Church tech can be a minefield. There’s lighting, sound, Church Management Software, IT, websites, streaming, cyber-security and much more.

And I’m always up for some Star Wars fan art and these t-shirts by TeeTurtle are no exception.
In honor of Peter Mayhew’s passing this week, I’m going to be sharing with you their Chewbacca designs.

Before digging into the Snack Pack I’d like to say thank you to all the people who watched the Instagram Takeover I did yesterday which was a sort of “behind the scenes” look at how I put this together every week. If you missed it go check out the Highlights where you can also find Blessing and Jeremy’s Takeovers too.

95% of this book is above how to change your marketing message so that you can effectively impact your community. As a church, how we engage with other people the first time and the fiftieth time is important.
But that other 5% of this build is dedicated to changing the organization from the inside out. It’s one thing to have your social media team spend two months working on the perfect marketing campaign to push out an Easter and Christmas service holiday. But that’s a short season and building this framework is about completely transforming.
