Tips + Best Practices

Updated by Caleb Lenehan

5 Unique Ways to Use Posts

  1. Share a prayer. Looking for a practical way to pastor your congregation throughout the week? Write out a prayer, send it through Posts, and encourage people to “like” the Post after they have prayed.
  2. Write a devotional. What better way to pastor your congregation daily than to share a short devotional or encouragement from God? With Posts you have the ability to write content that your church members can see in the App.
  3. Link to YouVersion Events. Are you a faithful user of YV Events? Now you can link to your weekly Events. Not only will this send out a push notification to your church, you will also now have data within Insights to view how many people are opening that Post to navigate to Events. (Pro-tip: you can also link to your worship service on Church Online Platform!)
  4. Add in your own message notes. Looking for a simple, streamlined digital bulletin? Now you can add your own message notes, key takeaways, and other points in a Post for your congregation to follow along.
  5. Promote an event. Upcoming Christmas experiences? Unique service times? Special serving opportunity? All can be shared through Posts. Take it one step further and link to a sign up form right there in the Post!
Bonus Tip: Help your community pass Posts along! Encourage your congregation to click the "Share" icon in the top right corner of a Post to encourage a friend, pray for a neighbor, or invite someone to church that weekend.
