How Do Churches Use Social Media? [Infographic]


I was interviewed by the Associated Baptist Press News website last week about social media and the church. One of my biggest recommendations was for churches to designate a point person to oversee and handle social media for their church–whether that person has other responsibilities or is a volunteer. So when I came across this infographic by Buzzplant, I was surprised to see that their survey shows that 74% of churches do not have a paid person on staff to manage social media; yet social media is sited as one of the most effective methods of outreach. Seems like there is a disconnect.

Take a peek at the stats below and leave your comments. I’d love to know how your church handles social media. Please share!

How One Church Tripled Its Online Community

For all churches, the pursuit of efficiency is high on the list of things to achieve. When churches and Sunday services run efficiently, the church serving experience is far less stressed and everyone is released to be more Kingdom-focused than system-focused. This is why churches must use integrated ministry platforms to aid their tasks.
