Panel: On This Rock You Shall Build a Brand: Social Media Strategies for Churches and Synagogues

We’d all agree that attending religious services in person is ideal. However, with a pandemic not over… as well as a younger generation that puts less value on religious services, social media is the new fisherman's net. This session will discuss generational shifts and strategies that must conform to attract the digital congregation. Take away an understanding of: 

  • Why online services are more than a temporary COVID strategy
  • New opportunities to expand your message globally
  • The importance of engaging via social media platforms
  • Attracting the next generation by utilizing content to engage children
  • Platforms and target audiences
