I just updated my iPhone 4 to iOS 6. It’s nice, but I’ve not been blown away … yet.
I’m sure that I’ll find something “magical” eventually.
At this point, we could go on and rehash the same new features that every other blog has been rehashing the past few days, but ChurchMag isn’t like every other blog.
So, instead, let’s see …
Annual Release Cycles for the Bride of Christ
Obviously, I’m not suggesting we need to put the Gospel on an annual release cycle where every year we update our message in keeping with a year spent researching current theological and sociological trends. I am, however, wondering what it would do for our churches to be on a similar cycle.
How cool would it be if your church’s design teams, preaching teams, curriculum teams, social media teams, and whatever other teams you have we’re strategically united in releasing a new campaign/theme every single year?
This could be huge.
A Panoramic Picture of a Annual Church Campaign
Let’s pretend that we volunteer on one of the creative teams at Rockland Community Tabernacle of Christ, Our Savior—on second thought, let’s call it “Rockland”—and we’re in a strategy meeting discussing the idea of putting our church’s quarterly campaigns (i.e. sermon series, graphics, Sunday School, youth/children’s ministries, etc … ).
How might that meeting go?
What would we discuss?
What would such a meeting look like at your actual church?
I know that good blogging often offers concrete solutions and expert advice, but I’m being hugely theoretical and asking more questions than I’m offering answers. Sorry if this is a let down, but I’m not an expert at this. However, I’m sure that together, we could craft something amazing.
So, let’s give this a try—what could/would/should we do to set a church on an annual “release cycle”?
Drop your thoughts in the comments below, and maybe together, we’ll develop an “expert” strategy.
I’ll go first.
