How Do New Adults Join Churches?

How do new adult church members come to join a community of faith?

Quite simply, by invitation.

While the majority of existing members are in their present congregations because it is nearby or they grew up in it, most newcomers without a church background joined as a result of

a personal invitation from a friend, relative or church member.

Mission strategies which rely on impersonal approaches are far less successful: the majority of newcomers DO NOT join congregations because of advertising, publicity or high visibility.

…of growing your church is to

focus on creating an Attitude of Gratitude and

giving your members a simple system

to help them show gratitude for their family, friends and congregation

slide5

Benefits of Fundraising with an Attitude of Gratitude

  • Ability to reach out to local residents by leveraging the relationships of existing members rather than cold marketing.
  • Gives members opportunities to be involved and excited about witnessing and missionary work.
  • Motivates people to come back to church after their first visit that results in a lifetime member.
  • Helps members to feel as though they are needed and special and part of a larger family church unit, which keeps them coming back week after week.
  • Decreases cost and labor burden to church.
  • Acts as a source of “member involved” fundraising.

What is Church Fundraising with an Attitude of Gratitude?

The Church Fundraising with an Attitude of Gratitude is a program in which members send greeting cards to invite their friends to church services, meetings and special events. And the congregation can send cards and gifts to members who join the church or to members that have a special event in their daily lives; a wedding, a new baby, a birthday, an anniversary, the possibilities are unlimited.

Friends

How does the Church keep membership?
  • By showing an Attitude of Gratitude each and every day, week, month and year.
  • This can be done quickly and by the entire congregation.
  • Imagine the possibilities when everyone is talking about the Church that expresses Gratitude for its members on a routine basis.
  • This is what God tells us to do, Love Thy Neighbor as Thyself. And by showing Gratitude for others, we are fulfilling our commitment to God’s Law.
