COMMUNICATIONS

MANAGER

Helping others follow Jesus.

Christ Fellowship is a dynamic multi-site church in Miami-Dade County. The mission of our church is to help others follow Jesus.

We are currently searching for a full-time Communications Manager who will aid us in effectively directing the church's overall strategic plan for internal and external communications.  Being a church averaging over 8,700 weekly attendees with 7 campuses and global venues, our communication strategy needs to be succinct, in line with Scripture, accessible to all who attend and visit, and also make sense to the outlying and "unchurched" community.

 

The Communications Manager will:

  • Unify and align communications.

  • Work with church and ministry leaders to develop communications processes and define priorities to create an environment in which messages can be communicated clearly, creatively and effectively to church-wide and specific audiences.

  • Ensure high-quality and highest impact communications are created for both internal and external audiences.

  • Supervise all areas of social media, create fresh and engaging content, campaigns, and keep the church up-to-date with the latest social media and online trends.

  • Manage website written content.

  • Plan, draft, prepare and execute weekly newsletters.

  • Cultivate, lead and manage a team of communications ministry volunteers (writers, photographers, social media, etc.)

  • Create and implement a strategy for becoming more visible in the community.

  • Keep ears open to stories of life-change within the church.  Develop ways to creatively communicate those stories via video, interviews, newsletter, etc.

  • Will have strong writing, editing, and proofreading skills.  This individual serves as the "eyes" for all things print and electronic, looking for clear communication, brand presence, and consistency.

  • Will effectively handle crisis communications with the direction of leadership.

  • Be actively engaged in the life of the church by living out the mission and vision of Christ Fellowship.

 

Requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree in marketing, communications, journalism, or equivalent work experience.

  • Some academic work in theology preferred.

  • At least 2 years experience leading a team of communications/marketing professionals.

  • Excellent communicator (both written and verbal) and creative thinker with the ability to use data to inform strategy.

  • An ability to manage the different "seasons" of the church, to lean into work when periods are particularly busy and lean into family and other responsibilities during the rest of the year.

  • Strong attention to detail.

  • Familiarity with the inbound marketing methodology.

  • Demonstrates proficiency in marketing automation software (preferably Hootsuite).

  • Intermediate knowledge of online advertising platforms, particularly Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

  • Keen understanding of modern branding techniques.

  • Demonstrates understanding of communications to a Christian church community.

  • Ability to proofread content and check for both theological and grammatical errors as needed.

  • Preferred skills: Adobe Creative Suite.

  • Growing Christian faith and character.

  • A commitment to the mission of the church.

  • Understanding of and willingness to serve within the doctrinal commitments of the church.

 

If this sounds like the right fit for you, please apply and attach your resume.  Please include a link to an online portfolio, website, or any other links where we can view samples of your work.  This position is onsite at our campus in Palmetto Bay, FL.
