The Pentecostal Church of God possesses its own unique social media accounts and handle (@wearepcg
). Since we are a global church with a global mission, we attempt to share stories and images of the things that are taking place around the world. These posts highlight people in other nations, missionaries and leaders at home and abroad, and the churches and ministries that are impacting eternity. These accounts are managed by the communications team at the International Mission Center in Bedford, Texas. In addition, each PCG missions and ministry department also possesses its own social media account, managed by their own creative teams. PCG churches and districts, both in the United States and around the world, manage their own social media accounts,
and the content produced reflects the events occurring in their specific local contexts. For those who bear “Pentecostal Church of God” in their name and are seeking guidance on creating new accounts, an example of a recommended social media handle would be as follows: @pcgjoplin
(for a local church) or @pcgflorida
(for a district). In addition, when considering a profile picture, try using the PCG flame logo mark (without any additional text).
When it comes to the social media platforms themselves, each has its pros and cons. However, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube seem to be the most popular with the broadest reach, so churches are encouraged to emphasize these three. If opportunity and time allows, churches could also consider offering more focused efforts to platforms like LinkedIn to reach professionals or Snapchat and TikTok to reach younger audiences.
