Let's Network!

It would be hard to over-estimate the role and influence of the 21st-century phenomenon known as Social Networking. Smartphone, tablet and desktop computers, and laptops are now used by millions of people around the world to network, inform, promote, connect, recruit, and who knows what else, sometimes for good and sometimes for evil.

Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Google+, and Instagram have become household words, along with scores of other networking options. GPTS is no stranger to many of these networks.

On Facebook, we have public seminary page, an alumni page (closed group), and a prospective student page (closed group). We have a Twitter account: @GPTSeminary. And we are the largest user of SermonAudio's network, where you will find hundreds of sermons, lectures, conference offerings, and more, both audio and video. Visit our YouTube channel for a growing number of video resources. There's also a fledgling LinkedIn account for the seminary and separate accounts for some seminary personnel.

One of the great advantages of these networks is that information can be shared widely with friends, who are then able to share with their own network of friends, and these, in turn, can share again, until a wide web of shared information spreads through the country and world. "Like" us, "follow" us or otherwise connect with us through these networks with resources to share.

We encourage you to help us spread the word by sharing articles from this e-newsletter and posts on our networking pages that you find informative, useful or otherwise worthy of circulation. To share e-newsletter articles, all you need to do is click on one of the small social media icons at the very bottom of each article, or simply copy the article's web address and paste into a post on Facebook or other networking media.

This will help give the seminary more widespread recognition. We desire to influence lives and recruit new students. International terrorists are using these means to spread their hatred and violence around the world. Let's employ these powerful digital networks to spread the Gospel, as many Christians are doing, and let the world know what Greenville Presbyterian Seminary is doing to bring biblical revival to the church and the nations.

We hope you will consider spreading the word!
