Episode 2: Social Media Church with Nils Smith

An extended conversation with Nils Smith (@NilsSmith), the Social Media Pastor at Community Bible Church (CBC), San Antonio, Texas. Actually, his title is Pastor of Social Media and Young Adults (at the time of this writing).

Nils shares about CBC launched its online church in just 6 weeks back in July 2010 and now CBC Online is reaching 7,500 computers weekly with 168 services, that’s one every hour on the hour 24/7, plus its Spanish channel (CBCespanol.com), and online life groups. We even talk about staffing, volunteers, metrics, what’s flopped, finances, and more.

  1. Nils – you mentioned you turn off the live chat of MediaSocial during times when hosts are not available…We also use MS at Granger Community Church and have looked in to 24/7 broadcasting as well but I’m curious how you go about managing the chat on and off?

    Thanks and great info!
