3 Big Lists of Church Social Media Policies

Doing social media for churches is easy, that’s why social media is so popular, because it’s easy. But, when a church is larger and complicated or there’s questions about how effective or strategic social media has to be, then social media becomes work that takes some thinking and planning to do.

Part of the work of social media with churches is setting some policies to guide the church’s social media usage. Lots of people find it easier to learn from examples. So here are 3 big lists of church social media policies and resources to help:

I Went To The Hospital

Today my squad leader Michelle and I had the opportunity to visit a hospital with my host (who is also a Doctor). We met up with some local western doctors and nurses and visited a new hospital in Chiang Mai, gathering information on what each facility provided so they can refer patients to them. We visited a Dental Clinic, Skin Clinic, Check-In Clinic and Physical Therapy Clinic. The group a doctors and nurses asked the head physician from each clinic different questions on what equipment

Breaking Down After Boxing

Here is a video that my wonderful teammate Allie put together about a typical day (this day was May 25) in the life of Linus the van. Also, it shows some glimpses into what my team and I have been doing this month with Pastor Pirot in the schools! We have gone to 6 different schools in the past 2 weeks to teach English, love on the children and share about Jesus! Its been some of my teammate's favorite month on the Race so far, including mine! Pastor Pirot and his family and the Thai young adult

Expect the Unexpected

Hello all! A lot of this year, I feel like I am having to re-learn foundational Biblical concepts in real life situations. I have been studying the Bible for a while now, and prideful me thought I knew a lot. But that’s just the problem - I know these truths in my head, but not so much in my heart. I believe the Lord is walking me through these experiences to engrain them into my soul and to create a firm foundation in Jesus. I wasn’t expecting this to happen when I signed up for th

Thailand

https://youtu.be/XxizLawzQAY Here's a sneak peak into my month in Thailand. This month has been one of adventure and flexibility. As you will see in this video we had many different ministries. From teaching English, prayer walking, house visits, working with local churches, youth ministry, bar ministry, painting, and surveying a forest (lol). This month has been SO incredibly full, and I will be sharing stories of some of the ways The Lord worked in BIG BIG ways this month with my te

Freerange Friday—Praying with Driftwood

By Lilly Lewin I love the ocean and large bodies of water. The waves, the rocks, the sand and the sunsets all draw me closer to Jesus. I truly experience thinplace near the water. A thinplace is where the veil between heaven and earth is thin and one can easily feel the presence of God! […]

Prayer Warriors, I Need You. Right Now.

Tonight, my teammate and I were headed back to our hostel after wifi and tea and we hopped in the back of what we call a “tuk-truck”, the cheapest and easiest form of public transportation here in Pattaya. We stood on the outside because it was already pretty full, mostly of middle aged men. It was the cute little blonde girl in the yellow poncho that caught my eye. She was sitting in the lap of a man I assumed was her father, one of the three European men travelling together with th

Can't compare to the joy that is coming

If you read my Facebook updates, you know that Sri Lanka wasn't easy. It was my least favorite country/month so far. We were treated unfairly, we had trouble with the language barriers and cultural customs, we were perpetually confused, we didn’t feel any guidance from the Lord, I had things going on back home that wrecked me, we met one Christian on our own the entire month, and at the end I was pushed by a wave off of a cliff (dramatic, I know). While I trust this season will lead to fr
