Social Media Use Among Young Clergy

Fifty percent of a small sample of young, wired clergy indicate that they use social media to provide pastoral care, 29 percent use social media to help them prepare for worship, and 22 percent use social media to support their evangelism/outreach/mission efforts. Eighty-three percent use Facebook as a social media platform, followed by 46 percent who use text messaging, and 20 percent who utilize email. While the survey sample was too small to be used as a definitive indication of how young clergy use social media, it does offer a window into the ways younger clergy use social media for ministry. A summary is available from the New Media Project at Christian Theological Seminary.
