How to use Facebook to meet and inspire people as a Church Planter

Podcast IconChurch Planting is tough…let’s just be honest here. It takes a special person and calling for someone to go plant a church…especially in a city you don’t know very well. Joel Pazmino has that calling as he is getting ready to launch a church in Washington, DC.

One of the ways that Joel is becoming apart of the community in Columbia Heights is through his use of social media…particularly Facebook.  That is why, in today’s episode Tom and Joel talk about:

  • How he was called into ministry and Church Planting
  • How he is using social media, particularly Facebook, to build relationships
  • How he is specifically using Facebook to become apart of the community and inspire others.

It has been great having Joel apart of New Life for the past year and I know that he would love to connect with other Church planters to process ministry. So, connect with Joel! You can find him on Twitter here ( and you can learn more about his Church Plant, Columbia Heights Project here (
