The passion at Church Juice is to help churches be intentional about how they communicate with their congregations and communities. The Juicys recognize and reward churches who make great improvements in their communication or marketing, whether it’s a great website, some creative initiative, solid branding, or innovative overall communication strategy. They are the only church communications awards in North America. In 2018, The Juicys are back after a two year hiatus.
This year’s winners will each receive a ticket to That Church Conference in Atlanta this September along with a one-year subscription to SundayU. They will also receive a three-month subscription to Courageous Storytellers from the Center for Church Communication. “We’ll ask churches that get a Juicy to help us tell their stories about their projects,” says Bryan Haley, Producer of Church Juice. “Their stories will be available for free on Church Juice. We’ll showcase their cool communications projects and offer advice to churches that are looking to do something similar.”
A panel of church communication experts from across North America helped select the winners. And the winners are:
The Juicy for Branding. Old Cutler Presbyterian Church in Miami, Florida. The church rebranded their children’s ministry area to better welcome young families and saw an immediate increase in new connections.
The Juicy for Communication Strategy. Encounter Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The church created a highly successful campaign around communicating the church’s vision and values.
The Juicy for Web Design. Hope Church in New York City. Communicators at Hope Church designed a clean, simplified point of connection for potential guests to church locations throughout the Big Apple.
The Juicy for Print Design. Calvary Church in Roseville, Minnesota. The church publishes a brand new, regular newsletter that has very effectively improved the church’s communication reach in their congregation and community.
The Juicy for Creative Use. The First Church in Albany, New York. First Church took part in a downtown business art project to tell the community about their food pantry.
We’re thrilled with this year’s Juicys winners and can’t wait to tell their stories at Church Juice. If you’d like to know more about Church Juice and The Juicys jump on over to churchjuice.com.
