Special days in the church, such as Easter and Christmas, mean reaching your community in new and unique ways. Having a social media plan can enhance the effectiveness of these outreach programs, helping you remaining faithful to "preach the Gospel". This interactive session will present an outline for preparing and implementing a social media campaign, regardless of past technology experience. Strengths and weakness of social sites will be discussed, along with tools and resources to implement the campaign.

Presented at the All Church Ministries Conference (Southwestern Assemblies of God University), March 1, 2014
