Social Media & Photography Team Job Descriptions

Each member of our team plays a vital role in making Keystone a warm, welcoming, and hospitable place. Our mission is to help lead people in a growing relationship with Jesus wherever they are in life through the social media content we create and the relationships we develop.

Be a friendly face behind the camera. Capture moments that show what Keystone is all about. Look for ways to capture our core values being lived out. Find or create opportunities to fulfill specific photos the content generators request. We ask that you have 10 photos edited and uploaded to the provided album within 24 hours of serving. Our photographers get to be a part of all the excitement, energy, and love that makes Keystone Church feel like home to so many while documenting and preserving memories for all. We ask our photographers to serve for 2 services a month plus any events you choose.

We have three types of Sunday service host positions. All host positions work together to create conversations, welcome online attenders, and post quotes from the service that are meaningful to you. Our admin host is the account with the orange circle picture. This host starts the chat feed, shares to groups on Facebook, posts provided links during announcements, and launch moments on the online platform. The conversation host is our primary greeter and conversation starter. This person is key to creating a fun, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere for our online community simply by chatting with people. The prayer and connection host is the account with the white circle picture. This host will be the primary person to pray with people who request private prayer chats. This host will record any prayer requests the person in the chat wants to be added for the staff or prayer team. There will be other special connection chats done periodically that this host would also be the primary person to chat with people that respond to them. We ask our hosts to serve for 2 services a month.

This is for people who love to connect with others on social media platforms! You will be part of a team of people helping to create a fun, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere for our online community simply by chatting with people. Always be looking for opportunities to start conversations in comments on Keystone posts, and share posts and what we do here at Keystone with your online community. We ask our digital hospitality team to serve 3-5 times a week or about 20-30 minutes total time per week.

Our content creators create and post engaging content, typically once a week unless otherwise planned with the coordinator. A content creator may choose to work on only one platform. For example, we have Instagram content coordinator and Instagram stories content creator positions. You will be creating the content that helps create a fun, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere for our online community. Content creators also share in the digital hospitality role by always looking for opportunities to start conversations in comments on Keystone posts, and share posts and what we do here at Keystone with your personal online community. Our content creators generally serve once a week.

Our web coordinators work with us to improve our website and app, keeping them user and guest friendly. They will work with the coordinator on special projects like Google ad grants and verified tours, reply to reviews, improve search titles on the website(SEO), and other tech tasks on an as-needed basis. We ask our web coordinators to serve 3-5 times a month.

How many times a month are you available to serve?

Social Media & Photography Team Covenant

You will play a vital role in providing quality content, creating a welcoming digital atmosphere, creating supportive content for Keystone attenders, encouragement and spiritual influence to all, and opportunity for conversation for everyone. Being a SM&P team member can be a joyful and fulfilling experience, but it also carries great responsibility.

Keystone Church operates under biblical authority and we recognize the Bible as the ultimate source for truth and wisdom.  It is important to say that we believe that God loves all people and His grace is offered to everyone, regardless of his or her current lifestyle and choices.  The criteria listed below are specifically laid out in the Scriptures as qualifications for those in positions of leadership and/or influence, not to point out a category of people that God does not love or offer His grace.  This understanding is vital in order to see the parameters rightly.

Employees and volunteers in positions of spiritual influence are expected to recognize biblical teachings in regards to lifestyle choices and are expected to:

  • Be faithful to their spouse in marriage or chaste in singleness. 

Exodus 20:14; Matthew 5:27-28; 1 Corinthians 6:18-20; 1 Thessalonians 4:3; Hebrews 13:4

  • Provide for the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual needs of their own family.

1 Timothy 5:8, Luke 11:11-13; Ephesians 6:4; Colossians 3:21

  • Be generous and willing to share.

Deuteronomy 15:7-8; Psalm 41:1-3; Proverbs 11:24-25; Proverbs 19:17; Matthew 10:42; 2 Corinthians 9:6-8; 1 Timothy 6:17-19 

  • Refrain from the excessive use of alcohol and abstain from the use of illegal drugs.

1 Corinthians 6:12; 1 Timothy 3:3

Although the prevailing cultural views and values regarding sexual expression, orientation and gender identity are changing, as a ministry and a church that remains committed to the scriptures and the doctrines of the Wesleyan Church we would ask that the individuals participating in the following lifestyles seek a non-leadership place of service within the church: 

  • Those cohabiting with someone of the opposite sex outside of marriage
  • Those participating in a homosexual relationship
  • Those who identify as transgender

Genesis 2:24; Malachi 2:13-15; Matthew 19:4-6; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Ephesians 5:25-32; Deuteronomy 5:18; Leviticus 18; Romans 1:24-32; 1 Timothy 1:9-10

