How We Serve
Communication Services works to provide consistent, quality communication and support services for the Columbia Union Conference and its 12 entities, through training, consulting and information sharing. We use the Internet, email, print, video, social media, marketing and promotion and presentations at camp meetings and other events to keep members informed about news, information and resources for effective ministry.
Communication Services also coordinates public and media relations campaigns, strategic planning and crisis management efforts.
