We Are A Christian Advertising Marketing Agency that Specializes in Churches
To fulfill our part of the Great Commission in the local church through digital technology.
We hold the church's health above our need for revenue and guide them to what they need when they need it, even when that delays them from retaining us.
We believe in hard work, respect, candor, trust, and we put others before ourselves. We tackle tough issues with mutual respect.
We create and source the latest and greatest technology.
We make informed decisions using concrete analytics, rather than relying on guesswork or hunches.
We strive to provide thoughtful and prompt answers to client questions within one business day. We strive to respond to internal communications in a timely fashion.
We immediately offer “make goods” when a mistake has been made, or we’ve failed to deliver on a promise.
We slow down and do things right the first time and never shortcut a step in a multi-step process. We triple check our work product.

Why We Do Church Marketing
At Missional Marketing, we want to align our agenda with that of Jesus. We want to help churches across North America (and beyond) find lost people and bring them home to a restored relationship with the God who loves them. We believe the local church is a beacon of hope for the world as we represent Jesus Christ to the broken, hurting and misdirected.
We’ve built a team of extremely talented people who could use their talents in a variety of ways, but have chosen to engage in Kingdom-centered work. We believe that helping churches and church leaders to leverage modern digital tools will multiply the number of people finding hope through a relationship with Jesus.
- We value strong communication with our clients.
- We strive to produce work on time.
- We keep our clients informed on budgetary progress.
For several of our more dynamic and complex services, such as web development or On-Page SEO, we provide the client with a weekly progress report via email. We also provide periodic written reports for our subscription and digital advertising services.
If a client has retained us for any one of our subscription-based services, we meet with them every sixty days to review their analytics dashboard and make recommendations with the goal of increasing web traffic and conversions.
If something goes wrong, we make ourselves available to talk. We take pride in our standards of accountability and don’t hide behind emails when resolving any issues that arise during the course of our work. Instead, we look to speak directly with our clients and find the best possible solution for meeting their needs. All of our Account Managers have the authority to approve “make-good” work in the cases where we’ve made a mistake.
Each of our major areas of service has an assigned partner who acts as a Principal in Charge, an Account Manager, and a Project Manager. This ensures meaningful forward momentum on all of our engagements.
