“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
I enjoy social media. (You’ve probably discovered that?) And as a platform to communicate God’s love to the world, it’s a fantastic tool in the arsenal of every believer. Add to the mix the latest social media darling: Pinterest. You can use it for ministry, too, I’m finding out. (Click the thumbnail above to visit my Pinterest site.)
Pinterest is all about pinning and re-pinning. Basically, it’s an online pin / bulletin board where you “pin” pictures, notes, videos, etc., from anywhere on the web. You can upload your own stuff, too.
With this in mind I’ve come up with my own way of using Pinterest to share the Gospel. (I’m still learning.)
The quick bullet list below is meant to be a help to your ministry endeavors on Pinterest, whatever they may be (links to my example Pinterest boards are included)…
7 Ways to Use Pinterest for Ministry:
1. Dive in. Pray for God to direct you. See where He might lead. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
5. Include descriptions with your own pins (pictures) plus use hashtags, too (they are searchable on Pinterest just like on Twitter).
6. Interact with others by commenting on their pins. Follow others and their boards. Be social. Be friendly.
