The Juicys Fifth Anniversary

The Juicys Fifth Anniversary

Posted August 4, 2015 by Jerod Clark

The Juicys are back and we’re celebrating our fifth year of rewarding communications awesomeness.

It started as a simple idea. Communications and marketing are some of the most under appreciated roles in many churches. Because of that, we wanted to recognize the good work being done and reward creative churches with a grant to jumpstart their next project.

While we felt the cause was important, we never really expected The Juicys to last this long. Even more surprising, we never imagined we would have awarded more than $20,000 in grants during that time.

If you’re new to Church Juice, or just need a refresh, here’s how The Juicys work.

We will be awarding multiple $2000 grants, with the likelihood of some smaller runner-up grants, for churches that have great vision for effectively using communications tools to reach their congregations and surrounding communities. We’re looking for any sort of communications project.  It could be a revamped website, a complete rebranding, great use of social media, a new overall communications plan, an outreach campaign or something so cool it’s not in this list.

Once all the entries are received, we’ll separate them based on church size. In the past, we labeled groups as small or big churches. This year, we’ll wait on the titles until we receive all the applications. This gives some flexibility in grouping churches in size ranges that make it easier to fairly compare congregations against their peers. 

The application process is pretty simple.  Go to the The Juicys page and answer a handful of questions. We want to know what you’ve done and what you want to do in the future.  Then we’ll have a panel of smart communication people look over the applications and pick their favorites.

At Church Juice, we believe in the power of the local church.  We also hold education as a high value.  We’ll share the stories of the churches that get grants as a way to inspire and guide other congregations who are looking to do similar kinds of projects.  We are all in this together.

Don’t be modest. Get excited about the work you’ve done to build God’s Kingdom. If you know of other churches doing innovative things, share this with them, too.

If you still have some questions, or want to see some of the past winners, head to The Juicys section. The application deadline is Wednesday, September 30.
