Client Spotlight: Church Marketing University

Focus: Helping churches implement marketing systems that bring new guests every week

Scope: Brand messaging, copywriting, project management, and more


Our Client Spotlight Series is a collection of blogs designed to shine a light on the great work our clients are doing and highlight the various ways we can support nonprofits and small businesses like yours.

No church wants to be the best-kept secret in town. 

Our friends at Church Marketing University (CMU) know that long gone are the days of throwing some money at a few mailers and seeing a huge number of people show up the next Sunday.  

It’s hard to figure out what works anymore, and you don’t have the luxury of spending all day exploring new solutions.

CMU helps churches that need a simple path forward to reach more people each week.

Our Work Together

In our work with Ryan and the team at Church Marketing University, we focused on adding value to a community of over 20,000 church leaders.

Through lead-generating resources like the Ultimate Guest Gift Guide, valuable articles, social media curation, and marketing strategy, this membership-based business achieved multiple goals.




“I started working with Evan back about ten years ago. I quickly noticed how great he is at helping organizations reach their goals. When I started my own business a few years ago, Evan was the first person we hired to help us build the business. You are going to love working with Evan and you are going to quickly see how much value he brings to the table!”

Today, I work alongside organizations as a StoryBrand Certified Guide, so that they communicate the right message and then infuse it throughout all their marketing–from strategy and copy to websites and fundraising.
