In this competitive information age, finding creative ways to tell the American Baptist home mission story can be challenging. Danny Ellison’s role includes designing magazines, brochures, newsletters, conference displays, and other mission support materials. In addition, he works on American Baptist Home Mission Societies’ Web site and handles special projects, which include the banner and prayer cards used during a peace walk at the 1999 Biennial Meeting.

“Our ultimate goal is to communicate the mission of American Baptist Home Mission Societies,” says Ellison, who finds his work personally rewarding. “The design and layout of each piece should support a message that is clear and consistent with American Baptist Home Mission Societies’ overall vision for mission service.”

Looking to the future, Ellison sees increasing opportunities for communicating the work of home mission. “More and more people are using technology,” he notes, “and that has become an excellent method for spreading our mission message.”

Integrating newer forms of communication — such as the Web, power point presentations, and video conferencing — with more traditional printed pieces will be Ellison’s future focus. He is committed to maintaining professionalism and integrity in all American Baptist Home Mission Societies communication media.
