social media

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
  • Security
  • Partnerships
  • Working with government
  • Tools, tips, and the secrets you can’t buy

The summit will feature representatives from organizations such as:

    As much as I hate seeing people's faces buried in their smart phones and tablets, I know it is a sign of the times. We need to use every vehicle at our disposal to share the good news! If you can't get them to look up from that device, invade it!
