Popular and emerging forms of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and blogging are all around us. Yet many pastors and church leaders have been reluctant to embrace them.

- Social Media Assist in Community
- Social Media Assist in Communication
- Social Media Assist in Inspiration
- Social Media Allow Better Introductions
