Where can pastors start?
Every day I am asked by pastors all around the world if I have any suggestions about increasing the size of their congregation. Well let me tell you its a pretty daunting task. But there are some very simple things you can do to accomplish this.
One of the most obvious at this day and age is to record everything and put it on the internet. In some cases you can even broadcast it live as it happens. There are many companies out there that provide discounted streaming faith services to churches. This gives them the ability to provide a great quality stream without any ads of branding. Those companies also offer tons of other services that might for church groups.
Good old fashion door to door flyers also can do the trick. You can gather up a group of volunteers to hand these out. In order to attract more people you will need to organize and even such as a dinner or carnival. Not only are you doing something nice for the community but you are also attracting all kinds of people to your church. You might even get extended family members to join.
Make sure to have your announcements person every Sunday to mention to the congregation to bring their loved ones every Sunday and spread the word of our great lord.
