There are three ways your church can have awesome digital media:
Most churches don't have any of those three. My church doesn't, either.
Yet my church still puts out great content on social media and in our church service. How? Read on to learn about this AMAZING resource that can take your media to the next level.
Why is media important? We live in a digital age. How your church presents itself digitally makes a big difference in both building a cohesive group identity for your congregation and building a public perception within your local community.
All this means that bad looking media can do real harm. If the media you're using to communicate with your members and community looks bad, it can actually hamper your ability to communicate important information.
What do I mean? Check the church bulletin below 👇
Did that document do a good job getting anything across? Do you remember any of the prayer requests? Can you identify a call to action? Did you enjoy looking it over?
Probably not. This is why having top-notch media can make a difference. This applies to your bulletins, social media posts, signage, videos, and anything else your church uses to spread the Gospel or share important info.
You didn't get into ministry to be a graphic designer. Your ministry training was focused on how to love others and spread the Gospel, not how to make professional visual media!
What if I told you that you don't have to be a graphic designer to create amazing media for your church? And what if I told you that creating great-looking media can be easy and FREE? 😁
