I received the report … What wonderful stuff. We have already learned so much from this initial phase, I look forward to the next steps. Thank you for your wisdom. -First Trinity Lutheran Church
Every church community has a unique story. But you have to tell that story well. Yes, there is something to be said for consistent Christian advertising and branding, hip new media technology and web design, crowd-drawing events, and the latest social media and church growth strategies. But not one of those marketing methods will mean anything if you don’t define who you are and communicate it consistently at all touchpoints. .
Everything in your church talks – your media, your programs, your staff, your facilities, your congregation. Everything. What are they saying about you?
It is said that Michelangelo, while sculpting, would “chip away the stone to release the sculpture that is trapped within.” In a similar way, we must peel away the distracting clutter, the mixed messages and the misleading voices to get to the core of your message. That’s what people will connect with.

To be always relevant, you have to say things which are eternal. -Simone Weil
Church Relations For Para-Church Organizations:
Making an impact in our culture today certainly involves connecting with people in local churches, and their leaders. We are on the same team. But bridges need to be built between the sometimes “mysterious” world of churches and those called to serve the Body of Christ at large.
There are sometimes false perceptions of conflicting interests, which often don’t really exist.
The Vaughn Street team has been enlisted by international ministries to build bridges to pastors and churches, and brings you a wealth of experience and perspective on both sides of this challenge.
In other words – make friends with churches.
