Every business or organization has its weaknesses and shortcomings, and so do our churches. Like any other problem, there are solutions. First, we have to address the church’s weaknesses regarding their communication skills. The church is an organization with the purpose and objective of spreading the Lords’ word and showing the love of Christ. To do that, the Church must have effective communication skills.
Here are some common weaknesses in communicating.
Poor Communication Processes
The Church has been present for hundreds of years. We must constantly be innovating our channels of communication, as well as how we communicate. Don’t rely on obsolete forms of communications and out of date systems when the digital world is constantly evolving and providing us with the best the tech world has to offer.
Social Media Platforms
We have to admit, the fact that some organizations are not open to using technology as a tool. Not all churches have social media accounts, and this has posed a problem. If used properly, social media can be very beneficial for a church, especially when it comes to communication. Social media improves communication and understanding between people. It is like an invisible thread connecting people. This thread is helpful for the communication of the church. Sadly, an organization such as the church is not open to adapting to the advancement of technology.
Lack of Preparation
Even though it is not always promised, preparation often prevents any kind of major catastrophes. A pastor will be able to deliver a sermon more effectively if he is prepared. They can prepare in many different ways, such as practicing for a sermon, writing down your main points, and doing enough research to make your sermon heartfelt.
