Dr. Bennett’s workshop on social media emphasized the strategic use of social media for churches.  My concept had been that social media for churches was just a high tech bulletin board for announcements.  Dr. Bennett stressed that social media is not just for information, but it is for connecting with and engaging people.  This approach opens up a plethora of possibilities for churches to more effectively reach people by interacting with them on social media.  She shared creative ideas and substantiated the results of those ideas from her personal experiences.  Her’s is a voice that needs to be heard.
