The Leadership and Ministry webpages centrally locate the resources needed for the excellent formation and support of authorized ministers in the United Church of Christ.
Herein are tools for authorized ministers, for individuals discerning God’s call into ministry, for Committees on Ministry that bear out the denomination’s covenantal relationship with ministers, and for Associations, Conferences, churches and organizations that partner with authorized ministers in building up the body of Christ.
For example, the missions media coordinator at First United Methodist Church in Colorado Springs “stays apprised of all that is going on in missions within the church and communicates that information to the congregation through the bulletin, Encounter, brochures, and the website.”A paid staff person who specializes in media ministry should have a strong technical background and good leadership and communication skills.
However, volunteers do not need as much technical background because most churches provide on-the-job training.
Media ministers work behind the scenes to make it possible to share the message of a church with large groups of people through amplified sound, recordings, Power Point presentations, Web pages and other forms of communication.
