Here is a slideshare presentation on why you should use it:
SlideShare 101

On this site you can:

  • Upload presentations publicly or privately
  • Download presentations on any topic that others have posted
  • Embed on blogs, websites, company intranets
  • Share on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn
  • Slidecast: sync mp3 audio with slides to create a webinar
  • Embed YouTube videos inside SlideShare presentations

Slideshare is great for pastors wanting to teach their congregation, bible study leaders wanting to share documents with their study groups, and faith-based organizations.

One faith based organization that I think could really benefit from Slideshare is The Navigators. Each navigator mentor builds packages for people. A package is a short, simple lesson on a selected topic from the Word. A package can include scripture, personal testimonies, outside articles and books on the topic. An example of a package topic is “How to have a quite time.” Every navigator creates his or her own packages over the course of their ministry and ends up with a valuable set of resources. Slideshare is the perfect medium for sharing those resources with other believers. Navigators could upload their packages onto Slideshare in an organized way and then share them with other mentors.

Can you think of another way Slideshare could be used for faith-based organizations?
