  • I love to get aquainted with your progarm, and share with you bout my ministry. Especialy in growing.

    1.Participation is important, it's for empowering and encouraging those in any ministry.2. Your ministry can win a soul to Jesus.Thats helping a church or a ministry to grow. So if you can advertise my ministry to your site or church, because i love to have others in the music ministry come and share with us or participate in this outreach program in March 26 2011. To Empower and To be Empowered is GROWING.

  • Thanks for sharing this, Paul. I'll be there! Thanks for opening it up! Here's a challenge for you outside of the tools: How do you mobilize the church tribe? Perhaps a 3-point plan? How do you get the ones on social media untied and herd the cats who aren't? The tools are great if we can unite the people. I hope this isn't way outside of the tools. It's a challenge.

    • Toni, glad to hear you'll be a part of the webinar. That's a great question! A lot of pastors/churches start using social media and find they are a "lone voice crying out in the wilderness," a string of tweets/posts with no responses from anyone. The tools themselves can't create a community or mobilize it, it's all all about how the tools are used.

    • Yes, barring any technology mishaps we'll have a recording of the webinar posted online sometime later.

      • Thanks Paul.. how would I keep up with that info.. sorry where would I find the link when it is posted. I apoligize but I would like to view this as I feel it is important information.

        • I do a blog post about it here. You could also register for the webinar even though you won't be there. An email will go out to everyone registered afterwards with links to notes, slides, video, etc.

  • Looking forward to this. One question I have would be: "How do you connect with people in your community on facebook and twitter without coming across as a spammer or stalker?"

  • I'm interested in some tips about how to decentralize the use of social media among the staff. No one person can represent "the church" and people won't engage with the guy behind the curtain – they want to talk with a real person. How can I encourage our ministry leaders and pastors to begin?

    • Awesome question, Debi! This is going to be one jam-packed webinar. We may have to do more than to cover all these great questions.

  • Can we come even if we're not a pastor or church planter? Appears that you're supposed to be one or other but I'm still interested in coming if I'm allowed to.

    • Certainly, Becky! Everyone is welcome. It will be geared towards church planters, but anyone interested or involved with social media for churches will benefit from this webinar.

    • Thanks John! Would appreciate your help in spreading the word if you can spare a tweet. 🙂

  • Loved the webinar, hate the junkmail I'm now getting at the email address I used to sign up for it. Bummer.

  • Hi! I missed it! Will there be another one anytime in the future? We did something similar in Spanish last year in Tampa and I would love to hear your ideas…Joe
