10 Ways Facebook Can Help Grow A Ministry

Social media is an incredible tool for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Here are ten (10) ways Facebook can help grow a ministry.

1. Use Facebook’s Fan Page as your church/ministry’s website.

2. Advertise and promote your church’s services, special events and message on Facebook’s Fan Page.

3. Use Facebook to reach the sick and shut in, those without transportation, people working 3rd shifts, and others by linking videos of praise and worship, sermons, etc. on your FB Fan Page.

4. Use Facebook to  recruit volunteers for church ministries and activities. 

5. Use Facebook to receive and answer prayer requests.

6. Use Facebook to communicate with church staff/team members, as well as to gather valuable feedback from staff and members.

7. Click on the “Events” link on Facebook and “Create An Event”. Complete and submit the information form. Invite your Facebook friends/fans.

8. Stay connected with your church’s youth group and other ministries through Facebook updates/ Fan page.

9. Those on your church’s mission trips can use Facebook to remotely post     information and photos of daily activities, accomplishments, and challenges. This enables people back home to “see” what’s going on, and encourages them to support and pray for the missions team.

10. Use Facebook as a fund-raising tool to help meet your church’s financial needs.

Global Day of Prayer 2010

Today, Pentecost Sunday, May 23, 2010, is the Global Day of Prayer. Ten years ago, in July 2000, a dream to begin a Day of Prayer was born in Africa. Today, that dream has become a reality and spread across the planet!

Social media networking continues to play a vital role in spreading the Gospel. The message of the Global Day of Prayer is prayer really makes a difference. Prayer, definitely, changes situations and circumstances. What better time to join our voices with other believers around the world in praying for the healing of our world!
