The Church Marketers Book Club

Do you ever find yourself thinking, “I wish I knew more about…”, then shrugging your shoulders because you’ll never have time to learn?

Are you tired of having to make uninformed decisions whenever a crisis arises?

Do you wish you felt more equipped to handle the challenges that inevitably arise as you communicate within a church?

The struggle is real.  Responsibilities, emergencies, and the last-minute chaos of everyday life can make finding time to learn and grow difficult.  But when we aren’t taking the time to learn, those challenges become even harder to navigate.

That’s why I love the Church Marketing University Book Club.  It forces me to sit down at least quarterly and learn something that will make my life better- whether that’s improving communications with no budget (Thanks, Less Chaos, Less Noise!) or employing strategies for actually treating the digital world like a mission field (Thanks, From Social Media to Social Ministry!).  Plus, after reading, I get to discuss what I’ve read with some pretty cool people inside the Church Marketers Facebook Group.

How to Join the Book Club

If this sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, joining is pretty simple!

  1. Make sure you’re part of the Church Marketers Facebook Group so that you can connect with fellow book club participants AND discuss the book ahead of our meetings!
  2. Read the book!  Our next read is How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge by Clay Scroggins.
  3. Fill out this form if you want to be in the loop about what we’re reading each quarter.

That’s it!  Really.  You don’t have to be a Church Marketing University pupil to participate.  As long as you love Jesus, church marketing/communications,  AND reading, you’ll fit right in.

So if you’re ready to learn alongside a fabulous group of church leaders and communicators, we’d love to have you in the Church Marketing University Book Club!
