Hope Jernagan

episcopal priest, creative consultant

I have over 10 years of experience working with churches and nonprofits. 

Powerful story-telling is the primary tool for engaging members, donors, newcomers, and volunteers. My passion for communication and design grew out of my love for telling these important stories. 

For many churches and nonprofits, a creative team is cost-prohibitive. I offer communications solutions and design services at an affordable rate.


Having been a leader within churches and secular nonprofits, I already speak the language of the field, so we can get right to work creating together.

Friends ask me why I chose the name Upside Workshop. I tell them that I work exclusively with nonprofits and congregations. I am always so inspired by the organizations I partner with, and wanted my business name to reflect the positive work they are doing. In short, I work with people who add more upsides to the world. 

It's a workshop because we work together to create what's right for you. It's a partnership rather than simply contracted work. I will always leave you with tools and knowledge so that you can continue doing your work without having to always rely on outside help. But I'm always here if you need me.

what's the upside?




Is your audience engaged and informed? How will you know? I will help you assess your current communications, develop goals, and identify audiences. Together we will create a strategy which will move your audiences toward more engagement with your organization. 


I create designs that help make your communications clean, consistent, and compelling. Whether it's a logo, website, brochure, or social media campaign, your organization will benefit from a look that's as powerful as the story you're telling.
