It seems in our post-Christian culture that the courage (or perhaps even willingness) to share our faith is becoming rare. Why is that? Why is sharing our faith so challenging for most people? I suspect the answer is “sharing your faith”or “evangelizing people” are such a nebulous phrases. What does it mean? When do you do it? What do you say? How do we teach people how to do it? How do we normalize it?

Most Churches tend to see growth and attendance stall in the summer months. Does it have to be that way? A full 60% or more of people in our communities don't attend church at all, so there's no shortage of people to invite. How can we engage these people and invite them to our church this summer?
While many people will be taking vacation this summer there is still ample opportunity to invite people when they are at home. Not all of America will be on vacation at the same time so let’s open our church doors to those people that are still in the neighborhood each weekend. An Acts of Kindness Campaign engages our communities and raises awareness about your church.
Once you have guests visiting your church the goal is to get them to stick around.
Numerical growth is often on the mind of pastors and church leadership.
Living in the Post-Modern era offers a lot of temptation specifically as it relates to the advancement of technology. It seems right out of the birth canal kids are handed a smartphone or tablet and they begin interacting in the digital world.
Our culture continues to change at a rapid rate. The minute we think we have understood a cultural shift and adjusted our approach we recognize it has changed yet again. The effectiveness of your church is influenced greatly by your understanding of the culture which God has placed your church in.
Many pastors are bi-vocational – meaning their job at the church isn’t their first or only job.
In fact many in our day are choosing to be bi-vocational to force a connection with non-believers and stay relevant.
Christmas is such an important time of year for your church. Think of the amount of people who check out church this time of year who normally wouldn’t otherwise darken the door of one. It’s a huge opportunity to connect with new people.
If you want to grow your church, then you have to face the reality that growth in attendance means that more people actually need to attend your church. Brilliant right? So now the real question: How? How do you get more people to attend?
