Church Community Builder recently became more aware of information privacy laws in the United Kingdom and communication laws in Canada. We’d like to take a moment to update you on what we have found and steps we have taken to better serve you.
You understand church communications isn't really about controlling a brand or a message. It's about what people hear and how that inspires them to move towards the place you want for them.
For many church leaders, attracting volunteers has always seemed to create more aggravation than opportunity. They realize that the thought of a church without volunteers is scary. Yet there often seems to be a lack of purposeful strategy in most churches to bridge the gap between those serving and those being served.
Does attending large social gatherings leave you feeling exhausted? Have you ever decided to turn down a party invitation to stay home by yourself? Does not talking for several hours at a time sound perfectly normal (and relaxing) to you? Me too! As a fellow introvert, allow me to reassure you that you’re not weird or antisocial. Solitude and quiet enable us to recharge so we can go back out into this extroverted world with some energy left in our physical and emotional tanks.
When I started working at Church Community Builder back on 2008, social media was still a mysterious (and sometimes scary) phenomenon for most church leaders. Now that we all realize it is the new norm for how our culture communicates, this has changed significantly. Pretty much every church leader I know has a presence on social media. The problem is that many still have a hard time truly understanding why. They get it in terms of ‘being there’, but they often miss it in terms of truly leveraging it. As a result, their strategies with social media aren't working.
