Workshop on Effective Social Media Ministry at Cru17

The Workshop

I’m excited to let e4e readers know about a workshop during the Cru17 Connection Weekend by my friend, Steve Raquel, on July 23rd at 2:45 in Clark A103. His workshop, titled, What Would Jesus Snapchat? Will help us know how to use social media effectively to share the Good News.

Jesus built his ministry through sharing stories to help relate the good news to a hungry generation. Today, the stories remain, but the medium has shifted from oral to digital. How as Christians should we look and leverage these platforms to be effective? Should we be using them and why? Come hear Steve and be encouraged and equipped!

Steve shares a brief introduction to his talk in this video:
