NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Mark Eutsler, PhD, a member of the Linden UMC and member of the Indiana Conference Communication Team, will facilitate “Communicating Faith in the 21st Century,” a new online course offered by United Methodist Communications of Nashville.
The course’s four sections include Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram, plus Blogs. It evolved from the book We Must Speak by UM Communications General Secretary Larry Hollen.
Participants can learn to explain the importance of telling stories of faith and sharing individual messages in the public sphere, craft and share personal stories of faith, and identify people and organizations with whom to build relationships via social media and other 21st century communications tools.
The first course runs Sept.18 through Oct. 30. A second offering runs Nov. 6 through Dec.18. More information is available at www.umcom.org and click on “Church Communications Training.” Upon successful completion, students will receive one CEU from the Society for the Advancement of Continuing Education for Ministry.
