Purpose Driven Networking


There are many types of online networkers writing blogs, and posting updates on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube! Some are problem solvers. Some are conversationalists. Others are producers.

Brian Solis, social media blogger at briansolis.com, has written an insightful post on Behaviorgraphics, in which he identifies 18 different categories of social media networkers.

However, the most effective networker is the purpose driven networker, the strategic networker! The purpose driven networker is someone who engages online with a purpose, a mission, a strategy.  He or she proactively connects with others  with vision, trust, and cooperation in order to build a community to accomplish worthwhile goals!

For example, the purpose of my networking is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ!  My goal is to fulfill the Great Commission.  Online social networking is a fantastic way to spread the Word of God, build partnerships, and to encourage and minister to others in our local communities and around the globe!

Expanding Your Church’s Social Network

Jesus did not isolate himself from people. In fact, he was very social, very connected to people. Every church is a social network engaged in practicing and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, blogs, podcasts, etc.) provides channels which connect people. The question is whether your church/ministry will expand its social network beyond its walls to connect with the ever-increasing number of people (both inside and outside the church) who are attaching themselves to these social media channels. 

Virtually every church/ministry (in the developed, and many developing countries) can use the tools of social media, in some way, to reach the unchurched. In addition, social media can serve as an easy hub of communications to stay connected with members and ministries. Social media provides a tailor-made vehicle to carry forth the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18 – 20) . Can your ministry afford not to be connected to social media?



Social media can, most definitely, serve as an effective catalyst to expand your church’s social network!

Until next time, remember, you can do all things through Christ Jesus!

God Bless,
