The Juicys are back and we’re rewarding communications awesomeness for a fourth year.
If you’re new to Church Juice, or just need a refresh, The Juicys are our annual way of recognizing churches that are doing great communications projects.
What hasn’t changed this year is the fact we will be awarding multiple $2000 grants, with the likelihood of some smaller $1000 runner-up grants, for churches that have great vision for effectively using communications tools to reach their congregations and surrounding communities.
What has changed is how we’ll break up the categories for deciding winners. In the past, we labeled groups as small or big churches. This year, we’ll wait on the titles until we receive all the applications. This gives some flexibility in grouping churches in size ranges that make it easier to fairly compare congregations against their peers.
The Juicys aren’t just about money. We regularly hear how communications is an underappreciated part of most churches. With this program, we want to recognize the work you’re doing and encourage you to keep moving forward.
The application process is pretty simple. Go to the The Juicys page and answer some questions. We want to know what you’ve done and what you want to do in the future. Then we’ll have a panel of smart communication people look over the applications and pick their favorites.
On the new Juicys page, there are also two ways to submit your application. You can do it online through our form or feel free to download the application as Word document and email it back to us. Either way is fine. We just want to make it easy for you to apply.
At Church Juice, we believe in the power of the local church. We also hold education as a high value. We’ll share the stories of the churches that get grants as a way to inspire and guide other congregations who are looking to do similar kinds of projects. We are all in this together.
Don’t be modest. Get excited about the work you’ve done to build God’s Kingdom. We’re looking for any sort of communications project. It could be a revamped website, a complete rebranding, great use of social media, a new overall communications plan, an outreach campaign or something so cool it’s not in this list. If you know of other churches doing innovative things, share this with them, too.
If you still have some questions, or want to see some of the past winners, head to The Juicys section. The application deadline is Tuesday, September 30.
