Communications

Christ Community Church is filled with servants and volunteers who help to lead a variety of ministries. In order to communicate with the larger body about the events happening around the church, we ask that all ministries complete a Communication Request Form. This helps us to gather information in one location so it can be reviewed and referenced by all involved.

Please read the lead times information below. 

These are minimum estimates [the communication team meets weekly on Tuesdays to review these requests] and your project may require more lead time depending on the complexity. The earlier a request is submitted the more time is available to help accomplish your communication goals, so plan as far ahead as possible!

Most requests = 2 weeks

Announcement Video2 weeks
Services and announcements are scheduled as far as out as 12 weeks. Depending on service elements, not all requests can be approved.

Hand out/flyer/postcard/printed piece = 3 weeks
As a general rule, we do not hand out printed pieces unless they are part of a special promotion [kick-offs, special church-wide events, community invitations]. Best practice is use the Mobile App
for notifications.

Webpage basic content update = 1 week
Webpage change to majority of content = 2 weeks

App Push notification = 1 week
App Push notification plan = 2 weeks prior to start of plan

Short Video Project Under 2 Minutes = 3 weeks
Long Video Project Over 2 Minutes = 6 weeks
Video Projects are collaborative and take a lot of time, skill, and dedication to complete. Having a detailed plan [script/story, actors, locations, similar videos or concepts] for your project will keep things moving and help communicate your vision to those helping you complete this undertaking.

[Not all projects can or will be pursued due to the limit on staff and resources. Projects are prioritized by many factors.]


We look forward to working with you and helping you share your project within the mission of connecting people to life-defining relationships in Christ!
