Rev. Stephen Goldsmith
Stephen Goldsmith is a husband and father with a passion for creating bridges that help others reach their greatest potential. Prior to being appointed as the Lead Pastor of Journey of Faith UMC, Stephen toured as a professional musician with noted Gospel Music artists including Fred Hammond, Donald Lawrence, Yolanda Adams, Michelle Williams (of Destiny’s Child), Marvin Sapp, and more. Stephen received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Audio Acoustics with an emphasis in Audio Recording Engineering from Columbia College Chicago and possesses 20yrs of music production experience. In addition, he has gathered 34yrs of experience as a worship leader with a passion for facilitating worship that meets traditional and contemporary preferences.
As a veteran worship director, I will work with leadership teams to develop and employ practical methods for fruitful worship ministries. Thus, fruitful worship ministries incorporate music ministry that is contextually fruitful. The pandemic forced a great majority of congregations to develop online worship experiences. Having a production background afforded an opportunity to identify necessary equipment for our audio/visual team at Journey of Faith to improve our online presence as a result. Moreover, as a ministry specialist, I have an opportunity to help our sister churches identify practical marketing and branding strategies, radical hospitality, and mission-minded community engagement.

Marketing your church can be an effective way to reach both the churched and unchurched; attract and invite new members; bring awareness to the ministries, growth and discipleship opportunities, community engagement, and resources; and introduce the church to new and existing neighbors. I’ve worked with churches for more than 20 years to help discover new and creative ways to connect with their congregation and mission field, to help tell and share their unique story in ways that generates excitement, and to develop contextual marketing strategies with attainable goals and next steps.

How a faith community projects themselves is important. Does your church brand well? In other words, is your crew energized with swag, gear, shirts, promotional materials? People bring new people. Putting tangible tools in their hands matters. In the sink-or-swim, fast-paced life in campus ministry, Greg knows all-to-well how good marketing and branding can attract new people to your team, so that they may also meet Jesus in a life-changing way, again and again.
