For churches to really want and need the RISO ComColor Printer in their church they need to be printing more than the church bulletin. If that is their primary printing project, the color copier they have will do just fine.
But if they are printing connection cards, envelopes for fund-raising, children’s materials, specialized newsletters, outreach postcards and invitations, flyer and bulletin inserts–when they are printing all the materials they need to print to grow their church in numbers and their people in spiritual maturity they are doing a LOT of printing and their copier realistically simply can’t handle it all in terms of time, cost, and reliability.
But many churches aren’t printing all they should be because they don’t realize the significant difference increased and effective communications can make in their church.
This is where my ministry of Effective Church Communications can help you and the churches you work with. The source for the help and resources churches need is the website www.effectivechurchcom.com. Below are links to all the sections and materials I’m talking about here in the Podcast:
This is a membership site and here are some of the things that churches will get when they become a member:
#1 TEMPLATES: there are hundreds of templates for church communicators, for Easter alone there are children’s materials, connection cards, outreach postcards, follow up materials and much more. The template files have both ready-to-print PDFs and editable MS Publisher files. These are complete designs with copyright free images, and all the work of writing, type and image selection, layout and proofing done for church communicators (and for you to use as samples!).
CLICK HERE to go to the Template section on the ECC Site
Training, tips, and resources that go with the templates are also part of the site.
#2 BOOKS: these are full-length books that are also sold through amazon.com in paperback format and as downloadable e-books for those who aren’t members. There is nothing like these anywhere else that are written specifically for church communicators. For an example of how these will help you, the book on Connection Cards will not only help churches connect with visitors, pastor their people and grow their church, but the back of the book highly recommends both the RISO ComColor and/or digital duplicators to print these.

#3 Weekly updates: This notifies churches of new materials on the site and reminds them of what they need to be printing. For you, this is a constant reminder that they need to be creating MORE communications!
There are many other benefits of membership, but these two features alone I hope help you see how useful it is for your churches.
