Hey Fletch … We are a church of 1,400. We do not currently have a dedicated communications person. If we explore going to a new hire, who do they typically report to? 

DRF—That is a perceptive question. Traditionally, a Communication Director reports to the Operations Director. If they do, then the Ministry XP needs to have a very close working relationship with Ops. Things are changing though. My preference is to have Communications be under Ministry, unless Communications also has Information Technology in it.

The lines are blurring between traditional communications, computers and worship audio-visual. How we use technology drives our ability to creatively communicate. All three areas center on similar technology of computers, connectedness and signal processing. Look at the bigger picture of how you are using communications, creative design and technology in your church.
