Telling others' stories
In this week’s print edition of the Biblical Recorder, my editorial addresses some disadvantages North Carolina Baptists faced in the past regarding our communication strategies and some disadvantages staring at us now. I believe we are not using the communication tools that are readily available to us.
Many in our churches – perhaps most – do not know about the ministry of the Biblical Recorder or the five primary ways we deliver news to them. If they knew, I believe our print subscriptions would more than triple and the BRnow website – which has impressive traffic – would skyrocket. Please read my comments in the full editorial and share your thoughts with me.
The BR tells others’ stories. We report on churches, associations and statewide ministries so our Baptist family is informed about great victories and real needs across the state. Some of those ministries depend heavily on the North Carolina Missions Offering. Without this offering, disaster relief cannot happen. I hope your church is preparing to give a generous offering to NCMO. This week’s print edition has a list of the 50 churches that gave the largest gifts to last year’s NCMO.
