VIDEO OVERVIEW of ECC Member Benefits
TEMPLATES: The TEMPLATES are both seasonal (for every holiday the church celebrates) and also ones for basic church tasks and misc. communications. The church communications featured are designed, laid out, with the artwork and type selected. You have the TEMPLATES in both PDFs that you can download and print as is or editable either with MS Publisher (the majority of the Templates) or MS Word. This benefit alone is worth the price of monthly membership because they will save you many hours of work and you can cost-effectively print them in the church office or through any online printing company. CLICK HERE to go to the TEMPLATE SECTION:
GREAT IDEA SWAP: These are idea files shared by church communicators all over the world. Everyone can see them, but on ECC Members can download them and if there is an editable file, use that. CLICK HERE to go to the GREAT IDEA SWAP section.
BOOKS, our Church Communicator's Library: These are both full-length books and shorter collections of articles in e-book format. Many of these are sold on amazon.com as paperbacks, but all of the books written put out by Effective Church Communications are available in e-book format for Effective Church Communication Members. With ECC Membership you have permission to print and share excerpts of the books with whatever church audience you choose (staff meetings, etc.). CLICK HERE to go to the ECC Bookstore—from there you can go to the Members Book Section for Downloads. You won't be able to see the book links if you aren't a member.
All of the Memberships in Effective Church Communications give Members access to the same content above. The only difference between memberships is that discounts are offered for Yearly and Lifetime Memberships.
ECC Member bulk book discount: if your church or ministry would like to order paperback versions of books from Effective Church Communications in quantities of 5 or more can get a 25% or more discount for books, which is great if you want to study them as a staff or for church communicator conferences, etc. Once you are a member, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get your discount code and ordering information.
BONUS, Shared Memberships: unlike most training or membership sites where each person needs to buy individual memberships with Effective Church Communications, you can buy ONE membership and it can be shared by ALL the people in the same church or business. HOWEVER—YOU MUST use the same USERNAME and PASSWORD that were used to sign up for the account. Be very careful that you guard these—it's a mess if people attempt to change them, but you will save a lot of money and get many more people trained with this BONUS benefit.
Automatic Updates: With Membership in Effective Church Communications, you will get automatic updates of new materials, templates, Great Idea Swap samples and training as soon as new material is posted on the site.
