Nov. 5, 2013 (Los Angeles) – While church communicators struggle with the tools of the 21st century, there’s comfort in knowing they’re not alone. There are heroes who have walked this path before. Revolutionaries, rebels and reformers who can serve as examples for today’s church communicators.
That inspiration, encouragement and challenge is now available in an ebook. The Center for Church Communication (CFCC) and its flagship blog, Church Marketing Sucks, announce the launch of their latest ebook, Church Communication Heroes Volume 1: Lessons From Those Who Have Gone Before.
“Church communicators need heroes,” says CFCC board president David Uribe. “Working in a church can be lonely, difficult work. But we’re not the first ones to share the greatest story ever told, and there’s power in hearing those stories.”
Church Communication Heroes Volume 1 explores the stories of 15 heroes. There are familiar names that maybe weren’t considered communication mentors such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Joan of Arc. There are also lesser known saints such as Athanasius of Alexandria whose words are repeated 1,600 years after his death, and Pauli Murray, the poet, lawyer and priest who broke barriers decades before her time.
Founded in 2004, the Center for Church Communication is a firebrand of church communicators, sparking churches to communicate the gospel clearly, effectively and without compromise. The organization’s most visible project is Church Marketing Sucks, the church communications blog with coverage in the Wall Street Journal, Advertising Age, How Magazine, The Boston Herald and more. CFCC has previously published the highly successful Outspoken: Conversations on Church Communication and Dangerous: A Go-to Guide for Church Communication.
