    Communication folks in the Houston area: gather with other church comm folks at two upcoming events hosted by the Houston Church Communication Coalition (H3C).

    On Tue, Jun 28, we welcome Gordon Pennington to our H3C Summit. Gordon once served as the director of marketing for Tommy Hilfiger and has great insight on getting the church’s message out in today’s culture. Then, on Fri, Oct 7, we’re hosting a one-day workshop with Kem Meyer, author of “Less Clutter. Less Noise.”

    There is a church on every corner and then some in Tulsa, OK. I’d love to see a meet-up group or other educational/informational conference in Tulsa.
