In almost every survey, new people at church come because they were invited by a friend — to the tune of about 80%! So how do we get our people to invite friends?
Some of them do not even have any friends who are unchurched!
But a short relaxed video might help. A number of churches are doing it. The one I am enclosing is too long, because I think they could be 20 to 25 seconds easily. Relaxed. Fun. Not preachy. But announcing the subject for Sunday and why it is important.
These are best done at various sites — by a stream, on a baseball field, not at the pulpit with a blue suit on!
Then you encourage your own people to forward it to friends as they invite them. A few will!
It is a video age!
