Communications is often a thankless job. Nobody knows how many hours you spend doing the work you do to make sure people know what’s going on in your organization. People usually don’t say anything to the person writing the newsletter or updating the website unless there’s a typo or their event or ministry didn’t get the mention they think it deserved.
So, on behalf of all of us at OurChurch.Com I just want to say thank you.
Thanks to all of you who do the unheralded behind the scenes work of updating websites, designing graphics, editing videos and writing copy to make your organization’s communications the best you can possibly make it.
Thanks to all of you who write blog posts and engage people on social networks in an effort to bring the hope and light of Jesus Christ to your friends and contacts online.
Thanks to all of you who help others communicate more effectively by contributing your insight in comments on this blog and sharing blog posts about communication on Facebook and Twitter.
And a special thanks to all of you who have given us the opportunity to provide you with web hosting, custom website solutions, search engine optimization and Christian advertising. You could go with a cheap, secular option but you believe as we do in working with a Christian organization that shares your beliefs, values and commitment to Christ. OurChurch.Com exists to help Christian organizations achieve their mission online. Thank you for the privilege of helping you achieve your mission online!
Please pass this along to the rarely thanked communicators you know, including those on your communications team. 🙂
