    When we launched our new branding we created a simple style guide because of all the abuses our old logo received. However the old logo is still around 2 years later on things that are expensive to change like the gym floor and the outside signs. We’ve also created an official letter head word document template, an require all public communications to go through proofreading before they are sent out.

    We’re going to be making one in 2012. It’s going to go on my Finish List. Do you have examples of other churches’ style guides as well?

    Wow. How condescending to HALF THE CHURCH.

  • oldmangeorge

    Oh! Brian Kaufman, your douchebaggery is perfect. Keep up the good work in making Christians look like a bunch of backwards thinking misogynists.

    You might want to avoid using the term “lame,” because there are many lame people whose physical handicaps have no bearing on their being welcome among the children of God.

    Have a nice day and love God and God’s children (including 51% of them who are women!) more tomorrow than you do today, which shouldn’t be hard, considering how little you love them today.

    Oh Madison, caring about the lame. You must be an emotion driven woman. Dismiss!

    So THAT’s what the church has been up to since I left. Curious…nothing about helping the poor and destitute…just something about looking cool to be able to connect with its followers. Oh, and I guess Christian women need snazzier logo styling in order for their ministries to be relevant to God.

    Not snazzier. Snazzier almost rhymes with bedazzlier. Obviously women need to be more masculine… wait, I’m sure that’s not allowed either. Uh… I guess women just shouldn’t get involved with any public front on the church. Yeah. They should stay behind a screen and let the men do the work.

    As a man, I don’t think it’s ever been a lack of masculine aesthetic that made me shy away from church. It’s that church is so detached from real life, and so often slickly packaged and sold without a real sense of authenticity.
