Frequently Asked Questions
Why is it called “Courageous Storytellers”?
At the heart of church communication is storytelling. It’s telling the story of what God is doing at your church, telling the story of how attending an event can change someone’s life, telling your senior pastor the story of how using a particular communications tool can transform the church, etc. For churches to fulfill their mission, we need church communicators to step up, remove barriers, and tell their God-story.
Telling this story requires a great deal of courage. Courage to face frustration and courage to ask the right questions. Courage to try new things and courage to embrace the sacred.
We want to help you in your struggle. We want to equip you in living out your calling. We want to push you to become a better church communicator. We want you to excel as a courageous storyteller.
The resources in this membership site are focused on you. Sure, they’re designed to help your church, but we accomplish that by resourcing you. When a church communicator wins, we win.
What’s included in membership?
The $299/year (or $29/month) membership includes webinars and trainings, templates, documents, social media images, stock photos, and discounts on products and services. Every month we offer new resources loosely based on a relevant theme (volunteers, Christmas, social media, websites, systems, etc.). When you subscribe, you get access to this month’s resource pack, plus everything we’ve ever created. The longer you are a member, the more resources you’ll have access to.
Church Marketing Sucks is free. Why are you charging for this resource?
The Center for Church Communication is a non-profit that brings you products such as Church Marketing Sucks, Certification Lab, Creative Missions, a host of books, and now Courageous Storytellers. Many of the resources we offer are provided for free and paid for by sponsorships and advertisers. Some resources require a little extra to produce.
By charging a small fee for membership, we are able to make Courageous Storytellers sustainable and provide you with resources well into the future.
Each month is worth $299 on its own. When you consider that $299 is the yearly fee, the Courageous Storytellers membership site is quite a deal. If you’re not quite ready to commit $299, you can choose to pay by the month for only $29/month.
Again, we are a non-profit so our goal isn’t to make money. Our goal is to provide you with ongoing solutions and help you become a courageous storyteller.
Can I pay by the month?
Yes! You can choose to pay by the month for only $29. However, the yearly price is a better deal—you save $49. Either way, you can choose to cancel at anytime…no long-term commitments.
How do the discounts work?
When you purchase your membership, you gain access to a page listing all of our discount partners and the instructions for obtaining each discount. Discounts range from free shipping to a percentage off of products and services. Some discount partners offer exclusive perks to Courageous Storytellers members that are not available to the general public.
Membership also comes with early access and additional discounts to many of the Center for Church Communication’s live events and products (books, etc.). Details about these discounts are added to the discounts page as events are scheduled and products are released.
We are continually working to get our members more discounts and are routinely adding new deals, so check the discounts page often!
How do the book downloads work?
Many of the Center for Church Communication’s books are available for download in PDF format as part of membership. Once you purchase your membership, you can access the books page where you can download all the books you want.
How do the social images work?
Each month, we offer a collection of social media images in both square and landscape formats, ready to post directly to your social accounts
How do the documents & templates work?
Based on the monthly theme, we offer a variety of ready-to-use, plug-and-play documents and templates you can use for your ministry. These resources can save you a ton of time and brain power. We’ll have sample job descriptions, code for your website, manuals and other tools. Access to these documents and templates alone is worth the price of membership!
