We get it, pastors. The proliferation of social media and mobile devices has made it difficult to tell if your phone-wielding parishioners are on YouTube or You Version. Surely most of them are paying attention to your sermon and following along on their paperless version of the Bible! Church of God Convention 2015 is your opportunity to trade places and perspectives with the person-in-the-pew. All pastors need regular opportunities to soak in the scriptures as taught by others. So bring your dog-eared classic or your Bible app—but don’t limit yourself to Bible Gateway or Bible.is. Join the conversation on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram using the official convention hashtag—#BeBold2015.
Yep, that’s right. We’re giving you permission (even encouraging you) to whip out the cell phones and tablets during convention sessions. Don’t miss out on the teaching and the worship for your phone’s sake (and remember to keep your phone silenced!) , but take a moment or two to tweet a favorite quote from one of the excellent speakers. Post a photo of the convention crowd on Instagram. Share publicly how the Spirit has moved in your heart. You’d be surprised how many of your brothers and sisters in Christ were moved in the very same way.
It’s bold. It’s interactive. It’s just another way for you to get the most out of CHOG Convention 2015.
