    One of the primary roles of the BGCO Communications
    Team is to communicate the impact Oklahoma Baptists are
    having through the Cooperative Program as they reach the
    world for Christ.
    The Communications Team brought the experiences of Falls
    Creek to a statewide television audience in 2005. The Falls
    Creek TV broadcast, recorded live during the final weeks of
    summer 2004, was rated number one and number two during
    regular and prime time TV programming. FamilyNet also aired
    the program nationwide.
    The Communications Team represented Oklahoma Baptists on
    numerous critical issues through nearly 400 media interviews
    throughout the year. Stories covered include Oklahoma Baptists’
    response to natural disasters in the United States and abroad as
    well as a variety of social and moral issues impacting the state.
    The number of churches with active Ethics and Religious
    Liberty Committees nearly doubled during the year following
    the distribution of a new ERLC Action Guide, which was
    designed to help churches take an active role in making their
    voices known regarding moral and ethical issues that affect
    Christian life.
    Many churches took advantage of the Edna McMillan
    Oklahoma State Missions Offering materials produced by the
    Communications Team in 2005. Materials included an
    interactive CD-ROM, informative videos on DVD and a
    variety of printed materials aimed at educating Oklahoma
    Baptists on state missions offering impact.
    A new interactive BGCO Web site, to premier in early 2006, is
    in development as an online resource for pastors, staff and
    church leaders; assists the local church and
    believers in Christian development.
    A growing number of churches discovered the cost benefit of
    using the BGCO’s printing services for materials such as
    brochures, newsletters, stationery and bulletin inserts.
    Baptist Messenger
    continues to be among the top five
    largest convention news journals in the nation and the third
    largest weekly newspaper in the state.
    Nearly 150 churches and 12 associations utilize the
    special edition pages for their newsletter.
    In 2005, the
    Baptist Messenger
    introduced an expanded
    service, “Messenger Wrap,” which allows churches the option
    of wrapping the outside of the
    Baptist Messenger
    with a full
    color newsletter, printed at the BGCO’s affordable rates.
