  • 3. 3Kathi Johnson @SmilingKIJKathi, lurking for a few before late dinner. #ELCA pastor in N. TX. Use FB, Twitter, Blogger,Pinterest, IG, Vine. #chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybirdEpiscopal Camp Director from MT. Excited to be here for full hr. #chsocmBeth Felice @bfelice@nealffischer big list! #chsocmAngela @mnplatypusAngela, office support for communications and membership at an ELCA Lutheran church westof Minneapolis #ChSocMNeal F. Fischer @nealffischerLet us begin with our topics. #chsocmNeal F. Fischer @nealffischerT1.) What do you see as the most effective method of outreach for the Church? (i.e. Radio, TV,Paper, Social Media, etc.) #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGould<--sliding into the room, happy to be here after the #ecsm13 mtg in NYC & a train ride homew/o WiFi! #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333T1: #chsocm for sure, if church wants to reach todays generation. Other media are waning.Amber Stamper @AmberStamperPhD@nealffischer T1) Dont mean to be nitpicky, but what are we meaning by "effective"--forstarting dialogue, drawing members, etc.? #chsocmNeal F. Fischer @nealffischer@MeredithGould woohoo - glad you made it after all! #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333@MeredithGould Was wondering where you were! :-) #chsocmCaroline Carson @Conductor222@nealffischer #chsocm Hmm, Id say TV, FB, and the old-fashioned word of mouth andactions in the community (esp those resulting in news)Carolyn Clement @singingcarolynT1, Well, Social Media is the obvious answer. But it depends who we are trying to reach. Wevehad good luck with yard signs, too. #chsocmGod the Healer @GodtheHealerDev#chsocm T1: Most effective - Facebook because most people of all generations are on there.
  • 4. 4Angela @mnplatypusT1 I think the best we can aspire to is word of mouth #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333MT @Conductor222 #chsocm Hmm, Id say TV, FB, and the old-fashioned word of mouth andactions in the community (esp those resulting in news)Beth Felice @bfeliceperson to person #chsocm, although do you mean outside that?Bryan Rothamel @BryanPXPT1: person to person contact, whether F2F, email, SM, etc. I find more personal, better results.#chsocmMarlana Portolano @LanaPortolano#chsocm I students Deaf eloquence and sacred rhetoric. Social media helps me connect withpeople with related interests.MeredithGould @MeredithGouldT1 Have to echo @Amberstamperphd Effective for what? Whats the goal? #chsocmAmber Stamper @AmberStamperPhD@mnplatypus Totally agree, Angela! Was just about to say that media is effective insofar as itapproximates f2f relationships :) #chsocmNeal F. Fischer @nealffischer@AmberStamperPhD In this case effective would mean best at achieving your goal for thecampaign. #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333RT @mnplatypus T1 I think the best we can aspire to is word of mouth //F2F? #chsocmMarlana Portolano @LanaPortolano#chsocm. Oops, study not students! :-)Cheryl K. @LuckyCharm333RT @BryanPXP T1: person to person contact, whether F2F, email, SM, etc. I find more personal,better results. #chsocmAngela @mnplatypus... Which can include online word of mouth :) #ChSocMNeal F. Fischer @nealffischerT1A.) If you said social media, what platform is most effective for you? #chsocmGod the Healer @GodtheHealerDevRT @mnplatypus: ... Which can include online word of mouth :) #ChSocM LOVE
  • 5. 5Carolyn Clement @singingcarolynT1a: Definitely @facebook. #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGouldT1 Most effective tactic? Sharing relatable stories. Most effective tool? Depends! #chsocmAngela @mnplatypus(Off topic) This hand balancing is distracting me from #ChSocMBryan Rothamel @BryanPXPT1a: anything that can allow dialog later. Now Facebook pages has messages, it works well.#chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333T1A: FB is most effective. More ppl using, easy to have long dialogs w/multiple ppl. #chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybirdT1: even for more broadcast--inviting, raising public awareness--medium still depends on whoand where you are--fb ads new in MT #chsocmLaura Catalano @LeistCatalano@singingcarolyn T1A I agree facebook is tops #chsocmGod the Healer @GodtheHealerDevRT @singingcarolyn: T1a: Definitely @facebook. #chsocm AGREE! Though I secretly wishmore people were on Twitter.MeredithGould @MeredithGouldT1A: For me personally? Twitter. For organizations? FB #chsocmAmber Stamper @AmberStamperPhDCurious: Do any of yall involved in ministry collect data on the effectiveness of the diffplatforms you use? #chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybirdRT @MeredithGould T1A: For me personally? Twitter. For organizations? FB #chsocmEvan Duncan @evanduncan@nealffischer T1A) Facebook. Population, ability to share and tag, and promotion has made itextremely effective. #chsocmBeth Felice @bfelice@theologybird should have a sidebar with you later about FB ads! #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333@MeredithGould Why the difference? #chsocm
  • 6. 6Angela @mnplatypusT1a I didnt say social media, but Facebook, because the audience is there AND it facilitates wordof mouth #ChSocMGod the Healer @GodtheHealerDevRT @MeredithGould: T1A: For me personally? Twitter. For organizations? FB #chsocm samehere.Carolyn Clement @singingcarolyn@GodtheHealerDev @facebook Or not so secretly...Im persistently inviting everyone toTwitter...#chsocmNeal F. Fischer @nealffischerT2.) On a number of occasions weve talked about "having a plan." Name one goal in your#chsocm plan.MeredithGould @MeredithGould@LuckyCharm333 Because what I do & need & how I best communicate as moiself, differs fromwhat Id do on behalf of an organization #chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybird@bfelice anytime! I only know a little, though. #chsocmDawn Trautman @UrbanNomadUSART @meredithgould:Most effective tactic? Sharing relatable stories. Most effective tool?Depends! #chsocm//Message matters more than medium.Nora Ortiz Fredrick @ofredrickT1a: depends on the goal - and the strategy. #chsocmCarolyn Clement @singingcarolyn@AmberStamperPhD Collect? Not exactly. Look at, review? Yes. I do a brief report for theannual meeting each year. #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGould@singingcarolyn Oh dont invite people to Twitter unless the tool will work well with theirlearning & communication style #chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybirdT2: getting other people on board!! With idea of sm and as authors #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333T2 Become a presence & a destination in chosen milieu #chsocmBryan Rothamel @BryanPXPT2: I see our church (in a university community) needs to use #chsocm to keep our UVastudents in loop when they have spotty attendance.
  • 7. 7MeredithGould @MeredithGouldT2: #1 goal: deepen existing community & build new ones #chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybirdRT @LuckyCharm333 T2 Become a presence & a destination in chosen milieu #chsocm //andhelping ppl understand this processNora Ortiz Fredrick @ofredrickT2: Develop appropriate engagement platform for student at UAA (local). #chsocm - doesntpredetermine the medium. Theyre very mobile!!Angela @mnplatypusT2 a goal for me is more consistency on Pinterest (I feel like Im doing OK with Facebook andpinterest is a growth area) #ChSocMMiranda Gray @mirgray2Agree. RT @mnplatypus: T1 I think the best we can aspire to is word of mouth #chsocmGod the Healer @GodtheHealerDev #chsocm T2: Plan? We are suppose to have a plan?Shoot…..? I try to tweet an uplifting thought daily. Does that count? #snarkyMeredithGould @MeredithGould@singingcarolyn Twitter evangelism! Love it! #chsocmLaura Catalano @LeistCatalano@GodtheHealerDev does "flying by the seat of ones pants" count as a plan? #chsocmGod the Healer @GodtheHealerDevRT @MeredithGould: T2: #1 goal: deepen existing community & build new ones #chsocmExactly!Bryan Rothamel @BryanPXPT2: My personal plan with my youth is to be available in any fashion they need, when they need.I give them many options. #chsocmDeirdre Daily @deirddaily_#chsocm I students Deaf eloquence and sacred rhetoric. Social media helps me connect withpeople with related interests.Neal F. Fischer @nealffischerT2A.) Is your goal measureable? If so, how do you know if you are successful in reaching yourgoal? #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGould@BryanPXP 2 years ago this #chsocm community didnt exist! Built!
