The Worldwide Christian Community, ChristiaNet.com, is growing rapidly from the use of social media. The site reported six million monthly page loads and has received over 500,000 “Likes” on their Facebook page as of October 20, 2011.
According to CEO Bill Cooper, “We [ChristiaNet.com] are dedicated to the ministry of Christ and to the fellowship of Christians everywhere by engaging them through social media and discipling them with ChristiaNet’s resources.”
You can find Christian news, articles, blogs, e-cards, clipart, jobs, communities, and Bible quizzes and trivia on the site. You can even sign-up to join free Bible study.
While behind the times at first, many churches and faith-based services have begun to recognize the advantage of using social media sites, such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. ChristiaNet has been able to create effective advertising that relate to their audience, thanks to joining over 30 social media sites.
ChristiaNet’s primary mission is the reach the lost for Christ, and the use of social media has helped them to spread the Gospel with great speed.
