This workshop will gather communicators in the same space to connect and explore the concept of having a communications plan in your ministry setting. We will hear from Ashley Corbett, the Director of Communications for the Office of the Bishop, as she walks through what a communications plan might include, why it is worth your time, who should be included, and more. We will make time for you to break up into smaller groups based on your ministry context and consider what it looks like for different ministries. For example, a solo pastor doing the work of communications will likely approach it differently than a full-time communications professional would. There will be time for questions, sharing, and more.
