Communications & Creative Director

Fellowship Denver is a church of approximately 1,000 people that gathers in two congregations: South Broadway (Denver) and North Metro (Arvada). The Communications and Creative Director is a new central, churchwide role that will serve both congregations. The job will involve both strategic planning and weekly implementation. The ideal person sees communications not just as a utility but as a strategic opportunity to advance the gospel, deepen connections within the congregations, and publicly represent the church.

Extend the church’s reach
Fellowship Denver has a “voice” that resonates with people who are interested in exploring faith or learning about Jesus but who are not necessarily looking for an evangelical church. An opportunity exists to extend this voice with a more strategic approach to public communication. This could include both reworking existing communication tools and messaging, as well as creating new resources and pathways that connect with people in our local community.
Facilitate new connections

The church has a steady inflow of new visitors and a growing core of committed members. Both of these groups rely on the clarity and accessibility of our communication channels to learn about opportunities for connection and growth. New visitors should experience that the first steps into the church are clear, easy to respond to and receive prompt replies. Committed members should experience that “what’s going on” is coherent, easy to find and simple to keep up with across multiple channels (website, email, app, social media, printed materials, building signage, etc.)

Release a team of ministry leaders
The church’s mission is led by a creative staff team who build ministry environments and discipleship opportunities. The church recently multiplied from one to two congregations in different parts of the Denver Metro Area. The Communications & Creative Director will serve ministries across the church by aligning all-church communication priorities (avoiding silos), building communications infrastructure for “one church, two congregations,” and supporting individual ministries in their communications needs.
