  • Summary:

    Like you, church consultant Andrew Weeks knows there is never enough time to get everything done, especially in smaller churches. So, he created this action-oriented “how-to” manual whose encouraging and incremental approach will help even small groups get started quickly. As you begin to implement his recommendations for reviewing existing programs and developing new initiatives you will find yourself saying: “Why didn’t we think of that?”

    Weeks has consolidated his widely varied workshop experiences into this toolkit of intentional and compassionate strategies. Study the separate chapters on: imaginative marketing, the ministry of greeting, crafting welcoming materials, tracking and involving newcomers, and structuring groups for growth. Then adapt thirty-four additional pages of template forms, brochures and procedures to your needs while employing his point-by-point recommendations to: Make sure your signs and property invite, not confuse, Create powerful, welcoming ads and print communication, Train and prepare greeters, and Develop programs to incorporate and track newcomers during their critical first months.
