Christian people usually comes to church regularly to hear the preaching of their pastor or church leader and have fellowship with some believers. But in the blog that they posted or publish they did not even mention the service that supposedly the highlight of their topic not all the members of the church can able to attend the service during Sundays.

Most church leader blogger focus on delivering their thoughts and leadership, they engage themselves in social media to convey the message to their followers and believers create a strong base which every individual or even some leaders can better analyze their own strategies to attract people. Although most of the leaders in church face new opportunities and challenges in their leadership, blogs brings together to promote their task and ministry, enhances through developing and distributing highly targeted ministry tools and resources that includes their church program, Sunday service and so on that can church can benefits.

Although your platform is a blog, facebook, twitter or any form of social media you could be alert and well knowledge before posting it into social media. Too many Christian leaders nowadays that they are keep posting something on social media in the heat of their emotions. If you are the midst of angerness, you should have break from social media for awhile to avoid any cause of problem. If not, then you have something to regret after.
