Why does a church need a logo?

Even churches need a logo!

Church logo, yes your church will need one as well.


Marketing and branding your church logo.

First of all, let us consider the terms “marketing” and “branding”. I promise that they are not dirty words, and they really aren’t as scary as you might think. The American Marketing Association defines marketing as a function and set of processes an organisation uses to create, communicate and deliver value to its customers.


Furthermore, it is the way in which an organisation manages its relationship with its customers. For instance,  let’s imagine you change the word organisation to church, and customers to community. Most probably, you can see how marketing can be a relevant strategy for your church when creating your church logo.

Church logs come in many shapes and colors and the one thing that remains constant is the symbol of the Holy Cross.
A church logo is the very thing to get to effectively put your message out there and keep up with modern times.


American Marketing Association

So let’s go back to the American Marketing Association again, however this time with their definition of a brand. Essentially, this is any feature that distinguishes one seller’s goods or services from another seller’s. In other words, branding is about identity and identification. Your brand (your church logo) communicates to your audience who you are and why you are relevant to them. Furthermore, I must show you our page on branding which can be very useful Branding page by TLC 


Again we can see how this would be relevant to a church. Ultimately marketing and branding are about perception. How does your community perceive you? Look for instance, at all the symbols out there. Churches are full of them. Religious symbols 

These three church logo designs that we created at the TLC are have a certain shape.
Logo designs for churches can have all sorts of colors and shapes. Gold is often used in the design.


Therefore, even if your church doesn’t have a marketing and branding strategy at present, the community will already have a perception of your church from what it does, or doesn’t do, within that community. In addition, this may be positive or negative, accurate or inaccurate. By using marketing and branding your church can better take control over that perception, beach you will need a church logo you see. 


What is your church identity?

The first step is to determine your church’s identity. However, to do this you should consider these kinds of questions:


Who makes up the core of your congregation?


Who are you trying to attract?


What message are you trying to get across?


Why should people come to your church?


Is your church large, small, traditional, modern, formal, informal etc.?

More examples of church logo designs created for the religious sector.
When creating an identity for your church, be open to how you want the logo to look like and what you think will attract your followers. Looks are important as well. Even for churches.


Condense your church’s identity

Finally, once you can answer these questions you can then move forward with communicating this identity, and one important element of this communication is a church logo.


Furthermore, a logo can condense your church’s identity into an easily recognisable image that can be used across multiple forms of media to create a consistent brand. As a highly visual species humans respond well to the language of signs and symbols, and we remember them easily.

Church logo identities that are not traditional but still manages to catch you attention.
Different religions have different message. Concentrate on the main thing you would like your disciples to know.


Spread your message with a church logo

A well-designed church logo along with an effective branding and marketing strategy can help your church and its message reach a wider audience by positively and accurately communicating its identity. This quote from WorshipTechie.com puts it best “A church that’s indifferent to how it is perceived by the community is as damaging as one who only cares about its image. In addition, a church logo that has vision and cares about spreading the Gospel should properly manage its appearance in a way that draws and invites new hearers.” See our recently created church logos here:  Church portfolio
