Why the Church needs PR

Say cheeseBecause of stories like this one from CBS News.

Now I’m not saying every church doing a bake sale and car wash should hire a PR firm, but those churches, ministries and faith-based organizations that have a proven local, regional or national image should have protection. They have security for its body. They need security for its reputation.

Now, I’m not ignoring the adage, “Where there is smoke, there is fire.” But, smoke can be snuffed out before it causes a California inferno.

Call it a cheap plug, call it self-aggrandizement. Don’t care. What I care about is the church – and ultimately the Body of Christ – being protected, honored and promoted properly. Because the more negativity prevailing out there about our shepherds, the more scattered the flock will become.

There are skilled organizations out there that are proven with the press, but have a heart for the harvest, like THIS ONE (hint to all pastors, evangelists and teachers that belong to the aforementioned organizations with a story to tell).

Hope we hear from you.

Peace,
