Twenty Effective Social Media Posts Your Church Should Try

Social media is a powerful tool that your church can use to reach people inside and outside of your congregation. Whether it be Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Snapchat, each platform can be incredibly useful for touching lives and promoting your ministry.

For most churches that I talk to, it’s not a lack of desire that keeps them from regularly posting on their social pages, but a lack of content. Have you ever been confused or frustrated about what to post on your church’s social pages? It definitely can be overwhelming to come up with new ideas every week, right?

  1. Great post, it go to my favorites

  2. Great ideas!! Thanks for the post!

  3. Great stuff! I already do some of this!

  4. Solid, Kendall. I’ve found that my church loves when we post anything with people (we ARE the church, huh!?), the Worship Band, or solid sermon points/quotes.

    This reminds me to schedule up more, with the variety of ideas you’ve shared here.

  5. This is a so helpful! We forget sometimes how powerful social media is. Thanks for the reminder and examples.

  6. Thank you for the great ideas! My fav is #20. We get so wrapped up with ops that we forget the promo!

  7. We have begun to do small profiles on some of our faithful volunteers on Facebook and Instagram and it is good to see how the congregation is uplifting and encouraging the people we are profiling by affirming how helpful they are or how they always have a smile…etc.
