Corrin Bauer started her social media career as just about everyone does—by becoming an avid user of social media. The sharp turn to professional came when she was hired as Mars Hill Church’s social media manager, running the accounts for Mars Hill Church, The Resurgence, and Pastor Mark Driscoll, as well as overseeing the volunteers and staff managing the accounts for Mars Hill’s 15 church locations.
During her two and a half years working at Mars Hill she had a ton of exposure to all types of social media and watched their combined followers grow to over one million. Now Corrin works for Innovate For Jesus, a non-profit dedicated to helping pastors and ministry workers grow the church with practical ministry insights, technology, and innovations, as the platform manager and as a social media consultant. You can hear Corrin discussing social media on the unSeminary podcast and the Social Media Church podcast.
Corrin received her BA in English from the University of Washington and a certificate in editing also from UW. She lives in Seattle with her husband and baby girl, Vivian. Corrin loves Jesus, Doctor Who, tea cups, Seattle, coffee, beer, social media, the Food network and HGTV, listening to comedians and podcasts, and taking pictures with her phone.
