Salters joins national staff
The U.S. Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (USC) has hired its first social media coordinator. Justin Salters, Bakersfield, Calif., began work Oct. 12 from the conference’s West Coast office in Bakersfield.
As the part-time social media coordinator, Salters is responsible for launching and managing a U.S. Mennonite Brethren (USMB) social media presence on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter and developing additional Web strategies to facilitate online community among Mennonite Brethren in the U.S.
Salters is currently a student at California State University, Bakersfield, where he is majoring in political science with a minor in economics. He attends The Bridge Bible Church, an MB congregation in Bakersfield, where he serves the congregation’s young adult ministry as worship leader.
USMB leadership initiated the position of social media coordinator to better connect with current and future members of the church, both in the United States and abroad. Executive director Ed Boschman says, “Justin is broadly experienced, appropriately gifted and well suited for his assignment to get us off and running in this critical part of our communication strategy.” —USC
