Episode 170 – Helping The Church Reach More People With Technology – With Chris Abbott

Episode sponsored by

The last month has been an incredibly insightful ride. It has essentially been a masterclass in ministry leadership. Today, we take it a step further and invite Chris Abbott to the podcast to discuss his insight, wisdom, stories, and some laughter around the most current ideas of churches, reaching new people and embracing technology. He tackles the tough topics of Facebook (and instagram), why we should be reaching people and prioritizing our why.

Chris Abbott’s extensive years of experience as a pastor, marketer, and church leader have given him unique and practical insight on how to use social media to attract new visitors. He has been a part of 4 local church plants and coached thousands of pastors through his online coaching programs. He now runs the Church Growth Agency and helps pastors around the country grow their church through Facebook Ads, online marketing and digital ministry.
