The 5 Best Ways For Your Church To Connect With First-Time Guests

 

A few years ago, along with my wife and a few friends, I decided to visit a large church we had heard about. I was excited. The preacher was well-known as one of the best in the country. We arrived early and sat on the left side of the sanctuary about two-thirds back from the stage. The service started, and the music was amazing. Then the announcements came.

10 Questions to Ask Before You Change the Name of Your Church

 

Years ago when I was a Lead Pastor, we changed the name of our church. We had been North Baptist Church and we changed the name to Northridge Church. Going through that process was not easy in a 125-year-old church. But I was convinced that our name was serving more as a wall than a bridge. So, striving to do everything we could to win as many for Christ as possible, we went through the difficult, time-consuming, and expensive process of changing the name of our church.

Your responsibilities may be greater, and you’re stretched even thinner - possibly even having to drive between campuses. Yet, even though it may be more difficult, it remains just as important to get to know the people serving in your ministry.

How to Value The Singles In Your Church & Get Them Plugged In

As humans, we like to categorize things. And not just things; we like to categorize people, too. Church ministries tend to be dictated by the categories that we come up with, and most of the time, it makes perfect sense: Children’s Ministry, Student Ministry, and Men’s / Women’s Ministries exist because each of these groups has some needs specific to its own members.
