25 creative ways the church can invite new people

Updated on February 5, 2013

how to reach people

 The following is an excert from my blog www.neppl.wordpress.com about how churches can reach people. The truth is these ideas can and will work for most types of businesses looking to drum up leads.

These are just some ways to meet new people and invite them to church. Our church has tried alot of them, but not all of them. If they are expensive ways I have marked them with $, $$, $$$ accordingly. There is no silver bullet. All of these ideas take time to catch on. However, if you and your church people consistently try to reach people and invite them to church, you will see results.

1. send out postcard invitations to every home within 5 miles of your church $$$

2. host a community cookout at your church on a Saturday

3. sponsor a little league baseball/basketball/football team

4. organize and advertise a city wide scavenger hunt and partner people in your church with new people

5. rent a booth at local festivals and sponsor a give away while passing out your church information

6. get a group to do city clean up projects while wearing your church t shirts

7. host an outdoor movie nite in the summer using projectors and a huge outdoor screen

8. pass out free water bottles and church info at the local little league games on a hot summer day

9. advertise on the radio $$

10. advertise on tv $$$

11. advertise in your local paper $

12. challenge your people to invite friends to church

13. have your staff coach a city little league team

14. advertise on billboards $$$$

15. start a tv ministry $$$$$$$$$$$$$

16. make brochures available to your people to invite others

17. send out an email invitation to your church and ask your people to forward it to their friends

18. host national night out events at your church

19. hang door hangers on every door in your city inviting people to your church

20. invite local firemen and police offcers to a special service honoring our community heros, invite the mayor, chief, or city council member to speak

21. take a random office free lunch or breakfast along with your church brochures and business cards

22. pay for the meal of people behind you in the drive thru and leave them an invitation to church

23. sign up for a service that sends new families just moving into your city invitations to your church

24. take cupcakes to the fire/police station and thank them for their hard work

25. have a free car wash on Saturday and give every one invitations to your church on Sunday
