West Missouri’s Communications Director oversees the communications functions of the diocese which include the news and events website – New Spirit, the church administration site, the main diocesan website, and diocesan social media channels.

The Communications Director is available to provide direct support to congregations and their staff members or volunteers in charge of communications. The offerings include annual presentations, presentations at the convention Gathering, and resources distributed via a Facebook Group.  Help is available to advise churches on building and maintaining their websites.
