I don’t just rant and rave about church communications.
I founded a ministry, Effective Church Communications whose purpose is to help churches create communications that will enable them to fully fulfill the Great Commission. Fully fulfilling the Great Commission means helping people come to know Jesus as Savior and then growing into a mature, reproducing disciple.
To do that takes a lot of communications. Especially in our post-Christian world, we need to clearly define what it means to be a Christian and what is expected of you. Lots of communications using every available channel, both in print and digital are needed to grow unchurched people into fully devoted followers of Jesus.
To help church communicators create all the communications they need to do that, I’ve created a membership based website: www.effectivechurchcom.com. It has hundreds of articles, on-demand training webinars, articles, templates, examples and all sorts of materials designed to make church communicators more effective.
It is very different from this site. It is practical, nuts and bolts, specific skills you can apply in church communications work.
The site is supported by membership fees. It takes no advertising, nor does it take part in any affiliate programs so that any training, software recommendations remain free of monetary temptations or ties. Membership is very reasonable: $9.99 a month or $99 a year and it is one of the best ongoing investments you can make for yourself as a church communicator and for your church.

Church communications demands a huge array of skills to do it well and my goal on that site is to offer the needed training by focusing on what real folks in churches need, people who haven’t gone to design school, don’t have fancy equipment and have to make the bulletin look good between answering the phone and handling the daily crisis of the church office.
I didn’t want to put opinion pieces on that site and distract from the practical work that needs to be done, but I do have very strong opinions and so they are on this site.
