I recently had the opportunity to read The Blogging Church by Brian Bailey of Fellowship Church (Grapevine, TX) and Terry Storch of LifeChurch.tv (Edmond, OK). It is the perfect book for church leaders who are wanting to learn how to use blogs to enhance their ministry but don’t know where to begin.
Brian and Terry answer the questions that every beginning blogger asks andÂ educate the reader on important how-to’s and benefits of blogging.
Of course, first you must determine if blogging is right for your church. Here are a few pointers from the book to help you decide:
- With limited staff and little technology expertise, any new piece of technology must have a persuasive answer to the question, “Is it a tool or a toy?”
- If you faceÂ a decision on how to invest the time and money of your church and staff, you must determine what the return on ministry will be. In other words, what is the measurable ministry benefit?
And if you still aren’t sure if blogging is right for you, read the book to get the entire scope of the pros and cons of blogging.
