    UPDATE: from Aaron

    32:25

    We are finally in the post-pandemic transition phase in this fast-changing digital world. This team-up doesn’t sound so good but it’s happening now. How are churches dealing with this transition? Is it safe to go out and hold physical church services like we used to? What happens to our digital presence?? How is this affecting our ministries?? These are just some of the many questions we’re answering together as we go through this transition season. Join Social Media Church host Aaron Magnuson in this episode as he talks about Social Media Church’s challenges since the Social Media Conference last July (and what you, as a church leader can learn from it!), and many other exciting plans for the community here at Social Media Church. Exciting times coming ahead!    Share your thoughts using the hashtag #SMCPodcast.  Show Notes: Aaron Magnuson Facebook Aaron Magnuson Twitter Aaron Magnuson Instagram Aaron Magnuson LinkedIn Aaron Magnuson Clubhouse Nils Smith  Nils Smith Facebook Nils Smith Twitter  Nils Smith Instagram  Nils Smith Linkedin  Social Media Conference

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

    46:43

    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.

    As churches continue to ride and embrace the complex yet exciting wave of social media, it’s best to be reminded and grounded of the purpose of why we are utilizing these platforms – that is to make real connections and relationships in our sphere of influence so we can bring people to Christ. So if our goal is only to get more likes, engagements, or shares on social media, then we need to reevaluate things.   In this episode, host Aaron Magnuson shares a conversation with Stadia’s Director of Digital Church Planting and our podcast guest, Jeff Reed about the importance of discipleship in a phygital church.   Show Notes: Aaron Magnuson Facebook Aaron Magnuson Twitter Aaron Magnuson Instagram Aaron Magnuson LinkedIn Aaron Magnuson Clubhouse Jeff Reed Facebook Jeff Reed Twitter Jeff Reed Instagram Jeff Reed LinkedIn Jeff Reed Email Stadia Church Planting Website
