Hi, I'm Daniel.
"I get excited about the process of helping ministries discover their identity and their audience, then building a a strategy to connect the two."
I believe that we have more ability to impact our communities and advance kingdom causes than any generation in history. The problem for ministry leaders is that effective communication strategies are changing faster than ever. The attention of the people you are trying to reach shifts every day. It's my passion to keep up with those trends.
Knowledge isn’t enough, that’s why I have developed a network of professionals and resources to accomplish your ministry vision. That’s the partnership value I strive to provide to ministries.
Let's start with discovering and defining the problem.
Your pews are packed, but the people aren’t engaged with what is happening around them. They aren’t hearing the incredible stories of life change in your congregation. We need to build a strategy to accomplish that.
Maybe your ministry's stakeholders are declining in number. They aren't engaged with your story. We need to build a strategy around that.
“As a ministry leader, I must effectively communicate what God is doing in our church and invite others to join us in Christian community. But so often, I feel overwhelmed at the creative skill, technology, and approach needed to get the word out.
Daniel has taken what seemed daunting and made it accessible - clear, skillful communication with a heart for Gospel ministry. His communication plan and creative skills turned a brand new event into a church-wide vision.”
