Video Feature: Putting a Friendly Face on Technology

Outstanding Young Alumna Jennifer Hanson-dePaula mixes business with pleasure daily. Experienced as a professional publicist in the music industry and tuned to the joy of helping others tell their stories, she and her husband, Marcus, own and operate a digital publicity and social media firm in Nashville. Mixtus Media helps musicians, authors, and small businesses relate to wider audiences through social media and relationship marketing. Keyed to opportunities for Christian service, the couple makes it their mission to also help churches apply social media technologies to strengthen the body of Christ.

"It's hard for people to wrap their heads around change that happens as fast as technology is advancing us," Hanson-dePaula observes. Churches can benefit from the change, but often they don't know where to begin. Mixtus Media guides church leaders in using today's technologies to engage their congregations, encourage, inspire and challenge them.

Hanson-dePaula sometimes steps out of the online world to guest lecture in Professor Veronica Ross' communication classes on the Greenville College campus. She remains in close contact with Ross and provides advice to students on internships and job opportunities.
