Social Networking for Ministry

I recently starting using Twitter to stay connected with others in ministry. It has been great because I am getting to follow some of my favorite speakers and also keep in touch with others in student ministry! As far as students, I use Facebook to keep in touch with the students in my ministry. I send them messages, comments, and such to let them know I’m praying for them! Our student ministry, The Grove (www.ugbcgrove), now has it’s own Facebook group and it has been great! The parents and teens are loving it because we can upload and tag the students with pics we take at activities and such. Also, we can get info out a whole lot easier and better through the Facebook! I would love to hear what others have to say about using these sites for ministry purposes! Please comment and let me hear your thoughts and vote on the poll below!
