Great workshop on assimulating people to your church!

 

 

People Spots:      

 Completing Outreach through Incorporation

 

(Or: "How to reach people and help them "stick" to your church!")

 

            How can you reasonably expect that a visitor who attends this Sunday will be with you one year from now? How can you assist your congregation accept the changes necessary for growth? How important is the Sunday School in the total program? These and other questions will be addressed in this seminar.

           

            Many Christian leaders believer their churches fail to grow because they lack programs of outreach. The truth is: many congregations do effective outreach but fail to incorporate people brought by those efforts. Outreach is relatively easy. Incorporation is difficult.

 

            Most new classes or groups will not survive if the design is to recruit people from existing classes. They are being asked to abandon their current "people spot". Keep in mind, participation in a small group is the glue to hold members in the fellowship. New classes and groups ought to be designed for persons not attending.

 

            It is increasingly difficult for new people to fight their way into many existing churches. Members are surprised that a new person has to struggle to gain acceptance in their churches. The members say, "What's wrong with them? We are a friendly church." Incorporation is the completion of the evangelistic process. It means breaking down the walls we build between ourselves and others. If more than half of your people have been there for more than seven years, it is probably difficult for new people to gain entry to your fellowship. The theories in this seminar have been tempored by an average of 150 on-site visits to local churches a year over 30 years.  This is the 30th anniversary presentation  of People Spots. 

 

The Benefits:

  • A quality presentation of proven theories that have been tested in a variety of places.
  • An experienced seminar leader.
  • Time with other folks who have similar interests from a variety of traditions.
  • A light lunch on site to facilitate time.
