I am the Communications Director at St. Andrew’s Church in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. My job is to develop and implement communications strategies for a 5,000 member Anglican church across three campuses meeting in nine different Sunday services.
Some who know me might think this is a website about finishing a road race. I might use training and running as analogies but this website is about being the finisher in your organization.
The finisher is the guy who looks around, sees the pieces that need to be put together, gathers the pieces, and finishes the project. It’s not about being the go-to-guy but about bringing expertise to bear on things that will connect people to presence and power of Jesus Christ. Hopefully, it will be a resource for others who work behind the scenes of their organization. Whether your organization is small or large; not-for-profit, sole proprietor, or corporation, I believe we have things to share with each other about the way we communicate internally and externally and the way we bring things to completion.
Much thanks goes to Mark Meyer who first put into words what I was thinking. I read his post and recognized myself. Sometimes I really don’t like being the finisher but most days it brings me immense satisfaction.
In my job I manage websites, print work, liturgy, video production, weekly emails, advertising, public relations, and displays in the church lobby to name just a few things that fill my day. Some of this work I do on my own and on some projects I bring in outside designers and programmers.
Outside of being on the staff of St. Andrew’s, I’m also on the plant team at St. Andrew’s City Church where I’m the Luke wrangler and a member of the prayer team. In my spare time I like to run and coach others to run as well.
