Share the Gospel in 140 Characters or Less

May 21, 2008 by

When you talk about marketing it’s easy to focus on design. But writing matters. A lot.

Here’s a chance to sharpen your writing skills. Brian Baute has thrown down the first ever Tweet the Gospel challenge. The idea is to share the gospel message within the confines of the 140-character limit of Twitter. (What’s Twitter? It’s a mini-blog application. We’ve talked about how Twitter can be used for churches and Josh shared a great example earlier today with We The Church)

So check out Brian’s blog for more details and see if you can share the gospel in 140 characters or less. It’s kind of like trying to be the Billy Graham of the Twitter age. And hopefully one step smarter than bumper sticker slogans.

    Awesome, good job boys.
    Here’ my first attempt:
    “we’re all broken people, doing things we regret and will have to answer for – Jesus came to give us life, forgive our mistakes & set us free”

    Simply include a link to the animated gospel tract ‘’ in your email signature, saying something like, ‘p.s. you might like this gospel cartoon …’.
