Social Media and the Church

Tony Steward came and talked to my youth ministry class today about social media and the church. I thought he did a great job outlining what it is we're talking about and the implications for youth ministry. I also walked away personally with an ideas list for my ministry including: video podcasting leader training, using blip.tv for videos, and some other cool stuff that's written on the legal pad in my office. Tony talked about everything from wikis to blogs to social networks. Lots of implications for ministry.

    Yeah, he could have definitely given us a ton more. I'm a bit of a nerd so I really enjoy that kind of stuff, but I think it's super practical stuff even if you're not nerdy.
