Can The Church Learn From Twitter



While reading through RSS Feeds this morning I can into a post from TechCrunch which caught my attention.  Twitter traffic almost doubled again in April.  In March Twitter reached 9.3 million, an increase of more than 5 million visitors, or 131%, from February.  It got me thinking, what would it take for the church to experience growth like this?

In many ways, the church the Church (big C) would have to be innovative instead of churches (little c). That would come from collaboration.  And most of all we need to be more prayerful as the greatest vision always emerges from people that see the destruction.

I believe the Church (big C) needs to baseline and change the method and medium of how the gospel is communicated.  We need to get away from the mindset that the church is not here to meet our needs; and run toward the fact we are here to meet the world’s needs.

What do you think?

  1. I agree completely. I think we tend to look past what God really purposed the church for: to care for the poor and needy. God has also given us these new tools, like Twitter, to carry out that mission.
