Webinar: Foundations for an Effective Communications Department

A Peer-2-Peer Webinar for Communications and Marketing Professionals


Your organization may be doing great “heart” work, but how does it compare to the outward appearance of your message? In this webinar, we’ll look at the importance of sharing the heart of your organization’s ministry with your audience. We’ll explore a wide range of functions and tools that make up an effective communications department and ensure that your organization has a dynamic and unified message.

We’ll introduce you to our “Outward Heart Matrix.” This matrix provides a robust look at the many moving parts of a communications department. It has more than 100 distinct items organized into eye-opening and insightful high-level categories. We also recognize that every communication team has its own strengths and gifts which will impact what you can execute well. We’ll help you consider the non-negotiables of your communication strategies as well as areas you may need to concede until the right people are trained or recruited.


Dave Wied, along with his wife, Alissa, are the founders of Outward Heart (www.outwardheart.org). Outward Heart comes alongside existing and emerging ministries to help equip them to effectively share their purpose and passion. Dave and Alissa’s entrepreneurial spirits and formal design training give them a unique blend of creative and administrative perspectives to serve a wide range of organizations. Dave previously worked in marketing and communications for Wycliffe Bible Translators and with a marketing agency.
