I’m privileged of having lots of conversations with people serving in various church comms and charity roles. There are many common issue I hear they are facing.
But one issue is consistent across everyone. The stress is real. And most people face it. No matter if they are a paid staff member, or volunteer.
I face it too.
It usually expresses itself in different ways but with an overarching theme.
“Steve, I have issues getting enough content created.”
“I have issues with consistency creating content across our channels.”
“We have a lack of content A team of ONE doing it all.”
“I’m doing everything myself.”
“I neither have the time and I lack knowledge.”
All of these issues are centred around the theme of time. Many are in part time roles, and they are always overstretched and under-resourced. Especially when it comes to social media. Is this you?

I’m doing everything myself – I get that this can be a struggle. Just because you do everything yourself doesn’t mean you have to create everything yourself. Check out Sunday Social for example. They create beautiful social graphics for churches.
