Social-media leaders from churches, ministries, nonprofits, and companies will be descending on Washington, DC for the Best of Social Media Summit. The summit, known as #BestofSMS on Twitter and Facebook, is an event organized by a few church leaders. The goal is to create a cohesive network for learning and growing together as we use media to meet ministry needs.
The summit, which is more of a group discussion and time for fellowship than a traditional conference, is fully dependent on engagement and input from attendees. Unlike many conferences where a speaker lectures and everyone furiously takes notes, this conference is full of active tweeting, blogging, back-and-forth discussion, and good coffee.
Topics likely to be raised may be:
- Training social-media volunteers
- Public relations and proactive messaging
- Working with government
- Tools, tips, and the secrets you can’t buy
The summit will feature representatives from organizations such as:
- Logos Bible Software / Faithlife
- Saddleback Church
- Harvest America
- Assemblies of God
- Willow Creek Association
- Compassion International
- Focus on the Family
- Social Ecclesia
- Think Eternity
- and more!
