How to effectively Communicate Stage Announcements

Podcast IconAre Stage Announcements really part of a Church Communication strategy? That is what I asked myself many times before. However, after talking with Adam McLaughlin about his new book, SnorkelFork, I have realized just how effective stage announcements can be to your overall Church communication strategy.

That is why I brought back Adam McLaughlin to the podcast. He has been involved in digital church communications for years, does a podcast at Church Marketing Ideas and works as a Church Communicator in Ft. Myers, Florida. In today’s episode, Adam and I discuss

  • How much Adam is enjoying the warmth of Florida
  • What is SnorkelFork
