A New Opportunity to Connect with Other Worship Leaders – an Update

We are all looking for ways to connect with other worship leaders, and last week I introduced a new opportunity to you, a Tweetchat centered on worship.

I have never done anything like this, but it is very simple and super fun.

Yesterday evening I hosted the second #worshipchat Tweetchat, and I had a blast interacting with friends across the continent.  I also made a new contact in the process.

If you are unfamiliar with Tweetchats, just think of an open air chatroom utilizing Twitter, led by a moderator, and organized using a unique hashtag.  For Twitter newbies a “hashtag” is a keyword preceded by the “#” symbol.  In this case we are using the unique hashtag #worshipchat.

Last night we talked about appreciating volunteers, and soon I plan to write a blog post digging into the comments.  After sharing ways we had felt appreciated in the past, we all agreed that the attitude and heart of a leader is the key component to making a volunteer feel valued.

So stay tuned for the blog post coming up shortly.

Our next #worshipchat Tweetchat is this coming Monday, August 13, at 8 pm EST.  Simply go to this Tweetchat room and you will see all of the comments organized.  Or you can simply send Tweets from your account, making certain to include “#worshipchat” in all of your tweets.  You can actually type “#worshipchat” into the Discover search field within Twitter and follow that way, but the nice thing about the Tweetchat room is that #worshipchat is automatically added to every tweet without you having to maunually enter it in.

In the meantime, share a brief story with us here in the comments below.

What have leaders done in the past to make you feel appreciated and valued?
