Church Press Release Basics

February 21, 2006 by

The basic rule in getting media attention is to do something newsworthy. Those crazy guys at Granger Community Church know a thing or two about that. And I promise to stop talking about that.

But doing something that deserves attention doesn’t always mean you’re going to get it. And that’s when press releases can be very helpful. Dan Benson has a helpful rundown of how to do church press releases. It’s pretty basic stuff, but it can help raise the profile of your church and bring more people in.

    Kevin, in case you’re wondering, we used press releases as well with this campaign. Probably didn’t need them this time, but it certainly didn’t hurt. :-)

    The link to Dan Benson’s blog seems to be broken. Any chance you know where to find this post now?
