Podcast 350: (Part 2) Discipling In The Digital World Using Discord with Jonah Wiley

Have you heard about Discord? 

Discord is an online digital platform that serves as a good  space to meet and chat with people — despite starting out with a very simple reason: how to communicate with friends while playing games online. You can opt to communicate through chat, voice calls, or face-to-face conversations with people from different parts of the world without a time limit. 

But how can this platform benefit the digital church in building a community and pointing others to Jesus?

In this episode of Social Media Church Podcast, join Nils Smith, Aaron Magnuson, along with Jonah Wiley, as they discuss how Discord has become an amazing tool to create communities, and how the church can use that opportunity to reach non-believers to help them grow more in their relationship with Jesus.

Podcast 343: Starting, Building and Sustaining Your Volunteer Media Team with Briana Zananiri

There are a couple of reasons why an employee stays with a company. A few of these reasons are having a safe working environment, the feeling of being valued, and financial security. 

By being a volunteer, financial security is obviously not applicable. A common denominator volunteers have is having the heart of a servant. So, if there’s something a leader could do for his/her volunteer, that is to help them grow and develop their crafts.

In this episode, podcast guest and one of the SMC Conference speakers, Briana Zananiri shares the blueprint of starting, building, and sustaining a group of media team volunteers in the church world.
