Here are quick take-aways from today’s interview:
--Pastors: Don’t be afraid to leverage the technology of our day. People will find your content when they are searching for answers.
--Many churches are using social media as a megaphone for the church when they should be leveraging the technology as a telephone: a 2-way conversation.
--Social media offers the power to stay engaged with people through the week. It doesn’t have to be polished or professional, just start using it as a conversation to connect with your community.
--Church attendance is not decreasing; it’s decentralizing.
--The church is relevant in the community when they are meeting the needs of the people in the community. Having an online presence allows us to do this. Start leveraging social media to impact the community you are in!
--Don’t be afraid to use YouTube to reach a generation wandering far from God.
