Church communications transition plan?

Does your church have one?

Planning the Transition

By Kevin D. Hendricks in Church Marketing Sucks

Let’s talk about a church communication issue that’s incredibly unsexy, unexciting and completely not controversial. Yet it happens all the time.

The transition.

What happens when your web volunteer gets burned out and quits?

What happens when your social media person moves on?

What do you do when you fire the assistant, it doesn’t go well and you realize they have the password to the Facebook page?

What do you do when your go-to copy person switches churches?

Does your church have a plan in place for any of these transitions? One thing churches rarely plan for is the transition. The one thing you can be sure will happen is the transition. So get it together now and come up with a transition plan. You’ll need it sooner than you think.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
