STEP 9. CREATING A MEDIA PLAN

A general list of instructions and information for creating a media plan is available in The Planning Kit. Handbook chapters 1-3 includes specific, detailed instructions on training, target audience, expression options, budgeting, media options and customization.

STEP 10: OPEN HOUSE MONTH

United Methodist Open House Month, reinforcing the promise of open hearts, open minds and doors made by national spots airing in September. The month also marks the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Igniting Ministry asks that your congregation plan a “Remembering 9/11” service of remembrance for those lost in the national tragedy. Your church could be a place the community will gather to remember and to pray for wisdom, comfort and healing.
