Introduction: Effectively using AI to support your church communications 

Artificial intelligence, or AI, can seem a bit daunting at first, but it actually offers a wide range of tools that can help you more effectively communicate with your congregation in a fraction of the normal time. Below, we’ve crafted a helpful combination of 50 detailed prompts and bots you can use to create high-quality content for a variety of specific purposes. These resources can help with everything from social media and blog posts to newsletters, website content, fundraising materials and more, and we’ll walk you through the process of creating content with them – even if you’re new to AI.

Glossary of Terms

We listed a few terms that will help you better understand the prompts below.  

 

LLMs

Large language models (LLM) are very smart robots that can read, understand and write text. They learn from reading lots of books, articles and websites, then they use what they've learned to help answer questions or write things down in a way that makes sense. They frequently are set up in a chat format, where a user types a prompt, then receives an answer. Prominent LLMs include: Open AI, Gemini, Claude, Poe and Grok. All of these have some type of free version you can use. 

 

Prompt

In the world of AI, a prompt is what you type into get the robot to generate text, answer a question or perform a task based on your input. Most of the items below are prompts. In some of these prompts, there will be specific details about your church that you need to enter for the AI to better understand what you’re talking about. These prompts can be entered into any LLM of your choosing.  

 

Bots

Bots are a little easier to use than many of the advanced prompts below. The reason is that they operate on a set of contained and predefined parameters. When you paste in the text to an LLM, you will then receive instructions for what details you need to enter for the AI to create a unique piece of content for your church. The disadvantage of bots is that they have a harder time doing functions outside their predefined parameters. For this reason, we built advanced prompts to handle some tasks, while using bots for others. Advanced prompts power these bots, so we may use prompts to describe parts of them, particularly the instructions given to the LLM, as these are technically prompts. 

Poe’s Free Custom Bots

Because Custom GPTs cost money and we know churches like yourself are on a tight budget, we built the equivalent on Poe. The platform has a free version, which allows you to use customized bots. Poe is an LLM by itself, but it allows users to use other LLMs such as Claude, Grok and Chat GPT. Once you sign up for an account, you can use any of our Poe bots for free. 

GPTs

Custom GPTs are specialized versions of Open AI’s tools. They focus on a narrow set of instructions and tasks to ensure the large language model creates content that fits the particular focus of the Custom GPT’s commands. Custom GPTs are a feature exclusive to Open AI and require a premium account to use. To access custom GPTs, follow the steps below. 

 

Step 1. Go to the Chat GPT Store

The Chat GPT Store is an online marketplace where you can find various tools and enhancements for your AI applications. Accessing the store is straightforward: simply visit the website and browse through the available GPTs by selecting “Explore GPTs” on the left-hand side. The store offers a range of tools designed to boost the effectiveness of your AI-generated content and many are free. You will need to subscribe to OpenAI to access these, but the cost is low – about $20 a month. 

Step 2. Search for a Prompt Enhancer

Next, search for a prompt enhancer. Many of them have been created and most of those that we’ve tried are very effective. At Vanco, we built one, Vanco Prompt Enhancer, which you can use if you’d like.  

Step 3. Why Prompt Enhancers Work

Enhancer’s like Vanco’s use advanced prompting techniques like Zero-Shot, Few-Shot and Chain-of-Thought to generate thorough prompts that can be copy and pasted in any AI tool. 

 

Using Free Prompts

Each one of these prompts is engineered using advanced prompting techniques. If you want to create content for free, all you need to do is sign up for a free Open AI, Gemini, Grok, Poe , Llama or other AI software account.  Then use the specific prompt we generated to build your content. Usually this involves: 

  • Copying it from this blog. 
  • Pasting it into the chat. 
  • Hitting enter.  

Many of these prompts will require you to update them with your church’s unique details prior to feeding them into the platform you’re using. Others are designed to prompt you for additional details within the chatbot you’re using. If you’re not sure which one you would like to use, we recommend using Poe. It lets you select from a variety of different LLMs in your chat. This way you can see what one provides the best results.

"Unlocking the Power of Forgiveness: Embrace Healing and Restoration"

YouTube Video Description:

Welcome to our latest sermon video, "Unlocking the Power of Forgiveness: Embrace Healing and Restoration." Today's message from our pastor dives deep into the essential and transformative power of forgiveness, a principle at the very heart of Christian teaching and our human experience.

In this sermon, we explore how forgiveness is not merely a recommendation, but a command from God, crucial for our spiritual growth and relational healing. Scriptural insights from Matthew 6:14-15, Ephesians 4:31-32, and Colossians 3:13 highlight the necessity and depth of forgiving others as we have been forgiven by God. The sermon is enriched with biblical stories and real-life examples that demonstrate the profound impact of forgiveness on both personal and communal levels.

Key Points Covered:

The spiritual and relational importance of forgiveness.

Scriptural commands and examples of forgiveness from the Bible.

Real-life outcomes of embracing or rejecting the path to forgiveness.

Practical advice on how to begin the journey of forgiveness and sustain it.

Forgiveness can be challenging, especially when the wounds are deep. Yet, this sermon will guide you through understanding how crucial forgiveness is for personal peace and spiritual freedom. We encourage you to reflect on your own life and consider areas where God is calling you to offer forgiveness and seek reconciliation.

Watch and be inspired to transform your relationships and heal your heart through the power of forgiveness.

Full Blog Creator

This prompt is meant to be used with Prompt 10, the Blog Outliner. You will need to generate a complete outline for it. The format the blog outliner creates works best with the following prompt to create a full blog. 

 

13. Full Blog Creator Prompt

There’s an issue with creating lengthier content within AI bots. They have a limit to the amount of content they’ll produce in one response. For creating something like a full blog from an outline, it can be tricky, but it is possible. The key is to get the bot to write it in chunks, while referencing the previous chats. This makes it so the end product functions as one cohesive unit.  

Because most LLMs, like Chat GPT, Claude or others struggle to remember previous references, you’ll want to use a GPT or bot to do this. Or create your own. We've created two that you can use. 

 

Outline to Blog Builder for Churches GPTAs with all GPTs, you need to have a premium account to use it.  

Outline to Blog Builder for Churches Poe - For those looking to use the bot entirely for free, you can do so with a free Poe account.  

 

These tools are meant to be used with Prompt 10, the Blog Outliner. You will need to generate a complete outline for it, specifically one that is in five parts: intro, main body point one, main body point two, main body point three and conclusion. The blog outliner from prompt 10 will create an outline in this format.  

 

If you would rather input the bot instructions directly in your AI of your choice, copy and paste the section below into your chat window.  

  • It will then prompt you to enter a topic or Bible verse to guide the blog outline. 
  • Once you enter your five-part outline, it will create your entire post in three sections. You’ll have to hit continue after each section to have it generate the next portion of the blog. 

Note: As we mentioned, this approach doesn’t always work, which is why a bot provides better results. The best model at doing it this way, from our tests, was Llama 3. You can access the Llama LLM within Poe.
