"Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, we work hard to persuade others. God knows we are sincere, and I hope you know this, too."
- 2 Corinthians 5:11, NLT
The Outreach & Communication Team has a 3-point mission. Or is it vision? Okay, let's say these are our guiding principles.:
1. Seek to glorify God.
2. Facilitate better communication within the HVPC body.
3. Help HVPC be attractive to those seeking a church home.
One thing we are NOT doing is marketing. Nope. Marketing is fine for a non-church business or organization, but it is not what churches do. Inherent in marketing is selling. The church is not and should not be about selling anything.
We are spreading the Gospel, sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ, seeking the lost, providing hope to the hopeless, being a light in a dark world, offering healing for the hurting, and, well, you get the idea.
What the church has to offer—the Gospel—is truly unique from any business or organization that needs to employ marketing. The focus of this team is to remove distractions, obstacles, and barriers to allow full exposure to the attraction of a clear, simple Gospel message.
To this end, we will...
- continuously review all of our communications efforts to discern their effectiveness and look for ways to improve and expand them.
- explore appropriate outreach activities and facilitate their execution.
We are open to volunteers in various communications and outreach capacities: writing, editing, reporting, photography, social media, videography, graphic artists, planning, event management, and so forth.
