Finally: a practical, how-to guide for leaders bridging digital social media and parish ministry
  • Co-written by an Episcopal scholar of digital media and spirituality and a Gen-X Lutheran pastor, both popular among Facebook, Twitter and blog followers
Social media provides an opportunity for congregations and religious organizations to open the doors and windows to their common life before people ever encounter them in person. In this digitally-integrated world, 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 using new media to create spaces where meaningful relationships can develop.
 
Click 2 Save: The Digital Ministry Bible is a hands-on strategy 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 YouYJesus: Practicing Church in the Digital Reformation (Morehouse, 2011), Click 2 Save draws on extensive research and 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.

"The chapter on practicing the art of digital ministry is perhaps the strongest. Discussions about offering hospitality, care, formation and community-building have a more timeless quality. This book can be helpful for those trying to expand their ministries into the digital realm." —Dorothy S. Linthicum, editor, Episcopal Teacher
