Last month we released the new ebook series Getting Started in Church Communication. It’s a series of three ebooks that are available separately or collected into a handy 3-in-1 volume (which saves you $2). The ebooks cover the basics of launching or redesigning a website for your church, everything you need to know about writing copy, and how to land a job and get started as a new church communicator.
