3 Instant Takeaways
- Your message starts with the look of your church. Yes, all the visuals from pews to paint colors to windows to backdrops actually send a message to people attending your church. Chris suggests thinking about how all your visuals are helping or hindering people to see Jesus.
- The first thing you should do is talk, not make design changes. There’s no point throwing up backgrounds, lights, or moving images because it’s the ‘thing to do.’ Get together and ask the intentional question, “Why are we doing this?” Have valid reasons for making changes to your worship or church experience.
- Drive consistency as hard as you can in your visuals. If you have a logo, stick to the design and use it everywhere. You may have to be vicious about it: keep the lobby, the sign, the bulletin and the sermon series branded the same. This increases trust in people who attend your church that you are intentional and organized.
