Communication Audits

A communications audit is an assessment of your congregation's communication pieces (e.g., print and electronic newsletters, website, social media...). It determines what is working well, what is not, and what might work better if adjustments are made. 

Social media workshops for congregations and non-profit religious organizations

You know your congregation or organization needs to have an online presence. In fact, you already have a website and perhaps a Facebook page, a Twitter account or other social media platforms but you just do not know what to do with them or whose responsibility they are. It's probably time to regroup and get up and going online instead of dying on the vine.

We offer a variety of workshops to choose from or you can customize your own workshop to meet your spcific needs.
