New book by web pastor Nils Smith focuses on using social media to move people forward in their relationship with God
Through social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, the world is more connected than ever, creating an abundance of new opportunities for Christ’s disciples to “go into the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” For those who are less than tech savvy, however, utilizing this great abundance of new tools can be a challenge.
As the social media advisor for Community Bible Church in San Antonio and web pastor of CBC’s online community church, blogger and author Nils Smith understands that challenge. That’s why he wrote Social Media Guide for Ministry (Group Publishing, March 2013), a no-nonsense, easy-to-comprehend guide to confronting and mastering the new technology. “This is an exciting time for ministry leaders as the world of social media is creating incredible gospel opportunities,” Smith explained. “The challenge comes in understanding how to best utilize these remarkable tools for ministry.”
“The possibilities really are endless,” Smith said, “and new opportunities to take the gospel to the ends of the earth through the World Wide Web are continually opening. My goal is to encourage and inspire others to use the technological tools that are at our fingertips to proclaim the gospel as never before.”
