Local Church Communications Services

Our churches in the California-Pacific Conference can acquire new ministry capabilities for the digital-first age through the Local Church Communications Services offered by the Office of Communications.

By sharing the cost with apportionment funding, local churches can afford professional digital ministry services.

Space for this program is limited – priority will be given to churches that exhibit potential with the following characteristics:

  • Participated in Conference or District events or initiatives for church vitalization
  • Clarity in the integration of the Four Priorities into the life of the church
  • Shown promise in vitality through community engagement
  • Think in terms of digital-first
