Facebook provides great opportunities for churches (and their members) to reach out to the people in their communities AND opportunities to develop better community and communication among those people already a part of the church.
Kurt, posted an excellent article to Church Marketing Online, about using Facebook to engage with your church’s members which is too good and too relevant to our conversation here on Christian Web Trends to pass up.
Some of the ideas cited include:
- Listen to what people are talking about to learn what concerns and interests people
- Conduct online discussions
- Help build relationships by encouraging members to connect with each other
- Spotlight members
For the other 6 suggested ways your church can engage with its member on Facebook, check out the full article 10 Facebook Ideas For Your Church – Inward Outreach.
