In my blog brain backup I wanted to share about tweeting for Jesus with 16,000 people at the Urbana Mission Convention this past December 27-31st. Below is a more in depth article written by Adam Jeske who lead our super social media squad:
Social Squad- ASSEMBLE!!
Tweeting For Jesus One of the other cool things was that our #U12 hashtag was trending nationally for a couple days during Urbana, we had a couple articles about using social media for the first time at Urbana, 40,000 tweets were tweeted under #U12’s hashtag, our social squad tweeted 3,000 times, and were retweeted over 6,500 times. Here are some of my favorite tweets from the week:
Death begins to work backward, it begins to break….and Jesus reverses our death into life!
“Love is a very expensive word. You cannot buy it.” -Shortie #u12
“In Christ we have found someone who is worthy of losing everything for.” -David Platt // #u12
@urbanamissions: How will you make good decisions with your money this week so that others can be blessed? #U12 #GregJao
@travis_r_may: I’m going to miss worshipping with 16,000 people from 100 countries in 7 languages, but I’m excited to go and do! #U12…
Mission is not an add-on to the Christian life. Seeking out the lost is at the very heart of God.

@kristifriday: “A deep intimacy with God creates a deep submission to God.” Ziel Machado en espanol!! #u12

@Joany_Yung: I was looking at “evangelism” books,when @AndyMineo walked by and said “evangelism, just go and do it, what about that” #u12
From our social media squad:
@jazzmen_oh: “It’s awesome to see how God is honoring our social media nerdiness.” #u12 #socialsquad
We broke twitter….or did twitter break us?
Though I came into the week as a twitter noob I was quickly converted to the power of the tweet. It was thrilling to see our social squad tweets retweeted, to interact with participants in a real-time and significant way. It was awesome to work with a team of witty, fun and thoughtful people who were tweeting for Jesus. You can follow me on twitter at @JessicaLeepFick for continued tweeted Fick wit.
social media for the Glory of God!
