#AskAdam with Justin Dean: Does my church need a Public Relations strategy, and what needs to be included.
March 23, 2018 Adam McLaughlin with Justin Dean

Not all public relations strategies are in case of emergency. Maybe your church is working to get an event out to the public and using the media for that, but the time that we feel it the most may be when we need to communicate a delicate situation or clarify a misunderstanding.

At the pivotal moment when you need to provide clarity, it's too late to start building a public relations platform. Today on #AskAdam, I'm talking with Justin Dean, author of PR Matters (formerly of Mars Hill church).

Justin shares how to build a PR strategy, why it's important for a church of any size and ideas for building relationships with media outlets in your area for crisis and non-crisis related topics.
