We’re on the Social Media Church Podcast

April 24, 2014 by

We’re on the Social Media Church podcast this week! Host DJ Chuang interviewed our own Kevin D. Hendricks (that’s me!). We talked about how this blog got started nearly 10 years ago, the evolution of social media and the impact on the church, the role of communication directors, juggling multiple channels, announcements and more.

We talked about some of our new resources, including the Getting Started in Church Communication ebook series and the upcoming Certification Lab.

Here are a few quotes to give you a taste:

“I feel very blessed to have been working on this for 10 years. I feel like it’s incredible for anybody to stick with anything for that long these days and to have the opportunity to do that—I feel very blessed.”

“People of faith, all throughout history, have stepped into these technological advances and said how can we use this to share this gospel? How is this part of our lives and how can we take the gospel wherever we go?”

“It’s a lot of work to do and you need to know how to write and how to navigate the Internet and they’re kind of specialized skills. A lot of pastors have the theological training, but they don’t teach you how to build a website in seminary. They don’t teach you how to use a Twitter account. They don’t teach how to use a lot of these tools, so a lot of these pastors just don’t know.”

So go listen to DJ Chuang and the Social Media Church podcast.
