Marketing and promotional services

Helping churches reach out

“Thank you for your willingness to go deep into looking for specific products that meet our brand. ... It really makes it feel like the greater body serving the local church instead of the other way.” 

— The Rev. Andrew Moyer, pastor of The Light at Joplin in Joplin, MO, after receiving branded promotional items

Need help with church marketing?

The beauty of the United Methodist connection is best seen in local churches ministering and thriving in unique ways. Each congregation has its own identity, rich history, community relationships, missional partnerships and divine calling.

Every church is vital in our global mission to make disciples for the transformation of the world. That is why we are intentional in our work with local churches to help them enhance their communication, outreach and marketing efforts. Not only do we provide a menu of marketing services, but also the training and coaching to help local church pastors and leaders continue to be effective at promoting their church’s mission, events and services to reach new people in new ways.

Our menu of services can be tailored to fulfill specific needs of individual churches. After completing an application and discovery process, churches may be offered services such as social media consultation and audits, website development & SEO optimization, advertising, branding/logo assistance, stationery and business card design and much more.
