Can I have a promotion card designed and printed by tomorrow? Could we reserve the next three weekend announcements for our event? Why is our Facebook and website not updated? Are you sure need to invest budget dollars in a new website?

“Church communications is one of the most challenging and rewarding roles in ministry.”

I currently work as a part-time Communications Director, a consultant and a communication advocate creating training resources. I understand the challenges of church communications. The last minute communication requests … the chaos of ministries communicating in silos … the lack of support and budget dollars … the constant race to understand and use new technology.

Insert (challenge here).

These challenges inspired me to develop a church communication training tool to help churches communicate better. The past four years I spent each working hour studying growing churches, interviewing key church leaders, speaking at creative conferences and working for and with local churches. I was on a ‘mission’ to learn how the church can communicate better to engage members and reach local communities.

After all of the research, I contend churches have two options -

  1. Cluttered and chaotic communications - Lack of strategy and systems.
  2. Clear and compelling communications - Leading with strategy and systems.

You have options. I advocate option #2. Through all of the research and personal learnings I developed the Communication Guide. I guarantee the Guide will help your church use online and offline communication tools effectively in a simple and budget friendly manner.

A simple video from Super Bowl 2014 reminding us the power of technology. How will your church embrace and use technology to reach people?

Authenticity wins. Always. In relationships. In communications. Everybody appreciates authenticity. Radio Shack demonstrated authenticity brilliantly with a honest video during Super Bowl 48. Frankly I am not a fan of Radio Shack. Just weeks ago while walking around the shopping mall with my family I commented to my wife, “How in the world is Radio […]

5Ways

I am excited to share with you a video training series I have worked on for the past year.  The concepts and actionable strategies in this new video series will CHANGE your approach to communications (and church) forever.

Here’s what I mean… Over the past year, I researched, surveyed and worked with hundreds of churches and pastors in the area of church communication.

My goal was to observe effective churches, learn how they use communications to grow and sustain growth, and then share what I learned with you.

After hours of study, I discovered that each growing and healthy church strategically leveraged communications in the same 5 ways.

Today, I’m releasing the first video in this new, completely free, 4-part video training series. The entire series unpacks the 5 common ways growing churches use communications.

I’m convinced you’ll learn a ton to help grow your church in these helpful videos. Simply fill out the below form to watch video #1 -
