How to Use Jingle Jam at Your Children’s Ministry


Promotion


One of the most important parts of ensuring a successful church event is promoting it within your local community to ensure that all existing and potential ministry members know all the vital details before attending.

With Jingle Jam, you can spread the word about your Christmas event effortlessly with the included postcards and flyers to hand out at church or put through doors along nearby streets. The add-on media package also features a social media promotion kit for Facebook and Instagram so that you can reach even more families in your community. 


Planning


Organizing your staff and allocating tasks can be one of the most challenging aspects of planning a church Christmas event, which is why Jingle Jam includes a director’s checklist and volunteer team description pack so that you can ensure every detail is attended to.

The free package even includes an ultra-simple, step-by-step instruction guide and decorating guide for staff and leaders to follow when organizing the event so that everything runs smoothly. 


Media and Graphics


Creating a spectacular media show with amazing graphics is an excellent way to take your church event to the next level, but this may sound difficult if you have limited technical skills or resources.

However, Jingle Jam includes a selection of sound effects and graphics slides, with extra images and videos included with the extended media package. It even offers performance tracks and live lyric videos so that church members can rejoice together through music and song to celebrate the birth of Christ. 


Volunteer Resources 


Ministry volunteers are one of the most important parts of your Christmas event, as they assist with organizing the smallest details of the celebration while also creating a welcoming environment for attendees.

To support your hard-working volunteers, the Jingle Jam extended package includes a selection of essential volunteer resources, such as training meeting notes to help staff feel secure and confident in their work. It also comes with fun t-shirt designs and a thank you postcard to show your volunteers how much you appreciate their efforts. 


Videos


Videos are one of the best ways to create an unforgettable event that engages young church members. The free Jingle Jam package offers a high-quality promotion video for your ministry to share on social media, while the Media and Graphics option also includes a fun and comprehensive Christmas story video to set the scene for your event, alongside a virtual Jingle Jam experience video with an accompanying parent guide to get the whole family involved.
