Our Next Step Forward

Posted February 27, 2017 by Robin Basselin

“Life is full of transitions.” These are the wise words that former Church Juice producer, Jerod Clark, left us with 6 months ago as he stepped away from his role at Church Juice. Since that time, Church Juice has continued-on, primarily by rereleasing “best from archive” content peppered with an occasional new article. As fellow professional communicators, we all know that this status quo approach to communication is far from ideal. That’s why we’re excited to announce another Church Juice transition on the horizon.

Over the past few months, Church Juice has reached out to a number of informed church communicators and knowledgeable techies with the goal of forming a group of experienced contributors to lead Church Juice into it’s next phase of ministry. With this new pool of talent, we hope to be able to bring you expert answers on a wider array of church communications questions.

And that’s where you come in! We’d like your help driving the topics we tackle here at Church Juice. We want to know what aspects of church communications you find most overwhelming.

  • Does reviewing what seems like endless website platform options cause your eyes to glaze over?
  • Do you constantly wonder how to build a more effective e-mail strategy to engage new members?
  • Are you longing to know how you can better leverage social media to do even more effective ministry?

Chances are your greatest needs aren’t even on this list. That’s why we’d like you to take this brief survey to help us understand better how we at Church Juice can continue to help you further energize your church communications in the days, weeks, and years to come!