  • 8. 8Cheryl K. @LuckyCharm333@theologybird Id be happy w/getting ppl to understand the reason to aspire to that in the firstplace, forget the process #chsocmCarolyn Clement @singingcarolynAmen! RT @MeredithGould T2: #1 goal: deepen existing community &amp; build new ones#chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybird@LeistCatalano @godthehealerdev :) thats how I started! #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333MT @AmberStamperPhD So many effectiveness factors to eval (qual of interactions vs quant,for ex): hard to go just on feel? #chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybird@LuckyCharm333 Ha--Yes!!! #chsocmGod the Healer @GodtheHealerDevRT @LeistCatalano: @GodtheHealerDev does "flying by the seat of ones pants" count as a plan?#chsocm I hope so … Otherwise I am in trouble.Carolyn Clement @singingcarolyn@AmberStamperPhD I use mix of numbers and anecdotes to explain what and why. #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGouldT2a: Very very difficult to measure faith & successful evangelism b/c it can take yrs for people toactually get to a church #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGouldT2a Thats years between hearing the message & attending church, let alone participating orgetting on the rolls. #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333MT @MeredithGould T2a: difficult to measure faith & successful evangelism b/c it can take yrsfor people to actually get to a church #chsocmAmber Stamper @AmberStamperPhDDo financial resources play a role in the goals that can be set for social media engagement foryall at all? #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGouldT2a: Also, someone might be inspired by your #chsocm but decide to attend church for anotherdenomination, or two!MeredithGould @MeredithGould@AmberStamperPhD Yes #chsocm
  • 9. 9Nora Ortiz Fredrick @ofredrick@MeredithGould IF getting people to a church is your goal. Were trying to get them to God.#notthesame #chsocmAmber Stamper @AmberStamperPhD@MeredithGould Last statistic I read was that it takes on avg. 3 years of relationship-buildingfor conversion decisions to be made #chsocmLaura Catalano @LeistCatalano@AmberStamperPhD yes, we will only use free social media resources unless we can be paidcontent/ads are working #chsocmNeal F. Fischer @nealffischerT3.) What distinguishes your social media implementations from every other Church’s? Whatmakes yours unique? #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333@AmberStamperPhD I wouldnt think so. A church w/enough diverse members should be ableto keep #chsocm going w/volunteers.MeredithGould @MeredithGould@ofredrick Agree but many church communicators are forced to justify their existence butproving theyve gotten butts in pews. #chsocmCarolyn Clement @singingcarolyn@AmberStamperPhD Yes, we can only do so much with so little. But our "so much" can bepretty meaningful. #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGould@AmberStamperPhD Makes sense. Wouldve guessed 3-4. #chsocmAmber Stamper @AmberStamperPhD@singingcarolyn Seems like this is one way where the Internet distinguishes itself as a mediumfor outreach #chsocmEvan Duncan @evanduncan@nealffischer T3) Personal, high quality, artistic, and powerful use of photography and video totell stories of faith. #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333T3 Sad to report, cong thinks even the website is a "waste of money," dislikes #chsocmCarolyn Clement @singingcarolynT3 Good Q. I do follow all the churches in our area to see what they are doing. #chsocmLaura Catalano @LeistCatalanoT3 I use a lot of photos and make images with added text and quotes #chsocm
  • 10. 10Sergio Caputo @binkylifeqEpiscopal Camp Director from MT. Excited to be here for full hr. #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333RT @singingcarolyn T3 Good Q. I do follow all the churches in our area to see what they aredoing. //Excellent! #chsocmBryan Rothamel @BryanPXPT3: Church is starting to experiment in YouTube. I think well expand. Just got a new, youngerpastor so excited for road ahead. #chsocmNora Ortiz Fredrick @ofredrick@MeredithGould Yep. We really want to make denominational adherents (and donors) - notdisciples. No honesty in our metrics. #chsocmNeal F. Fischer @nealffischer@binkylifeq welcome! jump in as you are able #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333RT @LeistCatalano T3 I use a lot of photos and make images with added text and quotes#chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGould@LuckyCharm333 Well, if the website is awful it *is* a waste of money! #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333@MeredithGould True. But hard to keep a website fresh when ppl wont give ministry updates.#chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybirdRT @LuckyCharm333 @MeredithGould True. But hard to keep a website fresh when ppl wontgive ministry updates. #chsocmMiranda Gray @mirgray2Indeed RT @MeredithGould: T2a: Also, someone might be inspired by your #chsocm butdecide to attend church for another denomination, or two!Beth Felice @bfeliceIm slow tonight. Objective is to facilitate the social through community, and not have abroadcast channel of one. #chsocmGod the Healer @GodtheHealerDev#chsocm T3: I am a sole act with no in person relationships, besides friends, colleagues, andconferences, I am able to see the bigger pic.Caroline Carson @Conductor222@nealffischer T3 #chsocm Im not sure if were unique, well, I guess we are b/c were US forrealz! We also try using lots of humor on FB!
