I just started reading Terrace Crawford’s new book “Going Social”, and I have to say he had me hooked right from the first story. Terrace is a veteran of the social media world. He is a well known blogger (terracecrawford.com), writer and editor for ChurchLeaders.com and a youth pastor. While we served together at Crossroads Community Church, Terrace helped the church move into the Social Media world in a big way.
In the book he covers blogs, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. I work with 63 churches and I can say that very few of them leverage social media in any significant way to connect with people and promote the gospel. I think every pastor ought to read this book, and get a copy for the person in the church in charge of media and web.
