Are Restoration Movement churches interested in what can be accomplished if their churches were to get involved in Social Media and engagement in Social Networks? My answer may be anecdotal, but I have some insight. I just got back from the International Conference on Missions in Peoria,
Restoration Movement preachers do not have an adequate support network. Perhaps it’s not a unique phenomenon to RM Churches. I wonder out loud if preachers in general have this challenge.
Restoration Movement Preachers Need More Friends
If I were to ask you – “How many close friends do you have?”
Pastors, Youth and Senior of Restoration Movement churches as well as non-RM churches get asked hard questions. Life questions. I took a poll in a few groups to see what I could learn. An RM preachers group (2500+), RM members group (6700+) and a general Youth Pastors group 8300+. I

Yesterday I found myself deep into a discussion with one of our young people … while the rest of the group listened intently on. We were deep into the evolution versus creation debate … all the while I was thinking, “Will this young lady ultimately decide because she is satisfied
This is a relatively small sample size. I get that. But the sample size is big enough for us to draw some conclusions and ask some questions. I took this survey in a Facebook group (2500+ members) … and it can be deduced that the respondents are active enough online
It’s probably unimaginable how much time, effort and money has been spent by corporations, businesses and maybe even churches on coming up with a mission statement. Time is spent on blogs doing the same … though probably not as much as the time spent by the groups mentioned above. [caption
