The manner in which we communicate, both internally and externally, is of great importance to each of our ministry settings. How we communicate lends to interpretation of who we are as church, making it vital that we have a strong grasp on how we communicate and through what channels.
Mary Smith, coordinator of synod communications, is available to consult your congregation on many matters of communication, from auditing and planning, to making recommendations and connecting you with others. Get in touch with her at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651.224.4314.
In addition to in-person consulting, the synod is developing a library of resources for use in your ministry site.
- Social Media Use & Boundaries (PDF)
- Creating a Communications Plan (PDF)
- Communications Planning Powerpoint Presentation from Tool Kit 2016 (Powerpoint)*
- Resources for Communications Planning from Tool Kit 2016 (PDF)*
*Special thanks to communications experts Trip Sullivan and Brie Trovall for developing these resources.
Communicators from churches in our synod are invited to gather regularly. These times together are an opportunity to ask questions, share resources, and network. Email Mary Smith, coordinator of synod communications, at email@example.com for more information.
