I recall being left with my hands full about one year ago, after a sudden break from a business relationship.
Though it was a very amicable split, it still left me unclear as to what I needed to do. With a loving wife, who continued to support my goals, and two boys – aged 7 months and 7 years and both home-schooled, I realized I needed to somehow power through, not to just survive financially but, in fact, do more.
No more sitting in the shadows and innovating behind the scenes. I needed to step out and finish the race, by God’s grace.
I got a glimpse of how Moses must have felt. He had been asked to stop hiding, leave his family and deliver a message. Moses believed he was not well equipped to be a messenger. Like Moses, I would silently scream out for help, but I heard a soft voice saying, “[Your] help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.” Ps 121:2
I am now fired up to share with you exactly how I went from being unsure and a bit scared, to God sending me several connects from around the US and even Australia, tripling my effectiveness and turning my God given vision into reality. A vision that is going to help churches and ministries, like yours, do more online.
Based on a recent LifeWay Research Survey, while 78% of churches have a website, only 30-40% of churches are using their websites for anything other than an electronic bulletin board! And what about the 42% that hardly keep their websites up to date!
Meet Jordan Gillman.
Together with Jordan, we have looked at the way churches communicate online, what the current best practices are and what churches and ministries should be planning for in 2016. As a result, we created a solution that allows churches to reach more visitors and better engage with current members, digitally.
Within a few days, we will discuss why these stats should be important to you.
“Why NOT to settle for just a church website!”
You will receive another blog introducing Jordan, explaining what a digital strategy means for churches, as well as WHY it is the single most important audit you should take in 2016.
