  • Is imitation effective? Pastors who appear on a mainstream channel can reach a lot of people with the Gospel, but how much will their message suffer if they need to have mass appeal for viewers?
  • What are the risks that come with celebrity pastors? The more a church relies on the personality of a single pastor, the more that church’s fate rises and falls on that pastor’s conduct. In addition, could the ministry of others be overlooked?
  • How should churches use media? Should your church send out press releases and invite reporters to your big events? Are there opportunities to use the media for good that you are overlooking?
Consider reviewing your church’s communication plan with a few staff members in order to find new opportunities.
