It’s no surprise to say that we live in a digital culture. Most people use their devices regularly throughout the day and rely on them for many things.

This has introduced a range of new platforms that can help you reach more people when used correctly. Because of this, incorporating a digital strategy into your church communication plan is not just beneficial; it’s essential. 

A staggering majority of individuals searching for a new church begin their journey online, making it crucial to establish a strong digital presence.

1. Creating a Content Calendar

One of the first steps in making a digital strategy is forming a content calendar. This calendar becomes a central place for what to post on social media, what to send in emails, and what to update on your church’s website. 

Without a content calendar, your efforts can become disorganized. Spontaneous posting can lead to missed opportunities and forgotten messages. 

By organizing your content in advance, you ensure that your posts and emails are thought out and timely, and save you from the stress of last-minute preparations. 

A well-maintained content calendar helps keep your church’s digital presence consistent and engaging, allowing you to communicate the right things at the right time to the right people.

2. Leveraging Social Media

Social media platforms have benefits and negatives. When used the right way, they can be powerful tools for reaching your community and engaging with people. 

Platforms like Instagram and Facebook are perfect for inviting people to Sunday services or special events. 

Regular updates, live videos, and interactive posts can create a social presence that encourages participation and online community.

Depending on your social strategy, you can also use the platform to connect with local businesses and organizations to continue your connection with your area.

3. Utilizing YouTube

Another digital tool churches can use is YouTube. This platform is the second largest search engine in the world and allows you to share your sermons and other church events, providing a resource for new people and existing members. 

Content on YouTube can give a real sense of your church’s atmosphere and make visiting in person less intimidating. This is often one of the first places people look for a new church home.

4. Driving Traffic to Your Website

One of the goals of using social media and YouTube is to direct people to your church’s website. 

Your website should serve as a central hub where potential visitors can learn more about your church, ask questions, and find information for their first visit.

It’s important that your website is welcoming, easy to navigate, and updated regularly with relevant information. It’s also important that your website gives an accurate reflection of your church.


Effective use of digital tools is crucial to church communication today and can lead to increased awareness of your church. This helps to build a stronger community and foster relationships with new people.

By embracing digital tools and strategies, your church can reach more people and connect with the community, making the digital space a vibrant part of connecting with people.
