Effective ministry is the art of clearing hurdles. The difficulty is that you need to tell an exponential number of volunteers, teenagers, leaders, and parents that you are going to jump and coordinate it well enough so your ministry clears the hurdle in one piece. Check out Josh’s posts to see how he suggests you communicate to people of different age groups.

Clear Communication = Classy Communication
The key to clear communication is that it’s concise and offers the details that people need in order to act. Generally this includes date, time, place, location, what’s needed, how/if you need to RSVP, and the purpose of the event.

Clear and concise communication conquers design. Don’t waste a ton of time creating the most graphically stunning flier; instead, focus on getting your message across, and then make it visually appealing.

Constant and Comprehensive = Classy Communication
Repeating your message through different channels and media over a period of time should (notice I said should) minimize miscommunication. Sending out announcements in various forms (text, email, web-based, fliers, and postcards) may also help get your message out. Know your audience, because this will tell you how to communicate.

Classy Communication Creates Rhythm
With rhythm you are able to set a pace for when you tell parents and students information. They receive information and develop habits of their own when it comes from a consistent source. Think about rhythm when you post fliers in your building (where do parents pass by frequently for easy access?) and when you choose to use emails, texts, and blog posts. Rhythm helps set the pace for your entire ministry.

Classy Communication Is Current
No matter how you communicate, ensure that your communication is current. Whether you use the Internet or church hallway-based calendars or bulletin boards, keep them current. Ensure that the methods you communicate have fresh and relevant information; otherwise people ignore them and miss your sporadic communications.

The Classiest Communication Is Individualized Communication
When you communicate on the individual level, you build rapport, gain insight, and demonstrate care for the people around you. Whether you use handwritten notes, texts, or even a meeting in a coffee shop, your ministry will benefit because you communicate individually as well as corporately.
