WHO WE ARE

InChrist Communications is a national, integrated communications agency, serving faith-based clients. Our stories succeed in impacting today’s media environment through savvy and hardworking brand solutions. We analyze, strategize, integrate, navigate, create and magnify messages about brands that deserve to be heard.

All ICC marketing efforts begin with, and are centered around, a focused brand strategy and content messaging map. Messages are delivered to achieve cross-channel "horizonal frequency" and compounded uptake through our proprietary Brand LIFT methodology and integrated through a tightly woven combination of traditional, digital, video and other media platforms and strategies.  

Our integrated digital communications reflect the importance of intersecting and engaging audiences on their platform-centric media journeys, which include social media, digital advertising, video, email marketing, influencer marketing, web and more.  

ICC media relations efforts include a strategic plan that utilizes a variety of tactics including: media alerts, news releases, feature story placement and media databases. We help clients manage their brand image in both proactive and crisis situations.  

 Donor development is the engine that pulls the ministry train. Cultivation looks very different among agencies who help nonprofits raise money, regardless if the experience is offline or online. ICC’s team takes a data-intensive approach to acquiring major and rank-and-file donors, converting them to first-time donors, and then creatively move donors up to higher levels of giving.

SOME OF OUR CLIENTS

OUR VALUES

ICC is a small, close-knit team of Christ-followers and experienced media professionals who think smartly and differently to lift your storytelling out of the sea of sameness many brands experience in today’s media environment.

ICC is a lean and flat company that takes pride in stewardship of its resource which in turn can provide a great value to its clients. For special projects and clients ICC has the network and flexibility to assemble specialized teams of professionals specifically tailored for the project.

ICC's name comes from 2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new.” (NKJ)
