I was thinking a lot today about social networks and websites in the arena of “church and ministry.” I found myself with more questions than answers… what is church’s website really for? to reach people with questions or seeking? to be a usable, live site for current membership to connect and share? or is that need filled by an integrated or connected virtual social network, which supports and strengthens the physical/facetoface relationships? I know what I’d personally like, but I’m wondering what y’all think. if you read this and want to take a second, I’d love tk hear your thoughts and from different generations if possible. 1- how does your current church website act? who does it seve how? is it effective? 2- what would an effective church website look like in your mind? 3- how does facebook/Twitter play into ministry? does your church employ social networks to advance ministry? I’d love to hear any thoughts at all on the subject! it’s been on my mind a lot lately for some reason. One last thought- Jesus went to where the people were gathering to meet them and talk with them in their element…where are people gathering to share ideas when not in person today?
