JULY – LEADERSHIP
If you’re like a lot of new-ish church communicators, when you saw the theme for this month your first thought was, “Oh. That doesn’t really apply to me.” Well, I beg to differ. I don’t care what your title is or if you’re a team of one or 21. You are a leader. I mean, think of how many people you affect each and every week through your church bulletin and e-newsletter. Now add your website and social media accounts! You’re a mover and a shaker, I’m tellin’ ya.
Of course, I get why you hesitate to use the word leader. You don’t feel like a leader because it seems like you’re often just implementing what someone else tells you to do. You’re in meetings, but you’re not running the meetings. But just because you’re not floating around the top of the org chart doesn’t mean you don’t have influence—and influence is what leadership’s all about.
This month’s resources are designed to help you own your role as a communications leader in your church. I hope you find them useful and inspiring and, to be honest, a little kick-in-the-pants-ish. Even the best of leaders can use that every once in awhile.
As always, I’d love to know if we’re addressing the topics that really matter to you. If you have suggestions for future focus areas, drop me a line. It’d be great to hear from you!
