Announcing My New Book!

I'm excited to announce to you some big news in my world!  On September 01, 2012 my new book will be released!  "Going Social: A Practical Guide on Social Media for Church Leaders," published by Beacon Hill Press, will release nationwide in just a few short months but you can [preorder yours here now through!]    

Here's a blurb from the description:
People around the world are talking. They are connecting each day online--through social media. Corporations around the world recognize the power of social media and are leveraging it to reach customers though platforms such as blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Why can't churches do the same thing? Christianity has the greatest message to deliver, yet churches struggle to share it. Terrace Crawford helps uncover reasons ministry leaders may resist the use of social media and dispels some of the myths surrounding it. With short, accessible chapters, #Going Social: A Practical Guide on Social Media for Church Leaders provides a step-by-step guide to getting started, crucial insights to help you develop an effective social media strategy, and gives real-life examples of ministries and leaders who are using media in powerful ways. Reimagine your social media presence and successfully connect with your church and your world. With the help of #Going Social, you can create an online community in no time!
Here are a few thoughts on my book from some folks who've read it:

"After reading Going Social only two words came to mind: Simply Strategic. Actually, this book is simply genius!  This is an amazing tool for church leaders trying to find their way through the convoluted maze of the online world. Every church leader needs this book in his/her tool box!"
-- Tim Stevens (@timastevens), Executive Pastor, Granger Community Church and Author of Pop Goes the Church.

"In this day of social media interconnectedness, followers of Christ need to be familiar with the multitude of ways we have to engage culture. We will continue to be behind the curve if we ignore the most dynamic tool for creating gospel relationships in the last 50 years: social media.  Terrace's book, Going Social: A Practical Guide on Social Media for Church Leaders provides a wealth of information about all forms of social media, giving pastors and others who want to influence culture the insights they need to do so. Digest this book, then engage your digital world!"
 -- Ed Stetzer (@edstetzer), President, LifeWay Research

"Terrace Crawford's book, Going Social, is a great resource to help you develop a social media strategy for yourself or your church. The only thing missing was a chapter on how Foursquare® should be banned forever. Good stuff!" 
--Josh Griffin (@joshuagriffin), High School Pastor, Saddleback Church 

The book releases on September 01 but you can [preorder yours here now through!]  Going Social will be available in digital formats.   Thanks for sharing the word about the book on the interwebs too!  Make sure to use #GoingSocial on twitter!
