Tell Your Church’s Stories in Facebook, Twitter and YouTube

Meet Kelsey the beautiful miracle baby - Share your storiesSocial media is a revolution.  At no other time in history has a message or news about an event or even video of that event been able to be spread to so many people so quickly.  Consider the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

Within 12 hours of the quake, there were over 4.5 million related Facebook posts from every continent (except Antarctica).  Millions of people posted to Twitter with the rate of related tweets getting to over 1,200 tweets per minute.  Within a few days there were over 9,000 earthquake related videos posted to YouTube and over 7,000 tsunami related videos.

From Death to Life:
Now consider the following video, “Meet Kelsey the Beautiful Miracle Baby“.  It’s the story of a baby girl who was born not breathing and with no heartbeat.  It’s the story of a family who went from the joy of the birth of a child to the fear that they had lost the child before they even met her.  It’s the story of faith and prayer and a wonderful miracle from an amazing God.

If you take a look at this video on Godvine, you’ll see that the video was just posted on May 9th, 2011, 3 days ago.  Already the video has been viewed over 850,000 times, has over 270,000 Facebook Likes, and has been shared on Facebook by over 271,000 people.  That’s in just three days!!

What Stories Can Your Church Members Share?
Your church is full of stories.  Stories of how God is working in the lives of each of your members.  Your church, itself, may have an interesting story, but when I say, “Tell your church’s stories in Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube” I don’t mean the story of 1st Baptist Church in Austin, TX (or whatever church you attend). I mean tell the stories of your church members.  Remember the church is the people.

Your church probably has thousands of inspirational stories that can be told through written stories, videos, and slide shows.  Take a little time to tell those stories.  Maybe you can create a blog just for member stories.  Perhaps you can create a YouTube channel for videos of your member’s stories.  It can be great church marketing, but even more than that, it can be an awesome testimony to the Glory and Grace of Jesus Christ!