  • 11. 11Laura Catalano @LeistCatalano@singingcarolyn I also facebook-stalk other local churches :) #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGould@theologybird @LuckyCharm333 Yes, there is that! #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333RT @LeistCatalano @singingcarolyn I also facebook-stalk other local churches :) #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGould@LeistCatalano Oh lets not call it stalking...lets call it gathering market intelligence! #chsocmNeal F. Fischer @nealffischerT4.) With new social networks popping up, seemingly daily, how do you evaluate new networksfor Church use? #chsocmMiranda Gray @mirgrayOuch RT @ofredrick: Yep. We really want to make denominational adherents (and donors) - notdisciples. No honesty in our metrics. #chsocmMarcus A. Cylar @pastorcylarHate missing the #chsocm chat tonight. The weekly transcripts are so clutch thoGod the Healer @GodtheHealerDev#chsocm T3: It allows me to connect people and gather resources for fellow pastors and clergy.Marlana Portolano @LanaPortolano@theologybird Takes some a lifetime " years of relationship-building for conversion decisions"#chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGouldT4 Great question. Tough to evaluate new platforms without using them a bit but Id ask: dothey help fulfill strategic goals? #chsocmBryan Rothamel @BryanPXPT4 We discussed all SM, I said we would have to be consistent and intentional. Otherwise, betterspend energy elsewhere. #chsocmAngela @mnplatypus@MeredithGould @LeistCatalano #chsocm and really, watching others to some degree shouldbe mandatory for all of usLaura Catalano @LeistCatalano@BryanPXP Not much exciting happening with most local churches in StL and #ChSocM butthings are picking up.
  • 12. 12Cheryl K. @LuckyCharm333T4 Id err on the side of abandon. Estd a 4Sq presence for my church & most of cong still doesnteven know what that is. #chsocmLaura Catalano @LeistCatalano@nealffischer #chsocm T4) We see if we can gauge the # of followers & whether or not itsupports photos/vid/text well, do others use it etc.MeredithGould @MeredithGould@mnplatypus @LeistCatalano Observing others, absolutely! How else would we learn whatworks/what doesnt? #chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybirdT4 is really hard when youre still trying to get ppl to agree with sm in general. Less input abtwhere they/friends are #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGouldT4 I try & test everything out on myself, first and check out what others are doing beforerecommending to churches #chsocmLaura Catalano @LeistCatalano@mnplatypus @MeredithGould yes, I use my church facebook account to "gather intelligence"on about 200 other church organizations #chsocmCarolyn Clement @singingcarolynT4. I have fun playing with new (to me) platforms personally. As I do so, I can start to seeministry applications. #chsocmBeth Felice @bfelice@meredithgould Agree, sometimes you just have to jump in there and see if the accent can beunderstood in your neck of the woods. #chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybirdIf others arent involved in sm, new platforms increase pressure to be an expert and decreasetheir interest. (From what Ive seen) #chsocmMeredithGould @MeredithGould@LeistCatalano @mnplatypus Smart. Very sociological! <thumbs up> #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333RT @MeredithGould T4 I try & test everything out on myself first and check out what others aredoing before recommending to churches #chsocmCarolyn Clement @singingcarolynReally enjoying @snapchat and starting to see how it could be used for #chsocm. But not readyto launch.
  • 13. 13God the Healer @GodtheHealerDev#chsocm T4: I wonder if other SM sites should be used to supplement your main SM site. Justa hairy thought.Steve Kenow @skenow@nealffischer T4 1st make sure established channels are covered, observe and then determine fitin overall strategy #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333@singingcarolyn Isnt that the one where posts disappear after a minute or so? #chsocmAngela @mnplatypus@LuckyCharm333 #chsocm sometimes it takes diving in to really evaluate the potential. Still,there are only so many hours in a dayNeal F. Fischer @nealffischer@singingcarolyn <moderator hat off> I have been playing with Pheed for that reason. Lots ofyouth potential. Also, many reports... #chsocmAmber Stamper @AmberStamperPhD@singingcarolyn Oh please share your thoughts when you do decide to launch! I wouldvethought Snapchat was a tough one! :) #chsocmRobyn Barnes @theologybird@singingcarolyn Say more abt @snapchat please?

  • 15. 15MeredithGould @MeredithGould@singingcarolyn Sharing small/short moments that then disappear so no one can be heldaccountable, right? Thats whats worrisome. #chsocmCheryl K. @LuckyCharm333@singingcarolyn Isnt all #chsocm about that? I guess it depends on where folks are...Beth Felice @bfeliceI think we get caught in echo chambers, we dont "see" much going on. The great value of SM isto seamlessly leap between silos #chsocmAngela @mnplatypusT5 I pretty much have a free reign in trying whatever I like #ChSocMCaroline Carson @Conductor222@nealffischer #chsocm I suggested FB & Twitter accts "as an experiment" b/c was met w/furrowed brows from staff & clergy.
