Chairperson: Melvin Wayne Abraham
The Communications Ministry reaches the congregation and our community through media in order to inspire, inform and invite participation in the life, mission, and purposes of First Baptist Church through worship projection, social networking, public relations and other special projects.
The Communications Ministry uses the following strategy for execution:
Innovation – presenting in a fresh way
Integration – using all the media means at our disposal together in an effective way
Involvement – coaching the Pastor and church members on how to effectively communicate
Inspiration – telling the stories of God at work in people's lives
This is done through the following avenues:
First Baptist is excited to use state of the art equipment to project the Praise and Worship Songs, Scriptures, Strategies For God's Mission Video and the Pastor's sermon highlights on the sanctuary screens.
The Communications Ministry works with the members and the Secretary to create and print the Sunday bulletin. To request that your event be placed in the Sunday Bulletin, all requests must be submitted to the Secretary no later than Wednesdays at 10:00 AM for the upcoming Sunday bulletin.
The Communications Ministry directs and manages the Church's social networking presence (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube,) by ensuring that pertinent and prominent information about ministry events are routinely shared and updated.
Advertising & Graphic Design
The Communications Ministry helps develop and coordinate creative projects or publicity campaigns for your events with regard to print, web & multi-media advertising. We can help with ministry campaigns, graphic designs, press releases, videos, posters, flyers, banners, mail-outs, pamphlets, yard signs, newspaper ads, etc. Be sure and give us as much time as possible to help you with your events.
If you have an upcoming event, don't forget to get the word out. The Communications Ministry is here to serve you and publicize all your church events. We suggest you start communicating with us the moment you start talking about it in your ministry teams. Once it goes on the church calendar... come talk to us! On large projects and all-church events you need to start working with us 6 months out from your event date if possible. On smaller projects and events we like to start promoting 6 weeks out from your event date. When we start planning your event it's good to think about placement. Who is your audience? Is this a Church-wide only event or a Community-wide event? If it is only church-wide we'll place it in the church news, bulletin (space permitting), and website. If it's for the community and funding is available, we'll also assist you in adding it to newspapers, press releases, ads, community boards and newsletters, etc. Therefore, let us know the information as soon as you plan your event... even if it's down the road. If you have any questions about a particular job, or how it should be done, please consult with us.
If you would like to help the Church communicate, contact us to volunteer today! We are always looking for new and innovative ideas.
