Social media can be used in many imaginative ways by churches to engage with their audiences. I’ve chosen to show you 11 examples from Facebook, but you can use Instagram, Pinterest or Twitter. It doesn’t really matter which social network you use as long as long as you are actively engaged on it. I’ve written before about how to engage on social media before. I strongly recommend you read this before you put any creative tactics in place for your church on your social media platform of choice.

I’ll let the pictures do that talking. So have a look at the pictures and ask yourself what they would look like in your church context.

1. Show how your services are put together


2. Go Behind The Scenes


3. Give A Sneek Peek


4. Celebrate Staff


5. Take Us With You


6. Celebrate Volunteers



7. Show Pastors Speaking


8. Have fun


9. Celebrate Significant Milestones


10. Ask Engaging Questions


11. Quote Scripture


These are just a few imaginative ways you can use social media for your church. You don’t have to just use these tactics on your official church feed, if you are a church leader of any level you can use these for your personal feed (see my post on how church leaders can use social media). The community that you influence will celebrate with what you are passionate about.

Your turn

These are just some of the ways you can tell the story of the life of your church. There are many more ways. What have you seen or done that you like? Comment below.
