Focus Conference

I’m honoured to be part of a group collaborating to get the first purely one day church visual arts/communications conference in Melbourne off the ground.

This is a straight out plug. I fully endorse this message ;-)

The conference is called Focus and is for designers, communicators, videographers and church leaders. Okay, anyone who is around and passionate about communicating the gospel through the visual medium. It’s going to inspire you and hopefully give you a few tips too!

If you know someone, or are involved in this area come along. It’s very affordable ($25). Register today here and find out who is speaking. More speakers are being announced all the time.

I don’t make this request often at all, please click on the social media buttons below to share this on your social networks and let’s all play a part in spreading the love. It will be worth it.

Why-I-blog

I’ve been blogging about communications, marketing and social media for churches since 2009. I remember starting on TypePad with no code experience and very little web design chops.
