How Rethinking Easter Will Grow Your Church
[NOTE: This blog is focused on a major event on the church calendar – Easter. The principles articulated herein are applicable across the spectrum of church events and seasons.]
Here’s a question for you: What is going to make this Easter different from last Easter?
By that I mean … what is going to cause more people to come back to your church the week after Easter this year over last?
Fact: The greatest day in the year to talk to pastors is the Monday after Easter. It’s a great day, isn’t it?
Fact: The worst day in the year to talk to pastors is the Monday after the Sunday after Easter (i.e. 8 days after Easter).
I remember talking a pastor-friend of mine out of becoming a truck driver on a day like that.
He literally was deciding which company to go with, either Peterbilt or Kenworth. I seriously had to talk him off the ledge!
This is the reality for many pastors. Maybe not to the point where they’ll quit ministry entirely (although for some it is), but it can be very hard to see no tangible change in your ministry following a big event like Easter…
… BUT it shouldn’t be that way, so we created two high-value PDFs to help pastors connect people to the church. And these two free resources are particularly germane to the church connecting people in and around Easter.
Ever wonder what to say when you contact guests after they’ve visited the church? Download the free “Done-For-You Follow-Up Scripts” PDF and you’ll have plug ‘n play messages to communicate through text, email, and phone.
What would it be like for you to experience near and long-term growth as a result of the Easter experience guests have at your church?
By utilizing the Done-For-You Scripts and the How to Keep Guests Coming Back to Your Church Every Week you will see better than ever connections happening with the members, friends, and guests of the great church you serve. Trust me!
This Easter has huge potential to grow your church. In following the steps outlined in each of these PDFs, you’ll discover the crucial steps to adding new people to the church.
Along with this, you should check out our 8 Steps to Prepare Your Church for Easter blog that will help you reach this potential.
The fact is, most churches struggle with getting visitors to return after a big event (84.5% of more than 2,000 churches we assessed to be exact).
Connecting guests will teach you how to solve this problem and grow your church. Tapping into Scripts and How to Keep Guests will actually help you with all of your church’s events year-round.
As you prepare for Easter this year, dig deep and do the right things that will produce big impact for the Kingdom. Rethinking Easter will do just that!
