On Friday, March 31, George Johnson Jr., assistant director of communication for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America, was elected to serve on the national board of directors for the Religion Communicators Council. Johnson will serve a two-year term beginning this April.
The Religion Communicators Council (RCC), founded in 1929, is an international interfaith association of religion communicators at work in print and electronic communication, marketing and in public relations.
The RCC provides opportunities for religion communicators to learn from each other. Together, RCC members promote excellence in the communication of religious faith and values in the public arena and encourage understanding among religious and faith groups.
RCC includes 13 local chapters in various cities around the country.
Local chapters meet regularly for programming and networking. Those not located near a local chapter are considered members-at-large.
Nationally RCC offers a yearly convention, complete with exciting keynote speakers and challenging workshops. Highlights of the annual convention are the awards ceremonies where work within the church and in secular media is honored. RCC also supports its members through a newsletter, Counselor, which often includes helpful tips and information.
