The Religion Communicators Council (RCC) is an interfaith association of religion communicators at work in print and electronic communication, marketing and public relations. The Nashville Chapter meets monthly at rotating locations to learn about other faith traditions, learn from fellow communicators and gain professional development opportunities.
Due to the onset of COVID-19, RCC members have been meeting virtually, for the most part, since March.
The October meeting took place over Zoom with special guest David Crumm, the Co-Founder and Editor of ReadtheSpirit.com. Crumm is known nationwide to journalists and authors who cover the impact of religion and cross-cultural issues on our world today. He has nearly 40 years as a journalist, during which he has won top awards and is a senior fellow with several universities and nonprofits, including the University of Michigan Knight-Wallace Journalism Fellowship and the Washington DC-based East West Center.
“Mr. Crumm spoke passionately about story telling, its history and purpose and how it relates back to faith,” says Julie Brinker, RCC Communications Coordinator and Community Affairs Director of the Church of Scientology, “He was incredibly inspirational and we were so glad to have him present to RCC.”
The RCC has members from every faith group and walk of life including Baha’is, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Scientologists, Sikhs, Hindus and more. The RCC, founded in 1929, is an association of communications professionals who work for and with a diverse group of faith-based organizations in the areas of communications, public relations, advertising and development.
The RCC provides opportunities for communicators to learn from each other. Together, RCC members promote excellence in the communication of faith and values in the public arena. For more information about the Religion Communicators Council, visit religioncommunicators.org/nashville-chapter.
