LIVE EVENT | NASHVILLE, TN | 09.22.22


We know you want to find a community of people who understand the demands of being a church communicator.

It’s tough to navigate work culture, constant creativity, and stay motivated while remembering the true purpose of your calling as you serve the Church.

It shouldn’t be so hard to find other people that get it.
