I have been working on Church Social Media for some time now and learning a lot about what works and what doesn’t. With businesses, social media is about getting new business and sales and engaging with clients. Churches are quite similar except for their aim is to reach out to the lost and engage with current members.
A lot of churches mainly post about their pastor or their programs. Church social media has to be more than that. It has to make an impact and be a blessing. I think Church content should point people towards God and also be interesting and shareable. I believe content should enable people to engage and feel like part of something bigger than themselves.
I have put together a list of posts that can be used on church social media pages and hope you find them useful.
