One of the most frequently-asked questions I get from the churches and ministries we work with is, “Do you have a social media policy example we could look at?”

Below is a dynamic list of all the social media policies and resources I can get my hands on. Thanks to my tribe for providing so many great examples I didn’t have access to. With every church and ministry we work with, this list will increase and change.
