Seminar covers responsible use of social media for ministry and nonprofits

MTSO Educational Technology Coordinator Shannon Harper will lead a seminar, "Mindful Social Media Usage and Methods for Ministry and Nonprofits,” at 1 p.m. March 30 in Gault Hall Room 145 at MTSO, 3081 Columbus Pike in Delaware.

The seminar will include both on-site and Internet-based options for participation. To participate online, visit MTSO's Livestream page. Those who have joined Livestream and logged in will have an opportunity to contribute questions in real time via Livestream's chat function.

Social media has been a catalyst for social change for over a decade and has become an everyday tool for many people in ministry and nonprofit agencies. While the basics of social media usage can be found easily on a variety of online platforms, its responsible use is not discussed as widely. Harper’s seminar will help ministerial and nonprofit leaders to reach people in the “E-Streets” where they gather in an effective and healthy way.

Harper holds a bachelor's degree from DeVry University and a Master of Arts in Practical Theology degree from MTSO.

This seminar is offered by the Theological Commons at MTSO, which promotes the sharing of knowledge and experience between students, faculty, clergy and the public for the benefit of all participants and those they serve.

Methodist Theological School in Ohio provides theological education and leadership in pursuit of a just and sustainable world. In addition to the Master of Divinity degree, the school offers master’s degrees in counseling, theological studies and practical theology, along with a Doctor of Ministry degree.
