O’Mara | Brodie

Communication is everything we do, say or show. We are constantly communicating, whether we mean to or not. As Christians and United Methodists, we need to understand how important communication is to our goal of making disciples for Jesus Christ.

Technology is ever changing and as such the tools for communicating are constantly evolving. To be effective communicators in a digital world, we need to learn and embrace new forms of communication and technology. The simple truth is that brochures and newsletters just don’t cut it anymore.

If you need any assistance with your church or district communication, please contact:

Communications Coordinator Dan O’Mara at or 803-786-9486, Extension 260

Production Coordinator Matt Brodie at or 803-786-9486, Extension 265
