The Intensive: A two-day Center for Church Communication event

Ready for your church to communicate better? Let us help you on your journey.

The Intensive (formerly known as Certification Lab) is a two-day concentrated workshop designed to help communicators from churches of all sizes improve their communications and marketing effort.

The format is a combination of lecture style (with some of today’s most renown church communication experts) combined with lab-style projects that leave people exhilarated, equipped, and empowered to communicate better.

(Register early for the lowest prices, plus Courageous Storytellers members receive an additional discount.)

Ready to Get Better?

We’re proud to have an experienced team of instructors sharing their insights at each Intensive event. Here’s a taste of the kinds of wisdom you’ll get at The Intensive:

  1. If you feel like you’re doing it wrong, you’re not alone.
  2. Being teachable is essential if we are going to help our churches make progress. Learn how to embrace change.
  3. Three simple phrases: “Thanks so much. Help me. I’m stuck.” You’re not the only church communicator struggling to keep up.
  4. How to handle communication requests from multiple ministries without chaos.
  5. How to do church service planning in advance.
  6. We need to redefine excellence. It’s not about measuring up, but making the most.
  7. The best marketing strategy is to just stay calm and tackle it one bite at a time.
  8. As church communicators, we need to create and enforce boundaries within the church staff.
  9. Communicators need a seat at the table.
  10. Here are four ways to engage volunteers.
