4 Things I Learned Doing a City Wide Outreach

Church Growth

Rather than inviting people to come “in” to our services and programs, what if we took the message “out” to every home?

I had always preached about “reaching our community” and everyone would nod in grand approval.  But what were we really doing to accomplish that vision?

There came a day when I decided to take concerted action on this point, and to start floating to my leadership team the idea that we should develop a coordinated strategy to reach the city we were in – the entire city – as in every home!  I had heard of other churches approaching things this way, and the more I thought about it, the more it seemed right for us.  Rather than inviting people to come “in” to our services and programs, what if we took the message “out” to every home?

After a few meetings to discern what our community needed, and what skill sets we had, our church landed on developing a magazine-style print campaign that would land in more than 28,000 mailboxes – six times in a row!  For us, it felt like a dramatic undertaking, but we knew that the topics our magazines would address (finances, marriage, purpose, forgiveness, addictions, and stress) were exactly what our community needed to discuss, particularly the Bible’s wisdom in those areas.

We formed teams to study each topic and also to prepare for any response that might come in from the mailings, and these teams took on the identity of “their issue” of the magazine. (Being a member of the “love” team was much more attractive than being on the “addictions” team to be sure!)

The whole process was good for our church.  Not only did we involve most of our adult congregation in a direct community outreach, but we did actually reach our whole city with the gospel. In six separate magazines over a little more than a year-long period, we offered the truth right in mailboxes – not just promotions to “come and hear” the answer, but – here, in friendly four-color – is the answer!

Church Growth – Our Experience:

The success is difficult to measure, but here’s what happened to us:

  • In the year of the mailings and then the following few months, I believe nearly 1,000 people visited our church for the first time.
  • The conversation of our town was remarkably shaped by this. Our members reported countless conversations that started with, “Wait, are you from the church that sent me the…”
  • A large number of adult attenders of our fellowship got involved in small groups (teams) and evangelistic conversation – many of whom had never done so before.

Here are four things I learned from our city-wide outreach:

1. People want to share the gospel, but they need a practical pathway. We had no problem finding volunteers and donors to make the whole program happen – but they wouldn’t have gotten involved without a specific pathway to do so.  The plan itself is all they were waiting for!  I didn’t need to preach more about outreaching, I needed to lead the way.

2. A strategic plan was necessary from the outset. Those who made the project possible (our church family) needed to see that initial PowerPoint presentation where I showed charts of the number of households in our church area, the religious affiliations of those households, cost projections for reaching out, and more.  They needed to see the plan before they could work the plan!  And that process required prayer, creativity, lots of meetings and plenty of offline conversations.  It was well worth it in the end!

3. City-reaching is a wide-open market. Most churches build their organizational structures and keep things afloat for the general benefit of their members.  There’s nothing wrong with that per se, except that Jesus didn’t found the church to be an end in itself!  Elevating outreach to the top of the priority list at our church changed the temperature of the people.  It also gave our internal ministries renewed purpose and vision.  When I say city-reaching is an “open market” I mean that very few churches are really doing it.  Many talk, but few get strategic and practical with that talk.

4. Bolder is better, as long as its realistic. I don’t suspect the momentum or change in our church (or the actual effect of the effort) would have been the same if we had taken action on a smaller scale.  We did have voices in our church arguing for smaller or more conservative plans.  “Isn’t this too expensive?  Shouldn’t we do _______ first?”  My favorite piece of feedback came from a non-Christian after the mailing of our first issue.  He wrote, “This is awfully aggressive for a church. Please remove me from your list.”  Amen!  Imagine, people who believe the gospel is the only way to heaven – being aggressive!

As you contemplate strategic planning and leadership coaching in your congregation, my encouragement is to think out of the box. Gather a leadership and creative team together and begin with the question: “How can we complete the Great Commission in our community?”

Look no further! Leadership Outreach has a team of experts that will help you with the following services:

Vision Development

Visioneering – Clarifying Your Ministry’s Next Steps

church growthA clearly defined vision acts as an organization’s True North by clarifying priorities and focusing the ministries resources on God’s unique purpose for that nonprofit organization. Through our facilitated meetings, Leadership Outreach coaches work with your leadership team to discover and clarify your ministry vision.

Pastors and not-for-profit leaders must cast a compelling vision for the future of their ministry in order to rally the support of their followers, team, and stakeholders. How do you distinguish between a good idea and a God idea? Discovering God’s clear direction for your ministry is vital to the health and growth of your ministry/church. Let the staff and seasoned leadership veterans at Leadership Outreach help you prayerfully discover and uncover God’s dream for the future of your ministry through our nonprofit / church consulting services in Austin and nationwide.

Strategy Planning and Development

Church Growth and Nonprofit Strategic Planning

church consultingOnce an organization has clearly defined their long-range vision, the next step is to create the step-by-step plans to achieve that vision. Leadership Outreach strategists work with your team to set long-term ministry goals, quantifiable yearly objectives, supporting strategies, and detailed action plans. Together we will determine the factors that are critical to your ministry’s success and work to identify and overcome the barriers towards church growth in Austin and nationwide.

Strategic Planning is simply a process of making decisions. It is an ongoing leadership tool whereby an organization envisions its future and develops goals, objectives, strategies, and action plans to achieve that future. A compelling vision without a well-developed strategic plan may produce some good results but not the explosive church growth that could occur if both vision and strategy were clearly aligned.

Typically this plan is created in two, three-day sessions whereby we come alongside the organization and direct them through the process. The strategic planning becomes a new way of life for the organization, not simply a check off list. Our unique facilitation exercises make strategy development easy.

Church growth is every pastor’s dream. Usually, the concept of church growth is limited to refer only to an increase in church attendance without considering the quality of its members. When quality is set aside, the church may grow in number but may not remain stable and end up splitting into several groups.

Many new found churches aspire to know the secrets of church growth. Studies, conferences and books are full with advice on effective church growth strategies that Christian leaders should consider to become mega churches. These recommendations usually come from churches that experienced significant growth and success stories.

In trying to grow a church, it is always a good idea to seek help from other sources. As your church is still in its nascent stage, it needs to develop itself both organizationally and spiritually. You as a church leader need to develop to your own set of capabilities especially your leadership skills to effectively shepherd your flock.

With the rise of technology and materialism come a number of misconceptions about church and church related issues. One of these misconceptions concerns church growth. Church growth seminars are published in many websites and mass media. It appears that the trend is for churches to grow in number or else something is wrong with that church.

Natural church growth is defined as the continuous arrival of new members in which they are neither forced nor persuaded to become part of it. Willingness is a key term in this phenomenon since natural church growth happens when people see that they will benefit from the church membership.

Church growth is vital in every church ministry. There are several resources offered online and books that are available about church growth ministries. Before you choose resources and run through it you must first consider its reliability.

The concept of church growth had already existed right from the moment churches are established. In fact, there are cases when church leaders are throwing negative things about the other ministry. This should not be tolerated. All ministries have the right to grow and preach the word of God.
