Social media represents an unprecedented platform for witness and ministry. Many people under the age of forty use social media as their exclusive source of information and communications.
New York Yearly Meeting has now run two phases of a 50-day experiment using social media ads as Quaker outreach.
Between May 12 and July 1 of 2017, six local meetings reached over 90,000 young adults.
Between August 18 and October 6 of 2017, twelve local meetings (plus Powell House retreat center) reached over 250,000 people.
I’m working now on finding ways to bring this project to Friends beyond New York Yearly Meeting. If you are interested in being notified about opportunities for your local meeting or Friends church to participate in the next steps of this project, go here.
