In this episode of Social Media Church, DJ Chuang talks with Justin Lathrop about how a church could use Twitter to connects locally (taking a cue from a twitter-active mayor), how he uses social media as a connector and strategist, and a lesson from his social media faux pas.
Justin blogs at JustinLathrop.com + @justinlathrop on Twitter + facebook.com/justin.lathrop on Facebook. Justin Lathrop is Director of Strategic Relations at General Council of the Assemblies of God and previously the Director of Strategic Development at The Oaks Fellowship.
