Engaging the New

by Brian Kaylor

On July 1, I started a new position with Churchnet. I think this will make my fifth job title in the twelve years I've worked there (wow, that makes me feel a bit old). Most of the others were similar, basically saying I led the communication efforts. The new title - Generational Engagement Team Leader - indicates an expanded role. I'll still give lead to communication items, but will also lead the efforts for our new strategic initiative area of helping churches reach new generations and cultures.

I'm excited - and challenged - by the new focus. If you've followed demographic data, you know that churches are struggling to reach younger generations. My focus will include:
     - Training events & resources
     - Identify models for best practices
     - Digital communications
     - Storytelling evangelism
I am looking forward to working with churches on these areas (in the photo above, I'm leading a breakout session during the Churchnet Annual Gathering in April). I'm open to ideas and insights. Let me know if you've seen a church modeling generational engagement.

Upcoming Event

Baptist World Congress
July 22-26 in Durban, South Africa

Next week I'll be in South Africa for a meeting of the Baptist World Alliance. In addition to enjoying the sights and culture, I will speak on a panel on "Church and Technology," report on the meeting for Ethics Daily and Churchnet, and attend committee meetings (I've been on the Communications Advisory Committee since 2010 and will be joining the Awards Committee and the Commission on Christian Ethics). If you're in the neighborhood, I hope to see you!
