A long history of being the best podcast for church media people

There is a massive backlog of conversations around the theology, philosophy, practice of social media in the church. Pioneers in the space when social media was beginning, SMC Podcast was ready to be the expert voice when the pandemic hit. Excellent hosts and great guests. Practical and prophetic.

Great help for integrating social media and Gospel

I recently became the social media director for our Church (as well as SS teacher and pastor-in-training), so I've been in need of intelligent discussion about how to use social media in such a way that shines the message of the Gospel through our church, and SMC has been extremely helpful for this. They talk about almost every social media channel we use (although I haven't heard any talk of Faithlife yet), and they talk about new developments well. If you're new to the responsibility of church social media, SUBSCRIBE to this channel. It will do you well.
