They rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest isaiah 9 3

“The task of the church is not to develop its own programs but to respond to the mission of God, participating in that mission. We can recover the essence of the mission of the church as understood within the concept ofMissio Dei, an expression that says mission derives from the very nature of God, and the missionary initiative comes from God alone. God invites persons and churches to participate in God's initiative. This response is expressed through commitment and seeking God's guidance in the fulfillment of that mission.” (Baptist World Alliance, July 2012)

Principle of Concentration of Force

“To achieve success… it is essential to concentrate superior force, moral or material, …at the decisive time and place. Concentration does not necessarily imply a massing of forces, but rather having them so disposed as to be able to unite to deliver the decisive blow when and where required...”

A four week attendance campaign (with four preparation weeks) with an evangelistic thrust. The basic techniques that make Friend Day successful:

Each member brings one friend...no need to confront strangers.

Organized, easy-to-do follow up provides a personal touch that will bring back visitors...again and again.

Proven to double attendance on Friend Day in most churches, more than double in some.
