Although it’s difficult to imagine life B.F. — “before Facebook”—it’s helpful to remember how new social media is. Facebook launched in 2004, YouTube in 2005, Twitter in 2006, Instagram in 2010, and Snapchat in 2011. Despite the fact that these media are recent, they have revolutionized the way we communicate.

In this episode of the Influence Podcast, senior editor George P. Wood talks with Mark Forrester about how the church can leverage social media for the sake of the gospel. Mark is senior director of public relations and communications for the General Council of the Assemblies of God. He is also editor of Trending Up: Social Media Strategies for Today’s Church, available at MyHealthyChurch.com.

The Azusa Street Revival began on April 9, 1906, in a prayer meeting on N. Bonnie Brae Street in Los Angeles, California. Soon, crowds grew in response to the dramatic outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and a congregation formed on Azusa Street, with William J. Seymour as its pastor. While other Pentecostal revivals were taking place throughout the U.S. and the world, Azusa Street became the most significance one.

In this episode of the Influence Podcast, Influence magazine executive editor George P. Wood talks with the nation’s foremost historian of Azusa Street about the history and significance of this revival. Prof. Cecil M. Robeck Jr. — “Mel to his friends” —is senior professor of church history and ecumenics at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, California. A credentialed Assemblies of God minister for 47 years, he is the author of The Azusa Street Mission and Revival, as well as the editor of the new Azusa Street Series of books from Gospel Publishing House.

Prof. Robeck has also put together a self-guided tour of Pentecostal landmarks in the Los Angeles area that you can download here.

Stories have a unique ability to capture people’s imagination and move them to action. The Bible itself is filled with well-crafted narratives that tell the history of God’s dealings with people. And Jesus is the master storyteller. He used parables to proclaim the gospel and invite listeners to respond with repentance and faith.

Strangely, many churches don’t use stories to reach others. In this podcast, Influence magazine senior editor John Davidson talks to Jerit Abart and Trey Reynolds of BoldFlame Creative about how to embrace the art of storytelling. They pay special attention to the use of video components in sermons, the problem of limited budgets, and the importance of personal testimonies.
