How to Use Social Media as an Extension of Your Congregation's Community

Imagine if social media weren’t another to-do or something else to have to “figure out”? When we treat social media as a digital extension of our congregations, life becomes easier and magic happens.

Join digital marketers Tim Campbell-Smith and Kaeli Sweigard for an interactive 90 minute webinar on how you can match your current ministry efforts with easy to implement social media tactics to deepen your community and grow your ministries. From memes to posting, engagement to direct messaging, we’ll explore what it means to match your in person presence to an online presence.
