Michelle’s Report: August 2017

Michelle Matson was the “Communications Animator” for Kootenay Presbytery last summer. Kootenay Presbytery received a grant for a summer student to research the best and most effective communications practices for Kootenay Presbytery. Her purpose was to conduct a research project and report on communications best practices for Kootenay Presbytery and its 15 constituent congregations.
In doing so, Michelle met with many folks in a number of congregations to seek information about what was presently happening in their church regarding communication and how might we do it better.

Here is a copy of her report:   Michelle’s report  Please, have a read.
