I'm excited to announce that I will be hosting the Social Media Summit in coordination with my friends at Faith Social.  In one 90 minute session, we have brought together seasoned experts in social media and digital ministry to share strategy and best practices for church leaders to better engage their members and grow their ministry through social media. This event is the perfect opportunity for church leaders to deepen their understanding of Social Media in Ministry without even leaving their desk.  This online event is FREE and will take place on Wednesday, June 4, 2014 from noon-1:30pm CST.  I hope to see you there!

FaithVillage launches Online Bookstore

I love when great things get even better!  This just happened with FaithVillage as they recently launched their Online Bookstore with over 200,000 Christian titles!  FaithVillage provides an incredible platform with incredible content and interaction and now great resources as well.

As excited as I was to see this new addition to FaithVillage, I was extremely humbled to find that they chose to make the Social Media Guide for Ministry a top pick of the month as a part of the launch.  I have encouraged most people to purchase the book on Amazon, but if you haven't yet purchased the book the lowest price that you will find it anywhere is at FaithVillage for just $5.18 (35% savings).  Click here for the link to purchase.  I would also appreciate a review if you have already purchased and read!

Regardless, I hope you will head over to FaithVillage.com as there is some great Easter content and conversations going on now!

Thank you friends at FaithVillage for your friendship and creating such a great Kingdom resource!

Thank You FaithVillage

I have shared about FaithVillage many times here and want to again reiterate how grateful I am to be connected with this incredible ministry.  Brad Russell and the team at FaithVillage have an incredible vision for using web technology to grow people in their faith by connecting them with great resources and each other!  I'm honored to be a contributor at FaithVillage and hope that if you're not already an active participant in the community at FaithVillage that you will begin today. FaithVillage has created some great resources for churches and I hope that if you are a ministry leader you will check those out and see how you can utilize these tools in the life of your church.  Take a look at this video:
