Church Leader’s Toolkit
We all know how difficult it can be to maintain the growth and momentum of your church.
While every growing church faces obstacles, those that thrive over the long term structure key people and initiatives in ways that are lasting, effective, and impactful.
To help you, I have developed a free toolkit for church leaders—it’s a set of free videos and how-to guides that will help you:
- Overcoming the Number 1 Obstacle to Church Growth
- Find and keep good leaders, even if you think you have none; And
- Evaluate your outreach efforts
Drawing on years of experience in church growth, I have distilled my insights into a series of practical steps and reminders that will help you make sure your church is vibrant, growing and impactful.
You can access the Church Leader’s Toolkit for free at churchleadertoolkit.com.
I’ll send you a copy right away.
If you’re like most pastors, your outreach strategy is nothing like it was a year ago, let alone 10 or 20 years ago. Things change at the speed of light.
And since they didn’t teach marketing in the seminar, you’re going to have to be careful of that. Gloo’s revolutionary program called REACH.
Over the past year, REACH has connected more than 127,000 people to churches across the country. It is an average of 12 new contacts every month for churches that sign up.
Here’s how it works.
- Gloo partners with recognizable national campaigns for Jesus. You’ve probably seen it before:
- He gets us
- Church care
- And many more
- When people respond to these campaigns and ask to connect with a church, Gloo connects them to a church in their city.
- Then your church receives connections in a dedicated inbox using Gloo’s suite of FREE SMS tools to communicate and build relationships.
It’s easy to use, doesn’t require additional staff, and the costs are covered by Kingdom-Minded backers who want you to have access to this one-of-a-kind solution.
The best part?
- While others focus on running expensive and complex campaigns,
- You are free to focus on what you do best: building life-changing relationships.
So what are you waiting for? Go to get.gloo.us/reach to sign up and connect with more people in your community who need you.
