2 Great Ministry Conferences for Fall 2008

Kent Shaffer —  June 9, 2008

This fall, I will be speaking at two ministry conferences – MinistryCOM and The Internet Ministry Conference. I would love to meet you if you can make it to one or even both.

MinistryCOM :: September 18-19 :: Oklahoma City, OK
MinistryCOM is a church communications conference designed to give those in church communications encouragement, education, resources, and networking opportunities. I will be teaching a session called:

  1. Balance
    Without question, marketing can help a church better fulfill its mission. But if a church is not careful, marketing could actually distract it from its mission. This workshop discusses the importance of distinguishing between mission and marketing and how to strike balance between the two.

Other speakers include Mike Foster, Scott Hodge, Dawn Nicole Baldwin, Anne Jackson, and many more.

The Internet Ministry Conference :: October 20-23 :: Grand Rapids, MI
The Internet Ministry Conference caters to anyone with a passion to make an impact for Christ online. I will be teaching two sessions:

  1. All You Need to Know About Internet Ministry Marketing
    Get a well-rounded lesson in marketing your ministry on the Internet.
  2. Tailored Internet Marketing
    How to create an Internet ministry based on your calling and not what other ministries are doing.

Other speakers include Gabe Lyons, David Russell, Brad Abare, and many more.

Are you going to either conference? If so, post a comment and let me know. I look forward to meeting you in person.

  1. Hey Kent, trying to work on plans for attending MinistryCOM – If everything works out, I would love to meet with you there! (Of course, I’ll see you at the 2008 IMC for sure – Thanks for mentioning it!)

  2. I believe further insight into the importance of online marketing for churches and ministries is becoming a highly demanded topic. WIth the growing influence of the web and social networks, we as believers can make a greater impact just by knowing how to engage people on the web. Sounds like two awesome and well-needed conferences!

    Wish I could attend. :-(
