How to Put a Church on Facebook

I have two primary roles at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa: content curation for calvarychapel.com and social media strategies. 

On the Social Media side of things I’m constantly running into Calvary Chapels that want to have their church on Facebook, but are creating a profile rather than a page. This is a violation of Facebook policy, and a self-defeating use of the platform. Click here to read Facebook’s policy about profiles. 

A personal profile is intended for individuals. A public page is intended for an organization. If you want to create a page for your church you can click here. If you need some good examples of public Facebook pages check out these two.  

I’ve been invited to give a workshop on Social Media at the Senior Pastor’s Conference this Summer. I’m excited to help as many Calvary Chapels as possible use these tools to extend the ministry.
