Communication as Formation

How can the communications office and the faith formation/Christian education office work together? With Sunday attendance a challenge for many families, 21st-century models of formation require reaching beyond the Sunday school hour. Faith-at-home practices, adult education, delivering the Bible to your parishioner's phone, all of these are formation and communication challenges. What strains does that put on the communications staff? Learn about some best practices, some language to use and how to increase faith formation within your communications channels.
