10 Ministry Leaders to Follow on Twitter

People enjoy connecting with other people rather than organizations. When it comes to social media, you will likely be most effective connecting with people through your personal platforms rather than your church/ministry/organization platforms.  
Here are 10 ministry leaders on Twitter that are worth following and learning from as they do an incredible job engaging their followers on Twitter:

  1. Rick Warren
  2. Matthew Barnett
  3. TD Jakes
  4. Beth Moore
  5. Jon Acuff
  6. Ron Edmondson
  7. Ed Stetzer
  8. Max Lucado
  9. Tony Morgan
  10. John Piper

I’m also proud to say that my pastor is crushing it on Twitter.  If you’re not yet following Ed Newton make sure to follow him today!  

Here are a few of my clients that are also engaging in a really great way on Twitter:

I'm excited to share that I will be joining the conversation with Ed Stetzer on Moody Radio this Saturday discussing Online Church.  Here is what we will be discussing:

Is Cyber Church Really Church?

Does worshipping on the web really count as church? This Saturday on Up For Debate, Julie Roys will discuss cyberchurches, a form of church some predict will one day account for one-third of all church attendance! Joining Julie will be an online pastor; and researcher, blogger and author Ed Stetzer. That's this Saturday at 8 a.m. on Up For Debate!

I would love for you to join the conversation as well by calling into the program during this hour.  For more information about this please visit http://www.moodyradio.org/upfordebate/.  I hope to talk with you on Saturday!

Where I'm Learning

I believe strongly that leaders are learners.  We all learn in many ways both from experience as well as from other leaders and innovators via many different platforms.  I receive the question often of where I am learning and ask it even more.  I will likely make this a monthly post and look forward to hearing your responses as well.  Here are some of the key places I go to learn currently: Books
