Thursday, October 9, (11 PDT / 2 EDT)
Join me and my church communication friends for a live show on Innovate 4 Jesus. I’ll be discussing where church communications is headed, along with some Certification Lab friends and show host Justin Blaney. We’ll discuss the Biblical ways to communicate the Gospel clearly, effectively, and authentically.
Can I answer questions about your specific situation? Leave them anytime on the comments at i4j.org/future or via Twitter using #I4JLIVE. I’ll be taking questions from right now until Thursday’s show. Can’t join us live? We’ll still answer your question, and record it all at i4j.org!
