Church Marketing 101: Preparing Your Church for Greater Growth

Overview

Over 90 percent of all Christian churches in the United States have fewer than 200 members.

Overview

Over 90 percent of all Christian churches in the United States have fewer than 200 members. While they vary in shape, size, ethnicity, and denomination, they have one thing in common: the desire to grow. So why is it that some churches fail to grow for years, while other congregations in the same community increase exponentially?

The problem, says church marketing authority Richard Reising, is that most churches should not be doing promotion. Instead, they should focus on the preparation that will make members eager to invite others. In ChurchMarketing 101®, he demystifies basic marketing principles for the church, evaluates them against biblical principles, and illustrates how simple changes can remove roadblocks that hinder members from reaching out. Reising's simple yet insightful approach will be invaluable to pastors and ministry leaders from churches of all denominations and styles.

    A New Perspective!

    This book gives a new perspective on what "marketing" in the church really means! It isn't about sending out mailers or putting up billboards to advertise your church. The concept of marketing goes much deeper than that - it's about how to communicate to the community in even the simple things - and this book explains it well. I highly recommend this book to anyone, whether you are a new Christian or a long-time Pastor!

    GREAT book. I've been in church my whole life. Went to Bible college. Served in ministry for the past 11 years. Nowhere did they teach me the things I learned in Church Marketing 101. It's insightful, it's practical, and I guarantee it'll flip the light switch on for things you didn't even know you were in the dark on. For the love of God and His Church, please read this book.

    Pure Greatness!

    Having worked at a Church as a designer, this book articulated my frustrations and rejuvenated my heart for what the Body of Christ can become if it can communicate the Word effectively to an ever-changing culture. I literally read this book in two days because it was so inspiring and fired me up. Great read!
