Welcome to Church Marketing Sucks

June 16, 2006 by

We’ve seen quite an influx in traffic the past week or so as we’ve explored church growth with our series Is Church Growth the Highway to Hell? So I thought it might help newcomers (and remind old timers) to give an overview of Church Marketing Sucks.

  • Launched in 2004, Church Marketing Sucks is a part of the non-profit Center for Church Communication. They’re our more respectable parent organization that allows us to branch out and do more.
  • Our goal is to frustrate, educate and motivate the church to communicate, with uncompromising clarity, the truth of Jesus Christ.
  • You can read more about our mission or check out the links in the left sidebar under “read this first” for a good introduction.
  • We encourage you to sign up for one of our e-mail newsletters and if you’re the RSS type we hope you’ll subscribe.
  • The Center for Church Communication offers a few more resources in addition to this blog, including the Church Marketing Lab, a church marketing review group where you can share your work and offer feedback to others, the Events Lab, a public calendar of church marketing and communications related conferences, and more.
  • If you want to support the work we’re doing, there are a number of ways you can help, including:
    • Donate cash.
    • Spread the word and tell your friends.
    • Make Amazon.com purchases through our links (we get a small referral fee).
    • Become a guest blogger.
    • Volunteer to help out (Our ‘Ways I Can Help’ e-mail list is one way we get the word out about needs—and we plan to mention a slew of upcoming needs soon).
    • And most importantly, pray. We don’t know everything, so we could use all the help we can get.

Thanks for being a part of the conversation.
