After I watched the 2 videos from Connection Pointe Christian Church that Christie Wickline posted, I thought I’d share 1 story that appeared in Faith & Fitness Magazine last year. It too includes a video along with the pictures, story and music. It’s all at: As a magazine that produces content I’m always looking for what may make the next great story of God’s faithfulness. So, I frequently post a simple “WHAT’S YOUR STORY” graphic I created and make it easy for readers to text “mystory” to 22828 (enabling them to share their story and subscribe to our newsletters). Anthony Vaccarella’s story is a great example of how beautifully story telling can be a part of the marketing AND ministry you do. It was actually his wife that contacted us. They had no idea how it would ultimately come together. You as a CSRF leader may not see yourself as the facilitator of this storytelling kind of ministry - BUT we all need to do this, bringing other members of the church staff and community to contribute to it. As you know, God doesn’t just have 1 story for your church to share. Like the mercies of God they are new every morning. So, the church that wants to market their CSRF ministry will get into the regular business of telling stories. Brad Bloom, Publisher, Faith & Fitness Magazine, Lifestyle Media Group
