The Communications and Evangelism Committee strives to live up to our diocese’s stated commitments to transparency and hospitality. We believe that communications is a ministry and that in all forms it is evangelism. It is this belief that undergirds our work.

The committee works to improve diocesan communications, both print and digital. We work to develop and use digital tools to present the visual face and electronic voice that the diocese presents to the public. Web sites, Facebook pages, and postings on YouTube, Twitter, and Pinterest are a few of the tools we employ. We want to encourage and help churches and ministries and leaders in our diocese better use these tools as well. With digital tools, it’s easier spread the Good News when we’re not at church on Sunday- we can reach people where they are.

We meet on an as-needed basis, and sometimes via WebEx. If you have an interest in communications, social media, website development, graphic design, photography, print communications, or marketing, or if you’re a geek looking for a likely place to contribute, contact the Director of Communication.
