Thanks to the Synod of Lakes and Prairies for sharing this Great Idea!

And thanks to Rev. Bethany Peerbolte for creating a TikTok presence others can emulate!

Rev. Peerbolte says she was not hugely aware of TikTok until families and youth in her congregation started talking about ‘Christian’ posts on it early in the pandemic. When she started paying attention to those posts, she was ‘appalled’. And decided to be a voice of more gracious and loving Christianity.

She now has 294,000 followers and has received 5.3 million likes. And all it took was a little ingenuity and video shorts.

View and hear her story here.
