Meet a church clarity volunteer: jess kotnour

Tim Schraeder

Marketing and Communications Strategist

Having spent over a decade working with Evangelical megachurches, I know how much attention they give to how and what they communicate, intentionally and unintentionally. When churches say, "come as you are," they need to actually mean it. Unfortunately, many churches adopt the mindset that by not making or publicly stating policies they are opening they are building bridges, but sadly they are doing more harm to whom their unspoken policies impact. I believe that clarity is reasonable, that God is the author of clarity not confusion, and that of any other organization in the world, the Church should be the clearest in their message. I hope the work of Church Clarity will help create a spirit of transparency and honesty where it's needed most.
