How to Set Up a Snapchat Account

If you want to reach the “younger generation” on social media, Snapchat is a great starting point. Sure Instagram is very popular, as well but Snapchat has a certain “it” factor that makes having an account to use for personal or, better yet, ministry use important.

But what if you don’t know anything about Snapchat? How do you even start a Snapchat account?

In this video you will see how you can create an account to use personally or for your ministry.


There are a lot of social media platforms out there that you can use for you and your ministry. Despite all the concerns about Snapchat years ago (and some still now), Snapchat is a very powerful tool that you can use.

What do you think? Do you use Snapchat for your Church or ministry? If so, share how you use it below or on social media using #ymsidekick when you post.
