Professional faith communicators from around North America and other regions find collegiality in this group, and we encourage you to join.

In addition to our online community, we host a weekly support webinar where progressive faith communicators can engage with our team members and fellow attendees to address questions, share insights, and discuss best practices. Topics range from website design and social media marketing to branding and messaging, all with a focus on empowering communicators to effectively convey messages of justice and liberation.
