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!
