Church Growth – Trying Something New!

Pete Rose PostWe’re trying something a little different this year when it comes to our growth strategy.

Typically we’ll focus our energy on creating 3 or 4 “BIG Sundays” a year. By BIG Sundays, I mean more investment in production and a pretty major advertising campaign (direct mail, billboards, etc.).

This year the plan is to increase 3 or 4 to 12, or 1 per month.

Next month (March 30th) we have invited Pete Rose to be a part of a Sunday with a special theme: Everybody Deserves A Second Chance!

We’re hoping we can get a lot of new people to show up to see/meet Pete Rose and to hear how Jesus has given all of us, no matter who we are, a second chance.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Hi Owen!

    No. Easter and Christmas Eve are 2 of the 12. We are also planning something BIG for May (Mother’s Day) and June (Father’s Day). In the past these haven’t been BIG days.

    Make sense?

    Are those big days in addition to Easter and Christmas? Do you make a big deal out of other calendar days like Mothers Day and Fathers Day?

    Hi Jon!

    Should be fun!

    I’m really excited about this opportunity. As a baseball fan and Phillies fan, it was hard not to cheer for Pete Rose as a hard-nosed player. I’ll be interested to hear how he handles the questions about second chances. (I’m also wondering if he’ll be up for any autographs?)
