About Marketing Ministry
Marketing Ministry (formerly Media Ministry) was established in 2004 as a direct result of the need to improve the church website. With the additional responsibilities of creating marketing and publicity items for church events, this ministry was officially formed. Since then, our website has grown from 13 pages to several hundred active pages.
Combining words, images, and technology, this ministry strives to serve as an effective marketing and outreach resource to spread the Word of God far beyond our church walls.
What does Marketing Ministry do at Solid Rock?
Website Administration and Maintenance
To ensure that all text information and links that appear on the Solid Rock Website are checked for accuracy and timeliness. This includes the creation of graphics to enhance information as well as to communicate any problems with functionality to our service provider for correction.
In order to keep our website fresh, we assign reporters and photographers to cover our church events and post new weekly articles on our homepage. This helps to promote future event participation and encourages our visitors to keep coming back to our site. We've established and follow set guidelines for writing to ensure quality content.
Design of flyers, brochures, posters, and other handout materials for local and community focused events. All items designed for a specific event are to follow the selected theme (if any) and similar visual appearance in order to maintain consistency and clarity throughout the project.
Planning with ministry leaders is vital to discuss or decide on a theme (slogan/logo) that would best convey the intent and goals of the event.
Development of Multimedia Presentations
To visually enhance sermon presentations and special events announcements for our church. Software applications such as Microsoft PowerPoint™, Adobe Illustrator™, and Adobe Photoshop™ will be used in conjunction with appropriate media (text, graphics, motion/transition effects, audio clips, etc) to best convey the intended concept and purpose of the presenter and/or local host ministry.
