Many believe technology use in the church started only in the last century. However, it didn't just begin with radio broadcasts and TV evangelism; it dates back to the Old Testament, when God’s people used various tools to communicate messages from God. One example was when Noah built an ark to deliver a message from God.
Today, the tech-mediated ministry is evident in social media, live streaming of church services, mobile apps, and more. While many churches rush to reach high engagement, some people believe that what matters most are the stories of lives changed. Churches often focus on the quantitative side, but it's essential to consider the qualitative aspect.
In this episode of the Social Media Podcast, Heath Woolman, Chief of Staff and Instructor at Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth, TX., and Bryan Barrineau, Student Pastor of FBC Enterprise, share their insights based on their study of Technology-Mediated Ministry and its role in fulfilling...

Posting full sermons online has become standard for most churches, but short-form video has taken over social media, and churches have struggled to keep up. The content is in the sermon, but the time required to edit horizontal to vertical while finding the right clips, editing the captions, and everything in between is no small task!
In this podcast, Corey Alderin explains how they’ve simplified the process of creating short-form content from sermons and why they’ve done it with the trends on TikTok, Instagram, and even YouTube.
Many people say that a church doesn’t need to worry about reviews. But we think otherwise.
It doesn’t matter if reviews are on Yelp, Google, or any other social media platform. A review is still a review—and it matters. Pastors and leaders must understand that reviews can affect the church more than you think. They don’t exactly tell the world how God is moving in your community, but they tell you that some things ought to change.
Reviews by real people–newcomers, regular churchgoers, volunteers, and staff–should matter more. Every opportunity should be an avenue to improve and encourage others in telling how the church has made an impact in their lives.
Watch this episode of the Social Media Church Podcast as Nils Smith and Aaron Magnuson discuss getting reviews online. Learn why you shouldn’t ignore the feedback you receive, what you can do, and how you can highlight the work that God is doing.
