Featured Member of the Week: Marcy Carrico

What’s your name?

Marcy Carrico

Where do you serve, what is your title and how long have you served there?

The Church @ Clayton Crossings. Executive Assistant, 18 months

How would you describe your job to someone who doesn’t go to church?

I get to assist our Lead Pastor with connections and leadership meetings, I also get to help him with managing our communications assets including the web site, social media, print media, and announcement slides. I also get to play a part in the assimilation process.

What were some of the things that you experienced that shaped the way you approach your work?

There have been times where I’ve been the one who fell through the cracks. When one of my kids started a new school, I felt like it was difficult to assimilate. I don’t want people to have those same feelings coming into the church.

What’s the one thing you wish people knew about your job?

That I lose sleep over our people and their ministries. It’s not just a job, it’s a ministry.

What is the one tool for your job that you can’t live without and why?

WiFi. Internet access. 🙂 Currently, I have decided I can’t live without a Church Communications premium membership and SundaySocial.tv. Those have been lifesavers. I also really cannot live without the friends I’ve made through Church Communications.

What is the biggest mistake that you see churches making when it comes to communications and marketing?

Overcommunicating. If everything is important, nothing is important. Not using targeted lists.

Who is someone that you look up to in the church communications world?

Can I list them all…lol? Katrina McMillan, Jeanette Yates, Katie Allred, Barbara Carneiro, Meghan Howard, Seth Muse, Justin Dean, Greg Atkinson, Rob Laughter, and of course, John Sanders.