Purpose of Guidelines
This policy provides parameters in order to guide church staff, team members, employees, volunteers, and church leaders when social media tools are used on behalf of Keystone Church or when Keystone becomes part of a social media dialogue.
Social Media Tips
  • Be selective! There are a variety of digital platforms available. Use the right medium for the message. For example, don’t use a Facebook post to communicate sensitive or private information.
  • Be smart! A blog, community post, or social media post is often visible to the entire public and can/will be shared by others in various ways that cannot be controlled at any level. Be extremely wise with all content posted.
  • Use grace! Always use Biblical wisdom when utilizing social media. For example, if someone has offended you, speak with them privately on the matter. Do not post offense responses publicly.
  • Ask us! In areas where this policy does not provide a direct answer for how members of our community should answer social media questions, please check with Keystone Church’s social media coordinator, or the Lead/Associate Pastors before speaking as a representative of the church. 
  Use of Social Media 
  • All of Keystone’s policies, including harassment, confidentiality, and software use apply in the extensive use of social media.
  • Team members who misuse Keystone's social media resources in ways that violate the law or other ministry policies will be asked to volunteer elsewhere.
   Guidelines
  • Employees/volunteers who are interested in representing Keystone Church must first sign a consent and application document, as well as attend a social media training class.
  • Social media postings should never disclose sensitive or confidential information unless written/email consent is obtained to share said information from the individual it concerns. This includes but is not limited to personal and/or medical information.
  • Please refrain from posting photos of individuals or identifying those individuals on Keystone Church’s social media pages without their written consent prior to posting. Verbal consent is sufficient if the individual is not being identified. Written consent can be submitted by texting “photo” to 734-944-5397 and completing the form. The members of the social media team are responsible for disabling the "tagging" feature of photos posted on the ministry's page. If the photos reference a location, that information must be deleted as well.
  • Copyright and Fair Use Laws must be respected at all times. Feel free to point or link to another individual's site, not post or blog about it like it is your own content.
  • If any posted material concerning Keystone Church seems to be illegal (e.g. child or elder abuse, etc.) team members should contact church leadership and the appropriate authorities immediately.
  • When communicating with youth via social media, team members must adhere to Keystone Church’s youth communication policy. Additionally, employees and volunteers serving in the children and youth ministries must keep their professional image in mind at all times. Online conduct, comments, behavior, etc. affects this image.
  • Team members and employees are solely responsible for the content they publish online, including content from their own social media pages. It must be absolutely clear that all views/posts do not reflect Keystone Church, but are reflective of themselves.
  • When in doubt, be positive!  Whether someone has posted something mean, rude or distasteful, take the high road at all times.
  • In the event of a crisis, contact church leadership prior to responding to any posting or comments relating to the crisis.
  Public Relations Guidelines
  • Church communications may not be used for partisan political messages or paid advertising.
  • Keystone Church has designated one or two main employees to facilitate all external communication channels on behalf of the Church. Only authorized employees such as the Pastor(s), Communications Staff and Departmental Directors may coordinate communications with members of the media on behalf of Keystone Church.
  • Always use Keystone Church’s official name and logo. These branding items must be approved prior to official use.
  Where Do These Guidelines Apply? 
  • This policy applies to all online and mobile platforms for sharing content and information, whether hosted by Keystone Church or hosted by others. "Social media" refers to social networking services, short-message services, message boards, wikis, podcasts, image/video sharing sites and other methods for sharing real-time information among users. Due to the ever-changing speed of social media, this policy applies to all new social media platforms, whether or not they are mentioned. All social media platforms are relevant and included.

What we need you to DO is critical for our ministry, but WHO you are in Christ is even more important. Your spiritual growth and health is just as important to God as the spiritual growth of the people to whom you are ministering. That means we are making a commitment to you just as much as you are making a commitment to us. We want to ensure you are trained, equipped, resourced, encouraged, and supported so that you can lead your group as best as possible. 

We commit to communicate our expectations clearly, provide you the necessary training and tools to do what we have asked, provide opportunities for you to give us feedback on your experience, and do all we can to make sure you grow as you serve.

 Here are some commitments we ask of you:

  1.   Please make every effort to attend all training and development events offered. They are for your benefit and encouragement! If you are unable to attend, all materials or a recording will be available for you to review at your earliest convenience.
  2. We ask that you schedule your serving time, each role has either a set or a flexible schedule. We ask that you plan that time into your week/month regularly, your commitment can make all the difference in someone’s life.
  3. If you are unable to fulfill your role on a Sunday or at an event you are scheduled for (due to illness or schedule conflict) please contact the social media coordinator to let them know as soon as possible. Never feel you need to show up when ill.
  4.   We highly recommend participation in a community group at Keystone Church along with serving.
  5.   As difficult theological questions or issues arise online, please feel free to contact the social media coordinator or one of the pastors for help. We don’t expect you to be a Biblical expert—that’s what we have Pastors for—so don’t hesitate to give them a call.

By signing below, you affirm that you meet the criteria above and commit to the covenant and guidelines.
