Gear up and register now for "Social Media for Ministry Bootcamp" at Pacific School of Religion – this Saturday, Oct. 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The full day workshop is presented by The Center for Progressive Renewal (CPR). CPR's Social Media Intensives help equip faith leaders with the tools they need for 21st Century ministry, through exploration of the "why on earth should I" and "how on earth do I" of social networking technology.
Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and YouTube are changing the way we create community and think about ministry. Social networking is more than just using the latest new technology – it's about a commitment to extend God's hospitality. Today's technology makes it easy to speak up, reach out, and connect. And it's here to stay!
Workshop participants will explore how to engage, enrich, and expand community, as they:
- Receive hands-on tutorials with Facebook, Twitter, blogging and YouTube
- Learn to identify and hone the purposes for engaging with social media
- Begin to develop a social media strategy that fits individual contexts
- Explore how to use technology more effectively in worship, education, and spiritual formation
- Discuss the theological and ecclesiological implications of this age of social networking
Registration is $125 per person, or $99 for alumni and $60 for students.
