After prayerful consideration we’ve decided to postpone the 2020 Communications Summit. We are discussing how we can take this discussion, along with several of the teachings of our summit, online! Please standby for more information on this.

Sessions at the Summit will take you behind the scenes of Saddleback and show you high-level strategy as well as the nitty-gritty details of how we get things done.

Sessions will cover the following topics:

  • Utilizing tools to organize and schedule your promotions
  • Crafting a compelling story
  • Cultivating a community in digital space
  • Designing for your target audience
  • Aligning multiple campuses with the overall brand

Perhaps the greatest value you’ll receive is the relationships that you create. You’ll have the opportunity to connect with and learn from church-communications leaders from around the country. We intentionally keep this gathering small to allow you more time for personal dialogue and developing lifelong friendships.
