Summer Boone of Church by the Glades: Episode 51

Summer Joy Boone is Director of Assimilation and Social Media at Church by the Glades in Coral Springs, Florida. We had such a fun conversation for this episode of Social Media Church podcast, covering all kinds of topics, including: going from social business marketing to church communications, fostering transparency, why having a social media policy is important, using a winning combo of Instagram + Twitter + Facebook, value of the call to action, only posting content worthy of sharing, weaving together the online with the offline, giving people something to talk about, managing time usage on social media, what’s great about a church that’s social, and so much more!

Apologies for the less-than-optimal sound quality tarnished by ambient background noise on my side and the occasional artifacts from internet bandwidth hiccups of a cross-country conversation spanning 3,000+ miles. And, please forgive me for misspeaking the name of the church during this episode.

You never know who will show up in @pastordhughes office! #WWJST
