If you’ve ever wondered about how to effectively market your church, what makes a good e-newsletter, or whether live streaming worship makes sense for your ngregation, then don’t miss our upcoming communications workshop! This workshop, specifically for churches in the Dakotas Conference, will be held on April 2, 2017, from 2:30pm - 7:30pm CDT, at Huron First UMC.

It will also be live-streamed to these sites:

  • Bismarck Legacy UMC

  • Brandon Celebration UMC

  • Jamestown First UMC

  • Rapid City Canyon Lake UMC (1:30pm - 6:30pm MDT)

  • West Fargo Flame of Faith UMC

  • Winner UMC

This breakthrough workshop is designed to give you tools to communicate more effectively with your congregation and community. United Methodist Communications and communicators from Minnesota and the Dakotas are teaming up to equip you with best practices, practical tips, and information that will help your church reach new people and better engage with your members through strategic and purposeful communication. We promise you will leave inspired armed with ideas and best practices to employ in your own ministry setting.

We’ll spend the first part of the afternoon focused on marketing and branding for your church—and then, we’ll deliver mini workshops on e-newsletters, social media, photography, and live streaming. The live streaming session will not only help you assess whether this technology makes sense for your church, but also how you would go about setting it up.

There will be plenty of time to ask questions and to think about how the ideas you’re hearing about can be shared and brought to life in your congregation!

The agenda for the day includes:

2:30-4:00 p.m.: Church marketing and branding

4:00-5:00 p.m.: Electronic newsletters tips and tools

5:00-6:10 p.m.: Social Media—Using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

6:10-6:30 p.m.: Taking digital photos for the web and social media

6:30-7:30 p.m.: The whys and hows of live streaming
