Video: What’s Your Story

Video: What’s Your Story

September 9, 2011 by

Last night in Minneapolis the Speak Conference shared more than two hours of church communication wisdom. We were able to snag some of the video, so here’s my talk on sharing your church’s story.

Check out the preview we posted earlier this week (not knowing that we’d have the video to share today) for an overview and below we’ll post some of the nuggets that made it to Twitter as well as some of the resources mentioned in the talk.

Twitter-worthy snippets:

  • Each tweet is a brick in the wall of your story. –Michelle Brown
  • Re-runs are okay. Find a different way to tell the same story again and again. –Sheepish Design
  • Don’t feel like you have to pack the entire salvation story into one tweet. It won’t work. –Justin Wise
  • Don’t talk about what you do as much as why you are doing it. –Social Media Shepherds
  • Are you telling the greatest story ever told or are you telling less than that? –Adam Hann


Thanks to Sheepish Design for putting on the Speak Conference and Josh Lewis from the Table for recording the video.

    Always nice to inspirational messages. Using the latest technologies to do this is a great way to spread the message. The tips were interesting and helpful.

    Great talk, Kevin! This really should motivate folks to just jump in an DO SOMETHING. I think so many churches struggle with how to do it perfectly, which technologies to use, how to hedge against every possible risk or failure, etc.

    The truth is, Technology moves too fast to suffer from paralysis by analysis. It was great hearing about how you just jumped in there with Twitter, and along the way it turned into something great.
