Where: FirstLutheran.ca

Why: To continue to expand our online presence particularly in the Kelowna community.  We recognize that a lot of people will check out our church online before they would ever visit in person.  We currently administrate a Facebook page and would like to venture further into other social media - Instagram, Snapchat, You Tube... Currently we are looking for someone with the ability and passion to lead the charge on our Social Media Ministry - to work well with others (even including other creative and technical talent as needed) and in the end put out quality and creative content that clearly communicates our mission to "inpsire people to love God and others through grace"!
