On September 9, 2021 at 10am US-ET (UTC -4), I will be presenting a webinar for EMDC called “How to Tell Dangerous Stories.” This webinar explains ways that organizations can safely share stories of impact from places with security challenges.
For more than 20 years, I have served missions in communications. Over that time, I discovered that the job of a missions communicator is more than just getting stories of missions out or making materials to promote a mission organization’s vision and programs. An essential part of our work also fits into WEA Global Member Care Network Coordinator Harry Hoffman’s category of “people helpers” – a group Harry explains is an untapped ocean of resources to care for staff in the missions community.
Missio Nexus has invited me to coordinate two upcoming webinars aimed at growing the knowledge and skills of mission agency staff engaged in communications and marketing. These are free to anyone that is a Missio Nexus member or part of a Missio Nexus member organization. The first is on March 23 and the second is on April 6.
The Essentials for Fundraising and Development book is a a collection of best practices, ideas, and strategies provided by 10 ministry fundraising experts. Le Motif came alongside Missio Nexus to provide substantive editing services for this new resource.
The first guest presented webinar for missions communicators is now available here and on the le Motif YouTube channel. This 30 minute webinar was presented by Florence Wamae on “A Diverse Audience in a Changing World.”
Mission organizations fail to inspire the whole Church to join in God’s mission because they continue to undervalue and under-resource the contributions of missions journalists. But if they took journalism as a serious means of global education, it would radically shift global Church engagement in God’s mission.
The content from May 2020’s webinar and July 2020’s e-course is now in an e-book! If you are a part of a ministry network and want to learn how you can more effectively share the story of your network and its cause, this e-book will be a valuable tool for you.
I have been invited to do a webinar for a large ministry network which includes many media professionals. This will take place on Thursday, 29 October 2020 at 10 AM and 8PM (EDT/GMT -4).
Missions journalists “are an unseen force which remains largely unrecognized, misunderstood and undervalued,” yet the global Church desperately needs to develop a coherent, global narrative of God at work in the world today through missions.
