This Month’s Resource Pack

April – Websites

You know the saying, “April showers, bring updated websites”… er, or something like that.

It’s SPRING! It’s time to do some spring cleaning on those websites, and we have the tools and resources to get you going.

A few quick things to highlight…

Make sure to check out the devotional from Max Lucado below. It’s 14-days designed to get you—the church communicator—ready for Easter. This is a limited-time resource and will not be available in the archives or on this page after Easter, so if you want a copy be sure to download it now.

If you’re not getting our Courageous Storytellers Insider emails, be sure to let us know. It’s how we’re going to keep you updated with the latest news from the membership site. Also, if you’re not on our general email list, join that one as well because we send out a lot of free resources to that list.

Finally, I’m excited to announce that Kelley Hartnett has come on board as our Membership Director. She’s already doing a phenomenal job leading the charge to create great resources for you guys. If there is anything you’d like to see added to the site, or any feedback about how we can improve, jump over to the contact page and leave her a message.

Let’s go get some spring cleaning done!

Chuck Scoggins
Executive Director
