Top church logo designs

I think I’ve seen just about every church logo there is. Good or bad design, inspirational and creative. You name it. I’ve seen it. I think the best logos are distinctive, memorable, scalable and simple enough to use in different environments.

One great recurring theme about social media is change. Change is constant and swift. If your social media plan was written in 2013 can may already be out of date with all of the recent shifts that have been going on. I have seen a many changes over the last year on social media, but there is one dramatic seismic shift that I want you to be able to plan for in social media that is coming in 2014/2015.

Finding a great video for your church Christmas service is rare. Finding a video for your church Christmas service that has an original angle/idea on it is even rarer.  This was created as a promo video, but it could be used as a pre-service video in a church.

Instagram is fast becoming a great social media platform for churches. The benefits for users when compared to Facebook are obvious. It is clean, you don’t get bombarded with the noise of advertising. I personally love the new video element to it and the opportunities it is providing for churches. I post every day on it personally.
