WHAT ARE YOUR PROJECTED PLANS GOING FORWARD FOR THE NEXT 3-6 MONTHS?

  1. Complete the finals stage of preparation to have Trinity’s weekly worship services available for online live streaming and post-viewing.
  2. Continue to build our team of videographers, editors and helpers throughout the video ministry. With the goal and expectations rising quickly, we continue to seek more individuals with experience and skill in these areas. There will still be room for training (to a certain extent) for those with little or no experience, however the ministry and its impact has grown at a much quicker rate than was originally expected so we are seeking individuals who are immediately able to create and produce content with specific and fast approaching deadlines.
  3. Continue to make the mobile app relevant and use it in creative ways to connect with our people, making them aware of events and programs, while also inspiring their weekly worship. -Pursue the goal of a complete website refresh and design overhaul for both church and school.
    1. Receive Quotes from 3 different companies
    2. This site will incorporate our new branding and logo throughout;
    3. It will have a focus on video and graphic content (along with text), highlighting our people, and giving our ministry directors an opportunity to share from their hearts about what God is doing in their prospective ministries.
  4. Plan to work with Lisa Redmond on a visual branding refresh for “Reveal Kids!”
