Church Leaders Going Social!

"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, President, LifeWay Research

"Going Social is an invaluable resource for church leaders navigating the new frontier paved by these technologies and provides practical, how-to steps to help churches and church leaders have a voice and get engaged in the conversation that's happening online."  

--Tim Schraeder, Co-director, The Center for Church Communication

"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, Executive Pastor, Granger Community Church and Author of Vision: Lost and Found
"Connected" is beyond a buzz word, it's a life line.  Making sure you are merged into the mind and heart of other networks fuels your effectiveness in advancing the Kingdom of God. Terrace Crawford knows how to leverage the power of connecting. His book Going Social will transform your social networking into super networking!" 

--Tony Nolan, Evangelist and Author of Gasp!

"Terrace does a masterful job of explaining the nuts and bolts of social media in a ministry context. If you are in ministry on any level you need to be social because social media is increasingly becoming the language and the medium people use to communicate. This book will help you become fluent and effective in all things social media!" 

--Sam Luce, Utica Campus Pastor and Global Family Pastor

"Until now, trial and error was the primary avenue for church leaders to learn about social media. For those learners looking for the manual, it's here! Terrace has pulled together encouragement, stories, and practical how-to's together in one helpful place-- through Going Social!

--Kem Meyer, Communications Director, Granger Community Church and Author of Less Clutter, Less Noise.

"If you're on the fence about using social media in ministry, Going Social is a push in the right direction. If you're unsure about how to get started, Going Social is the primer you need. If your social media efforts aren't producing any engagement, Going Social is the guidebook you've been waiting for!"

--Scott McClellan, Director, The Echo Conference; Editor of Echo Hub

We showed this last year at our church on Father's Day... but I thought it deserved a repeat here on the blog. 

Happy Father's Day!

"New" Resource for New Christ-Followers

I am always on the hunt for great resources for students. I've run across a "new" resource that will really help answer a lot of questions new Christ-followers have!  It's a brand-new interactive journal called "NEW: First Steps for New Christ-Followers" from my great friends at YouthMinistry360.  I cannot wait to get these in the hands of students!

Here's a great description from the YM360 website

When students give their lives to Christ, the Bible is pretty clear: They. Are. NEW! But what does it mean to be NEW? What does it mean to see God in a NEW way? What does it mean to live out the call to follow Christ? These questions can be daunting ones in the lives of the new or “young” Christ-followers in your youth ministry.
But don’t worry! That’s what NEW is all about. NEW: First Steps For New Christ-Followers is an interactive journal that helps students take the next steps in their new journey with Christ.
This interactive journal packs a big punch. Here’s some of what’s inside:
• 4 weeks of biblically solid, interactive, and creative daily devotions
• Important articles dealing with key issues of students’ NEW faith
• A collection of charts, verses, lists, and graphics to help them understand the Bible
• Guides to help them go deeper in their faith when they’re ready

This video made me laugh so I had to share...  You could use this as a great lead-in to a talk on inviting and investing in others.
