Do you ever feel like you’re doing everything right on Sunday mornings - offering powerful music, a relevant and engaging sermon, along with welcoming a community, but you still can't seem to increase your worship attendance on a weekly basis?
Church communication can feel daunting at times even for the most experienced church communicators and pastors. Thriving churches communicate in ways that simplify this process and focus on getting the message to their audience with ease.
Creating an inviting and warm experience for first-time guests before, during, and after worship services and events is important. A primary goal for church staff and volunteers should be to help guests feel loved and welcomed throughout the week as well. So how does your church make certain that guests stay connected after their visit?
In today’s world we are inundated by sales pitches that over promise and over simplify.
In response to this, we as ministry leaders, become skeptical of anything that even remotely smells of a sales pitch. Because of our skepticism, we have fallen into the temptation of making things harder than they need to be.
Guest follow-up has been a casualty of this battle for far too long in churches and ministries across the country.
The fact is, Christians spend hundreds of hours each year staring at this tiny screen. We use phones to connect and build relationships in ways that were not imaginable 20 years ago. So, shouldn’t the Church jump onboard?
When done right… effective guest follow up can be completed in less than 45 seconds per guest. It sounds crazy, but it’s not. Churches all across the county are leveraging technology to do it every week.
