Personal Interaction with a Connected Community
Through Rick Renner’s Facebook author page, he communicates daily with his ever-growing English-speaking audience through posts and video clips. He also conducts periodic live webcasts on rennerhomegroup.com and Facebook for both general audiences and for ministers specifically. During these live webcasts that reach people all over the world, the audience can post questions and comments as Rick shares scriptural and historical insights. This page has become a very successful avenue of ministry for Rick. Twitter has also become an effective ministry platform for Rick to a growing group of followers (twitter.com/rennerrick). Another vital resource available is the RENNER Ministry blog. Rick’s blog provides in-depth teaching /daily devotionals from Sparkling Gems From the Greek, or you can search by topic in the archives.
In addition to American Facebook, Rick also communicates with a huge and growing Russian-speaking family through Russian Facebook and two other Russian social networks, VKontakte and Odnoklassniki. Through these Russian social-media venues, many audio, video, and written materials are offered free of charge. Every request posted via one of our social networks receives personal attention, and every prayer request is taken before the Lord.
Thousands of people are interacting with Rick each week through social networks to receive prayer, encouragement, and new insights from the Word. Placing confidence in the friend they’ve found in Rick Renner via social media, people have opened their hearts to share their personal failures, marriage and family problems, relationship conflicts, and numerous other issues in order to receive prayer help. Many have found in Rick a pastor and friend who offers them biblical wisdom and prayer without judgment.
Denise Renner also has a public Facebook page in the U.S. (www.facebook/rennerdenise). She communicates regularly with her followers, encouraging them from the Scriptures and sharing photos of her family as well as of ministry events.
