American Media Services Interactive Announces Creation of Ministry Division to Assist Church Organizations Worldwide
American Media Services Interactive announces the formation of its Ministry Division created to provide enhanced online initiatives to churches and church organizations through media strategies, content availability and online technological platforms. The division is in response to the need by religious organizations to remain current, viable and impactful through the use of online platforms.
"Although organizations and churches have been among the earliest adopters of emerging media opportunities, they continue to seek new methods to increase member retention, engagement outreach and membership growth," said Charles Andrew Whatley, President of American Media Services Interactive. "With our Ministry Division, we have assembled a team with technical as well as clerical experience to answer the need."To head the division, Jim Richard has been named Director. Richard, a former leadership strategist, brings years of experience in the marketing and ministry fields to his position. "Our team not only understands the technical aspects of providing online initiatives; but also the unique needs of faith communities worldwide."
The AMSi Ministry team also includes Frank Seignious an ordained minister for the past 28 years and a retired JAG attorney. "Digital media can be a valuable tool in maximizing the ability to have kingdom impact and enhance the church's assets of people and abilities," said Seignious. "Reaching citizens of remote countries or the young people in our own parishes; all are challenges of the church today." The group looks to the use of internet delivery of audio and video content to assist churches and church organizations to communicate on a digital level.
The services of the Ministry Division include creating Christian music format channels for websites, customized ministry branded channels, workflow solutions and content management systems to better manage and measure digital media assets.
