The #1 Problem Facing Most Churches …is the EASIEST to Fix.

Are you constantly struggling to grow your church, increase awareness, and gain support for your causes? Don’t worry, you are not alone in this struggle.

In fact, most churches list outreach and growth as the most difficult challenge.

The number one reason people do not attend church, is so mind-mindbogglingly simple, that most churches don’t even realize it.

So what is the reason? You have not invited them.

If you want to grow, you must make local residents and prospective members feel welcomed and “at home” with your church. As with any other decision, people factor in the benefits  and risks (ie: not feeling accepted, being the “new” person, etc) when deciding where to attend church. And usually, it is the church that best aligns with their beliefs AND invites them — that earns their support and trust.

So what can you do to increase awareness, grow your church, and run a successful outreach program?

Mail each and every local household a friendly invitation to visit your church using Every Door Direct Mail®.
