One of the “extras” we recommend when a parish engages with us for an offertory program, capital campaign, or vision plan is a compelling parish video. How has the parish shaped the lives of parishioners?
One of the parishes we work with has taken this to the ‘next level’ and I wanted to share today. Not every parish can make a 15 minute video, but starting small and working up to something more is a great idea.
If you’re thinking “we don’t have the skills to do this” I want you to rethink how you ask people to volunteer in the parish. Most parishes will have at least one person who knows how to operate a cell phone camera and has made something at home. Or someone who is willing to fund the project.
It doesn’t need to be elaborate, just keep it simple. Take a chance on something new this year!
