Marketing & Technology
Design is so important! Getting a good designer either contracted in or in your church is vital to good design. A designer will take your words and make them beautiful, design can communicate 1000 words in a second. So getting team resourced in how to make things clean should be a priority.
Time is short and most small churches will have team working remotely, from other offices etc. Team communication is a vital part of how things get done.
Your churches website is so important, Mark Kelsey (C3 Oxford Falls) refers to the website as the new front door of your church. People will be looking at your website, quietly judging, assessing, finding out information & getting a feel for your culture. It's important that your website feels refreshing, exciting & matches the culture of your church. Make sure the design matches the culture / feeling of your church.
Planning centre is a key part of how our church runs. There are many other apps similar to PCO (planning centre online) but over the years we have found it to be the most helpful and function seamlessly.
PCO is broken up into various modules - these are the current modules we are using.
