Church of Christ and Social Media
Part One

If you’re in leadership in the Church of Christ, you should be
involved in multiple types of engagement to teach and share
scriptures. Inspiring, teaching and saving souls does not just
happen on Sunday or Wednesday, it is continuous and consistant.

Leadership has many diverse responsibilities, to teach through
leadership. Open communication and transparency between
leadership and the Body is very important. One of the most
damaging things in the Church of Christ is lack of communication
between the members of the Body and the leaders. Assumptions
make asses out of everyone.

The leadership should take the opportunity to recognize the Body,
reinforcing solidarity to the doctrine of Saving Souls and Keeping
Souls Saved; unity through scripture and teaching that does not
modify or change the Word of God.
Leaders through communication should be able to use their gifts
to continue to work in the church, showing and doing, serving as
role models that are effective. They do not tell what they are doing
they show from their works. In their works there is joy, excitement
and a passion to please God and the uplifting of his Kingdom. There
is no room for personal agendas which go against the will of God.
As leaders are working there is engagement that can be posted
online through Social Media platforms marketed by tools that
display a Brand. The only Brand that is of important is the Brand
of God.

The Brand of the Church of Christ goes beyond just being a member
of the Body; it embraces the full spectrum of Saving Souls and
Keeping Souls Saved. Knowing and understanding that none of us
is perfect, but perfection is a target to stay on the right path.

King James Bible
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by
the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good,
and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
As leaders engage more with members of the Body, generational
barriers must be destroyed, this keeps open the flowing of teaching
and sharing of spiritual wisdom. Each generation must know that
they have access to those elders, deacons and senior leaders of the
Body. How will wisdom be shared if there is not open communication?
No one part of the Body is more important than the other. In the 21st
century digital tools must be used to share knowledge that crosses
generations. Ministers, elders, deacons, and others have great tools
to share content that allows their wisdom to be shared and available
for years to come. Those in leadership must be able to teach the
language of the doctrine that crosses generational lines and
integrates technology. The world will try to spread false
doctrine and create distractions. The Church of Christ must remain
steadfast and determined to “keep it real” while keeping up with
technologies that can expand and expound on its doctrines.
