Communication is the key to grass roots efforts. The battle for hearts and minds begins within the church and continues outside the church structure. Whether its expressing cultural influence or working political campaigns designing communication strategies that are new and effective is paramount.
For Citizenship as Ministry Teams building on communications skills and developing impact can take place in the following arenas.
- Prayer for guidance unity and direction
- Presence in the political arena during legislative sessions to combat bad ideas and support good ones and work in developing an agenda of our own.
- Developing goals and issues that will engage people in the cultural political effort and builds an expectation of success.
- Identifying attractive, viable, Godly candidates who could run for public office.
- Build a cadre of sophisticated campaign workers who understand the “team effort” nature of campaigns.
- Assist the church and the pastor in addressing the need for congregation wide civic engagement in the voting arena and help in events and programs to build this attribute.
- Become informed on the nature of our Constitutional Republic, how to defend its basic tenants and the techniques used to discourage and suppress civic engagement, particularly among Christians.
On the communication front Citizenship as Ministry Teams can develop their own methods of communication or we can assist from our different platforms.
