Churches Are Paying Attention To Communications As A Discipline

It is encouraging when I see ministries recognizing that communications is a function that really needs some dedicated attention from a staffing point of view.

Crossroads Community Church in Vancouver, Washington right now is looking for a Communications Manager to help engage with both their internal and external audiences.

I first heard of this position from Jason Ritchie, the worship pastor over at Crossroads — and it was refreshing to see that they are looking for someone that will be hands on regarding the communications flow through all their publications including email, web, and social media outlets.

But just because this ministry is of a pretty good size doesn’t mean your ministry can’t also focus on video, web, and graphics on an appropriately relevant scale. One of the biggest issues with organizations serving communities is the amount and type of communications that is made available in a timely manner. If you pay attention to clear and appropriate levels of communication with your people it will go a long way to build up a supporter base that are willing to commit and even sacrifice on behalf of the vision of the ministry.

Having a staff member who’s sole responsibility is to coordinate, create and disseminate messaging in creative ways is an imperative that is lost on many churches today. I hope you can see the need for such a team member within your own ministry.

By the way, if you or someone you know might be appropriate for this opportunity, take a look at this JOB POSTING LINK on Crossroads’ website.
