About the Book
Social media provide an opportunity for congregations to open the doors and windows to their congregational life before people ever step inside. It's no longer all about getting your message out as if people are passively waiting for the latest news from the parish, diocese, or national church. Rather, it's about creating spaces where meaningful relationships can develop. Click 2 Save: The Digital Ministry Bible is a hands-on resource guide for religious leaders who want to enrich and extend their ministries using digital media like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and church or personal blogs. An ideal companion to Tweet If You Heart Jesus: Practicing Church in the Digital Reformation (Morehouse, 2011), Click2Save draws on extensive research and practical experience in church and other ministry settings to provide functional, how-to guidance on effectively using social networking sites in the day-to-day context of ministry.
"This is the must-read book on social media ministry. All church leaders will benefit from its clarity, organization, and practicality. Readers will appreciate the theological and pastoral sensitivities the authors bring as they frame social media inextricably within the revitalization of the church’s mission."
"Finally!—A practical guide for digital ministries. This work is a must read for those who want to learn the “who’s where” and the “what’s what” of the digital domain and, even more importantly, how to make application to ministry. Understanding and taking seriously these digital ministries and practices remains an oft-overlooked but critical ministry competency for ministry in the future. Now I know another way to apply the apostle Paul’s exhortation to take the Good News to the marketplace -- in this digital time and place."
- The Rt. Rev. Sean Rowe, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania and social media and ministry pioneer
