online as he is a leading voice in church technology and innovation.  Enjoy these insights from Jeremy as he shares some thoughts on Social Media and the Church:

This year has been an absolutely fun experience as I have taken on a year long adventure to begin to construct a foundation to identify what it means for churches to create a digital ministry. The idea of the research project is that churches are investing in social media and websites, but very little data has been gathered on the topic. I therefore set out to gather data on the 100 largest churches in America in 2014 to see what was already being done.
