Effective, Consistent Communication Increases Church Attendance, Creates Loyalty and Builds Community

PHOENIX, Jan. 30 /Christian Newswire/ -- We were taught as children that the Church was its people. And in order for a church to be active and grow both numerically and spiritually, it must be fed, or “engaged.” The question then becomes, what does it mean to have an “engaged” church, and how do you get there?

The importance of communicating clearly and often cannot be overemphasized. Understandable and up-front communication increases trust between members and leaders while eliminating unnecessary confusion.

Church Business Magazine has partnered with PhoneTree to present “The Engaged Church,” a live Webinar to answer these questions, as well as explain the roles of the youth, elderly, small groups, Sunday School, leadership and more in making this dream a reality. This free event will also educate attendees about the latest communication technologies that can help you get there – plus, their function in engaging today’s congregations.

Join us for this live event on Tuesday, March 6, 2007 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET. Our speaker will be Michael Euliss, motivational teacher and director of marketing for PhoneTree.

In addition to his work with PhoneTree, Michael Euliss serves as a senior associate with the Gallagher-Westfall Group, Inc. in Indiana, providing leadership and supervisory training to hundreds of governmental, church, corporate, medical and civic groups across the nation.

Euliss is well-known for practical, but powerful, motivational and inspirational learning experiences and has been featured as a guest speaker at numerous venues, including many TV and radio shows, the Christian Management Association Annual Convention, and the Robert Scheuller Institute for Church Leadership at the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, Calif.

Church Business is the publication of choice among pastors of medium and large churches, and church business administrators, in the United States. Church Business is the first magazine in the industry to enter the world of Webinars -- Web-based seminars -- beginning with last January’s “11 Steps for Successful Strategic Planning for Churches” event, which was sponsored by RSI and attracted more than 200 attendees. This event was followed by “Improving the Worship Experience with Better Audio,” sponsored by Aviom, which focused on A/V concerns in the Church.
