Earlier this month, Open Network hosted the Church Social Media Roundtable where twelve of the most creative and innovative churches gathered to learn church social media strategies from one another—all with the heart to reach more people for Jesus.
We’ve compiled the key takeaways from conversations with churches like Hillsong, Fresh Life, North Point, and NewSpring. Plus, we linked out to free social media resources you won’t want to miss.
If you don’t oversee your church social media, be sure to send this to the person who does. They’ll thank you for it!

When it comes to social media, having the right photo is key. Did you know we offer high-quality stock photography from Life.Church and NewSpring for you to download and use in your church? View our Christmas, worship, youth, missions, and lobby collections.
Verse of the Day Images
Do you share the Verse of the Day images from the YouVersion Bible App? Now you can download the Verse of the Day images early so you can work them into your social media scheduling ahead of time. Find their 2020 plan, and start downloading January’s graphics—we’ll continue to add more graphics as created.
