I (Jeremy) am wanting to put together a great resource for youth workers in the area of social media over at seventy8 Productions. Of course, I can and eventually will put out a resource from my own experiences and knowledge on the subject, but there is no reason to reinvent the wheel. Instead, I want to pool the resources of this YouthMin.org community first and build off of a great foundation with your ideas.
So here is the task: leave an amazing comment on any of these questions below (include the question number for our help) and we will give away a copy of The Youth Worker’s Guide to Helping Teenagers in Crisis to one lucky commenter. All comments considered for this contest must be unique from everyone else who comments and you may comment as many times as you have amazing ideas!
It should be noted that an amazing idea does not fall under the responses such as “You could post a picture…” or “Write up an event for volunteer training.” We are looking for unique and amazing ideas, so be original, think outside-of-the-box, and come up with great ways to empower, encourage, and equip your volunteers for better ministry all around.
- What are some DOs and DON’Ts for volunteers on social media in ministry?
- What are some POSITIVE and NEGATIVE reasons for monitoring volunteers?
- How can we EMPOWER volunteers to better interact online so it isn’t just the lead youth worker’s job all the time.
- How can you use a social media SECRET GROUP for your volunteers in ministry effectively?
We will pick the winner of the contest on ___________________ so make sure you get your submissions in on time, include the question you are answering, and know that you can answer any and all of them and each non-duplicate comment will be entered in for this contest. You never know, your great ideas might end up on our free resources for you later!
All rights reserved. The winners of the contest will be contacted by Jeremy for a mailing address and contact information. All contestants are allowed to win one prize per year. Any forms of cheating, lying, or stealing will result in withdrawing from the contest and banning from all further contests at YouthMin.org. We will only be awarding prizes to commenters in the United States.
