Since 2006, Lisa Korhnak has played a critical role in making the Arcola Church one of the fastest-growing Methodist churches in Virginia. Using her background in strategic integrated marketing she has designed three websites for the church (the current redesign is mobile friendly), led and assisted in various capital campaigns and silent auctions that have raised nearly $1 million dollars (a 2015 recent ‘mini-campaign’ raised $136k, which was 36% over the goal — and a 2016 ‘mini-campaign’ with a goal of raising $75k, raised over $90k). She has produced and directed videos, directed graphic design efforts, written articles and other copy, increased awareness through SEO, social media, media buys and grass roots marketing campaigns. Not only is Lisa a marketing director, she is also a lay counselor, congregational care leader and master net-worker who uses her skills to connect with neighbors, area schools, hospitals, counseling centers and other nonprofits. As such, she has developed a team of 15 care ministries (with over 100 dedicated volunteers) that provide support and outreach to both the community and the congregation. She is included in council decisions and continues to work with the church in fulfilling their mission of outreach, love and transforming the world for the better.
Ami Low has been instrumental in the growth of the church by lending her expert, award-winning design ideas to all the ministries, events and hugely-successful capital campaigns. Her keen eye and creative ideas encourage and give hope to others.
