I am pleased to announce the decision to promote Jim Naughton , who has served well in the position of Director of Communications to a position of broader scope; “Canon for Communications and Advancement.” This new position and title recognize Jim's outstanding performance as well as his dedication and interest in the areas of parish growth, outreach and marketing.Among other things, Jim is the keeper of the daily episcopalian.
The other expanded aspect of Jim's work will build on his passion for issues of evangelism and church growth. I have asked him to look for additional topics that might lend themselves to dialogical opportunities such as the Church Marketing 101 series he convened. More broadly, I have asked Jim to dedicate a significant amount of time making and nurturing relationships with persons and organizations around the nation and then bring their ideas and methods of church growth and marketing to our diocese.
Congratulations to Jim on his new position.
