Christian Chronicle now on TikTok
As part of a new video initiative, The Christian Chronicle…
The Chronicle’s Erik Tryggestad, Bobby Ross Jr. and Audrey Jackson will be regular guests with frequent appearances by other staff members and correspondents.
“Sometimes there are some stories behind the stories about how we got to a place like Ukraine or how Bobby was able to get someone to talk to him who wouldn’t talk to any other media,” said Tryggestad, the Chronicle’s president and CEO. “There are so many little details like that that we can communicate in this forum better than what we’ve been doing before.”
The new podcast is one of multiple initiatives to continue bringing news to Churches of Christ in relevant formats. Other initiatives include interactive PDFs and short-form videos on social media, including TikTok.
The weekly podcast features episodes around 30 minutes in length, covering stories from the print edition and website while offering insight into the journalistic process and trends.
“It’s always been … a ministry where we see ourselves as truth tellers, or attempting to tell the truth.”
Topics in the pilot episode include an update on believers in Ukraine, the closure of the Lipscomb University Austin Center and why the Chronicle decided to start a podcast.
“It’s always been … a ministry where we see ourselves as truth tellers, or attempting to tell the truth,” said Bobby Ross Jr., editor-in-chief of the Christian publication.
“I think we are just trying to ask ourselves, ‘We’ve got this mission, some people still read the print edition, some people are reading us online, but are there people we are missing that would benefit from what we’re doing through a podcast?’”
