“To Twitter or Not to Twitter…that is the question.” Yesterday, Scott Williams asked this question in his post on ChurchLeaders.com. In it, he laid out 6 reasons why every pastor should be on Twitter.
As a social media guy, I’m a big fan of Twitter. I’ve seen it be an incredibly effective tool in ministry. I believe that God can–and does–use it to transform lives and win people to Christ. However, I don’t know if I’d go so far as to say it’s “a must” for ALL pastors. It’s definitely something to consider, and Scott Williams makes a valid argument as to why you should consider it, but it might not be for everyone.
That being said, I love Scott Williams. I have so much respect for him, and I believe Christ is doing some great things through him and his online ministry! I highly encourage you to check out his post and let me know what you think. Would you consider Twitter necessary for pastors who want to be relevant and effective in their externally focused ministries? Why or why not?
