Blog Transforming Communication – Life Teen and Flocknote by Joel Stepanek How would your ministry transform if you could: text your teens and email your parents all from one communication tool? capture all their replies in one, organized place? do it all safely and in compliance with Safe Environment guidelines? save money doing it? and get exclusive, pre-loaded Life Teen content (all you do is edit and send!) to engage your teens and inform your parents? With Life Teen’s new partnership with Flocknote, now you can! We live in a world that is rapidly changing. The way we shop, exchange information, and communicate has become increasingly digital and mobile. Technology can bring challenges, but it also brings opportunity. How radically different would your ministry look if you could, with a push of a button, notify parents of an upcoming retreat deadline? Imagine teenagers checking their phone to see an encouraging text message, challenging them with a scripture passage or main theme from youth group? What if you could seamlessly communicate safely with parents, teenagers, and your Core Members all with one interface? The way we communicate with each other has changed, and there are more options than ever. We want to continually serve you in ministry, which is why we are excited for a new partnership this year: Life Teen and Flocknote are partnering to bring parishes some of the most effective youth ministry content alongside one of the most effective parish communication tools available in 2015-2016. Parishes that subscribe to Life Teen and/or Edge will be able to receive 50% off their Flocknote subscription for the first 6 months. Flocknote’s interface allows you to safely text and communicate with teenagers in a way that follows diocesan safe environment guidelines and best practices, while providing a powerful email interface that puts critical information in the hands of your parents. As an added bonus, we’ve created exclusive content for Flocknote to support our Life Nights. With a few clicks from your Flocknote interface, you can pre-load Life Teen texts and emails we’ve created to help you engage your teens. After your Sunday Life Night, text out a key scripture or main point on a Wednesday to challenge and encourage your teens. We also provide you with our pre-written emails, complete with beautiful graphic content and discussion questions, to send to parents immediately after the Life Night. Transform the way you communicate in your ministry with Flocknote. The message is worth it. This exclusive offer is available to our subscribing parishes. Not a subscribing parish?
