When I was an intern at my church, I read every book and blog I could find about church communication. I have a degree in mass communication and marketing, but that doesn’t mean that transferred into church communication. Today I want to take time to recognize leaders who shared their resources and knowledge to help people like me who were just getting started.
Here are five leaders I’ve learned from.
1. Tim Peters
Tim writes very practical articles about how to develop a communication strategy and simplify your communication systems. Plus, he recently came out with Sayge Resources if you’re looking for more church communication goodness. Website // Twitter
2. Kem Meyer // Less Clutter Less Noise
Less Clutter Less Noise is an essential read if you want to learn about church communication. It reads like a collection of blog posts and you’ll fly through it. Kem’s kind of like the queen of church communication. Website // Twitter
3. Phil Bowdle
My favorite thing about Phil is that he provides actual tools and shows you how to implement the ideas he shares. Also, if you send him a question on Twitter, he’s always responsive and ready to share his knowledge with you. Website // Twitter
4. Brady Shearer // Pro Church Tools
Pro Church Tools has only been around about a year but Brady shares amazing tips and tricks for churches looking to master the basics of media. If you’re like me and not a designer but often faced with leading design for your church, you need to check it out. Website // Twitter
5. Church Marketing Sucks
Yeah I know, this technically isn’t one leader but it’s my post so I can break the rules. Church Marketing Sucks is the mac daddy of articles for everything from promotions and marketing to design and websites for the church. Website // Twitter
So there you have it! Leaders that I have learned from. Now, this isn’t an inclusive list. There’s no way I could list all the leaders I’ve learned from but these are a few who made a big impact on me.
What about you? Which church communication leader have you learned from?
