    #22 What would make you a more effective Church Communicator?

    Church Communicators do an extraordinary job and often with little training for their demanding work. In this episode, I want to introduce you to an exciting new resource for you--the Effective Church Communications Library.

    In the podcast, I'll share what motivated me to put this resource together and some specific areas it can help you with. 

    Here is the link to go to the Effective Church Communications Library: https://yvonprehn.podia.com/ecclibrary

    #21 A non-technical solution to giving for churches that are not meeting

    #21 A non-technical solution to giving for churches that are not meeting

    To meet the challenge of how to keep donations coming into churches when they can't meet together is to emphasize or launch online giving. And though it's a great solution, it isn't realistic for every church, either financially or because a number of people in the church simply will not use it.

    To solve that challenge this podcast proposes an idea that will not only keep needed financial donations coming in, but that will minister to the scattered members, some of whom may be lonely and afraid.

    Technology is wonderful, but sometimes non-tech solutions can be solved in simple ways.

    #19 D-Day and Church Communications: with words from C.S. Lewis and memories of my Grandfather as they left England the morning of D-Day

    #19 D-Day and Church Communications: with words from C.S. Lewis and memories of my Grandfather as they left England the morning of D-Day

    Today is the 75th anniversary of D-Day and while we commemorate and honor the sacrifices of those who stormed the beaches of Normandy I think it is appropriate to remind everyone who is involved in Church Communications that you are daily involved in storming the strongholds of Satan to win people to Jesus. 

    To do that I want to share 3 things:


    A quote from C.S. Lewis and how it applies to us as church communicators
    A challenge for church communicators about the reality of spiritual warfare
    Finally, a memory of D-Day from my adopted grandfather as they were boarding the boats to take them from England to Normandy.

    For the rest of the content and to hear my grandfather's story, go to: https://wp.me/pDky9-8w0

    #18 Father's Day—Beyond celebration—how to make the ministry most of it to grow Dads spiritually

    #18 Father's Day—Beyond celebration—how to make the ministry most of it to grow Dads spiritually

     It's easy to look at Father's Day as just another holiday to do up a special bulletin and social media for and to say a few nice things about Dads during the church service. But did you know you can do so much more as communicators for Jesus?

    We need to constantly remind ourselves in the crush of trivia and distraction that our job is not to be a holy version of Hallmark where our goal is to have the most appealing Father's Day social media and PowerPoint ever, but that our primary job in communications, as in all of life if we are followers of Jesus, is to grow as his disciples and to share his message of salvation—in other words, to fully fulfill the Great Commission.

    This podcast will inspire you to see how much you can do for Fathers on their special day, plus preview and provide church communications tools and templates that will help you do all the things we talk about. 

    The free templates and resources for Father's Day are at: https://www.effectivechurchcom.com

    #17 SPECIAL PODCAST: Yvon Prehn reading "One Mother's Prayer"

    #17 SPECIAL PODCAST: Yvon Prehn reading "One Mother's Prayer"

    This short piece, One Mother's Prayer, is a true story that is both an encouragement to pray for children and an assurance of the power of prayer to change a destiny.

    The written version been published more times than anything else I've written. It was first published in Today's Christian Woman magazine. Then it was included in their Best of Ten Years of writings, it has been reprinted and republished all over the world, and it continues to bring tears to the eyes of any group I read it to. 

    This year I decided to record it and I'll put the embed code at this link: https://wp.me/pDky9-5HO

     You are free to use it any way you want and share it however you want.

    In addition to the audio file at that link is also a Free ZIP FILE of PDF formats: 2 more 8 1/2 by 11 plus 4 other versions on half sheet size plus the jpgs of the larger files and an MS Word text file if you want to create your own publication. 

    This is a great resource not only for Mother's Day, but any time of the year for Mom's groups and prayer groups.
