2017’s Most Popular Church Juice Articles

Posted December 21, 2017 by Bryan Haley

Twenty seventeen held lots of changes for the ministry of Church Juice. After almost a year without a project lead, I started as Church Juice’s new producer in late July, and it’s been a whirlwind six months since then (for which I am grateful). Church Juice has relaunched producing all-new content, led training seminars and workshops, created a closed Facebook Group to build community among church communicators like you, held our first webinar, and so much more. It’s been a great year, but our ministry is certainly looking forward to 2018, and we hope you are as well. But even as we look forward, I thought it also fitting to take a moment to look back at 2017—here are some of this year’s most visited articles.

Consistency in Program Logos

A throwback article from 2012, Church Juice’s founding producer, Jerod Clark, talks about the Microsoft logo update—which affected it’s broad array of programs—and how the new look gave consistency across the business. In the Church, we have a tendency to want to give every program and ministry a unique look. But in doing so, we fail to reinforce the main brand (the church).
