Small Groups and Social Media

Wordle: small groups

Are you a group leader who connects with members through the week on facebook? Are you a group director that has established a facebook group for your coaching team? Do you have a group twitter or blog? Does your group connect through online bible applications like YouVersion?  Are you a group that has created a ning page?  If you have other ideas… the rest of us small group leaders would love to hear them. Maybe you know of someone else who’s using Social Media to enhance their ministry? Please have them share their thoughts with us as well.

Just enter in the comments below. This can be an amazing resource for small group ministries!

New Year. New Idea!

I needed something to challenge me in my bible reading time this year.  So I decided to use YouVersion.com’s One-Year Reading Plan to keep me on track.  But to make it more interesting, I invited my small group coaches along for the ride. Then I thought, “Hey, this would be a great way to start 2009 for all of my friends!” So I threw the challenge out to my tweets on Twitter, facebook friends, and friends who I don’t see online.

How about you, would you like to join us? Check out the One-Year Rading Plan.  It’s free and fun. You can read the daily verses, and even comment on them privately or publicly… if you want.  What a great tool! Check out YouVersion today and join us.  If you go, follow me, and I’ll be sure to return the follow. Let’s start 2009 off right together!
