Facebook, Twitter and you name it social media is all the rage. People feel empowered to share what they want, when they want. But is that how we should be living our lives?

When I began using social media I was hesitant. It all started with a popular social media account in 2005 called MySpace. (And no, I’m not giving you my outdated and abandoned MySpace account.) It was all the rave. Everyone was on it. Kids loved it, parents hated it and the church did everything to condemn it. 

Why social media is the most important tool at your disposal.

Discover 5 Things you can Do to boost your social engagement.

Remember when MySpace was the biggest thing since sliced bread? As time moved on, social media evolved and new kids moved into the block. But how do we utilize these platforms to our advantage?

Facebook and Twitter are the largest and biggest social media platforms in the world and if you want to be successful in business, just existing on these platforms will only get you so far. We dabble with it. We play in the sandbox and then when we realize we don’t know what we’re doing, we vacate. 

FACEBOOK GROUPS VS PAGES: WHICH IS BETTER?

There is a war happening between Facebook users. Should one have a Fan page or a Group page for their business? It seems a silly question, however the debate is ever real.

I have been a part of several group pages and have liked even more fan pages. The groups I’m a part of and the connections I’ve made have made the experience of social media all the more fun. But personally I prefer using fan pages for business.

My church, Life Church, in Eden Prairie, Minnesota began a new chapter four months ago. Our Lead Pastor, Dale Sisam, was seeking God for the next chapter. “Where do you want Life Church, Lord?” was his cry. That cry was answered in the most unusual way.

Facebook.

That may sound strange to some; but if you’re anything like me, you’ll breeze through post after post after post on Facebook just to find something worth commenting on or reading about. This is what happened to Pastor Dale.

He found an article linking to a discipleship organization called, 24toDouble.org. This organization promises that your church will double in size in 24 months. Yet, when you begin to research this organization you find it’s just a marketing gimmick – they even tell you that up-front. The real agenda behind 24toDouble is discipleship.
