Every year I get the privilege of writing this letter in our annual report. I cherish the opportunity to look back and take account of all the good things that God is doing through our meager efforts at the Center for Church Communication (CFCC). I never cease to be amazed at how we hear from communications directors “in the trenches” about how we’ve helped make life a little easier for them.
I get to reflect on how burdens are lifted through Creative Missions. I get to see people read Church Marketing Sucks and experience the “frustrate, educate, motivate” process. I get to see members join the Courageous Storytellers membership site and, often for the very first time in their ministry career, find that particular resource that helps them turn the ship of change in their local context. I watch as someone attends one of our live events and a light comes on that causes the light of the gospel to shine brighter in the community they return to.
I’m one of the lucky ones. Many people go through most of their lives and never get to see the change that their work makes in the world. But I do. And I want to share that beauty with you.
If you are a writer, contributor, missionary, designer, photographer, editor, strategist, sponsor, advertiser, supporter, prayer warrior, or any other participant in what we’re doing here at CFCC, please let me take this opportunity to thank you. Your participation here matters and is making an eternal difference.
