Listen to the Audio

Okay, this is a BIG question and one that can’t be answered in a single episode. So, I’m going to break up my answer in two parts. In part one, I cover how set up get the process for getting your sermon series artwork ready for social media. Here’s a breakdown of what I cover in this episode.

  • Determine Your Social Media Networks (What social media networks will you use during this sermon series?)
  • Determine What You Need for Each Network (Graphics for social media posts? Cover photos?)
  • Determine Dimensions for Each Network (Use Canva to get the latest dimensions.)
  • Document the Workflow (Make sure other people on your team can repeat this process.)
  • Determine Your Timeline (We work on two-week window.)
  • Beware of Store Blindness (Create variety in your graphics so your audience won’t get bored.)

Additional Resources

In this episode, I also recommend you check out Canva. It’s great tool for creating graphics for social media. Here’s a tutorial on how to use it.

Episode 1: How to Help Your Church Leadership Change Strategy

Welcome to Episode 1 of the Ask Darrel podcast. In this first episode, we talk about to help your church leadership change strategy.

How to Help Your Church Leadership Change Strategy

Today’s question comes from Dave Shrein:

If my leadership thinks they have a communication strategy and they don’t think we have problems, but I’ve been reading your stuff and reading other educated content, how do I convince them that we do have a problem while respecting them?

Listen to the Audio

This is a great question and one that I’ve had to deal with myself. In this episode, I cover four steps to guiding your church leadership through change:

  1. Painting a reality with objective information
  2. Creating a vision for what the future strategy could be
  3. Defining small steps to create the change
  4. Finding ways to make the small changes become habits

Additional Resources

In this episode, I also recommend you check out Dan and Chip Heath’s book Switch: How to Change Things When Change Is HardIt gives some really good guidance how to make change happen in any organization.

I’m Starting a Podcast and I Need Your Help

Jonathan Howe recently wrote that this year would be the year of the podcast. I couldn’t agree more, so I’ve decided to jump in and start my own podcast called Ask Darrel.

podcast-announcements

The format will be very simple. You send me your questions about social media, church communications or technology. I’ll then choose one question and answer it the best way I know how. No interviews, no hour long murder mysteries or sports talk. Just me, your question and an answer.

I promise to keep the podcast short, to the point and steer you in the right direction. However, there’s one thing I need from you and that’s questions.

You can help me out by submitting your questions right here on this blog post (see the form below), on Twitter using the hashtag #askdarrel or on the menu up the at the top. Once I get the questions, I’ll start producing the podcast and start releasing episodes in March.
