You need timeless strategy, inspiration, and Biblical challenges that work no matter what tech tools and channels you use, the size of your church or age of your audience. You'll get them here.

This podcast is part of the ministry of Effective Church Communications, www.effectivechurchcom.com--go there for more resources, training, and FREE templates that are ministry-effective.

A Better Way to Use Halloween for Outreach, plus Was Jesus A Zombie?
Many churches are concerned about the evils of Halloween and that's understandable, but it can be a fantastic time to energize your people for outreach and challenge people with spiritual realities. The question, Was Jesus a Zombie? isn't being irreverent, it's a honest question from a totally unchurched person and completely understandable as Zombies are the primary picture popular media has of those who return from the dead. The answer of course is a resounding "no." In addition to a thoughtful answer we've got resources you can use to in answering this question and many other Halloween outreach free templates and tools on the www.effectivechurchcom.com website.

How to not be overwhelmed with technology changes & challenges
How should you respond when you read something online that by the power of the stories or statistics shared, makes you feel that if you don’t immediately respond to the technology advertised your church will be left behind ….in reaching your world, being up-to-date, or in some other implied way that has you hit the button for a “FREE TRIAL?” We’ll answer that question in today’s Podcast as part of what I’m calling: A BETTER WAY This series of podcasts was born out of my frustration with things happening in church communications and instead of simply being snarky and ranting about these issues, I felt it would be much more honoring to the Lord to reframe them and suggest A BETTER WAY to deal with these things. In this podcast, I’ll cover two areas: 1. The source of technology fears & how to inoculate yourself against them 2. How to response to true technology changes that impact your ministry Please go to http://www.effectivechurchcom.com for show notes on this episode and other tips, training, and free templates to help you be a more effective church communicator.
