Nona Jones’ book: From Social Media to Social Ministry: A Guide to Digital Discipleship is a must-read for church leaders of any size who want to extend their reach by growing disciples through digital ministry. She prefaces the book with this dedication: “To everyone who has a vision for kingdom impact that is bigger than four walls can contain.” Nona is a sought-after speaker who will help us think about ways to engage and grow our churches with discipleship systems through engagement through “social ministry” (a term she coined) with social media platforms. Carey Nieuwhof reviews her book with these words:“From Social Media to Social Ministry is not only incredibly rich and deeply practical but also extremely timely. There has never been a better time to shift our thinking from social media to social ministry, and Nona leads the way.
