About the Workshop
Reach Your Audience with Social Media
Effective communications can be a challenge for all of us, but in the always-changing world of social media, it can be a harrowing experience for those engaged in ministry.
With Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, YouNow, Vimeo, Snapchat, and many other platforms, knowing how to go about reaching your audience with your message while avoiding disaster is the challenge. We will examine multiple platform options, some of the best-practices for their use, and the possible ministry objectives that each enables.
Participants don’t need any social media skills. However, it would be helpful for participants to come to the seminar with either a laptop or a mobile internet device (iPhone, iPad, Android, etc.).
Greg Neal, pastor of FUMC Commerce, is a social media phenomenon with over 65,000 subscribers on YouNow, reaching a young audience with the transformational love of Jesus Christ. Over 60% of the audience is 13-25 years old.
