Today, over at InfluenceMagazine.com:
- In today’s #InfluencePodcast, Mark Forrester and I talk about how the church can leverage social media for the sake of the gospel. For me personally, the most thought-provoking part of the podcast was when Mark talked about how to know what to post on social media. Just ask two questions about your audience: (1) Will they care? And (2) will they share? (These questions evidently come from Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg.) Good stuff! Take a listen!
- Josiah Kennealy talks about how church leaders can help students avoid financial disaster. Based on research published in his book, Debtless, Josiah writes: “over 39 percent of current college students have no idea how much they owe in student loans. Based on our research, current students have taken on an average of $26,659 in debt — and haven’t graduated yet! Nearly 40 percent of students surveyed said no one informed them about alternatives to student loans.” Yowza!
- Claude Black reviews a new biography of J. H. King, who served as general superintendent of the Pentecostal Holiness Church from 1917 to 1946. I’m Assemblies of God, not PHC, but I love reading Pentecostal history and biography because it reminds me how much the present generation stands not he shoulders of giants from the previous generation.
