Description:
Social media (Facebook, Twitter etc...) can feel a little overwhelming to a busy pastor or ministry leader. Perhaps you've thought, "I know I should be using if for my church, but I don't know where to start!" This webinar will help you narrow the field to the top 3 social media networks that will help you grow your ministry.

What You'll learn:

  • An overview of Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to understand how to utilize them, and the difference they'll make in your ministry.
  • How to practically use these three platforms in a church setting.
  • Engaging examples of how churches have used social media to change lives. 

If you can't make the webinar time be sure to register anyway, we'll send you a link of the recording to watch afterward.

I became a subscriber to Ministry Library a couple of months ago and love their book summaries allowing to learn more in less time.  I was overwhelmed when they reached out to me asking if they could summarize my book and I just received an email that it is live.
