God has uniquely positioned your Church in the context of culture. But how will you cut through the noise and effectively reach your community? It’s not about a nifty logo. Not about a cool website. It’s not simply about using “compelling” language. And no, not even about an awesome worship space. It’s about knowing your story: who you are, what you’re saying, how you’re saying it, how you behave and engineering staff and volunteer alignment. What can your church promise day-in and day-out that 10,000 other churches cannot? Why does your congregation drive past dozens of other churches to attend your church? During this interactive session we’ll discuss what it means to discover, express and live your church’s one-of-a-kind story. You’ll learn the principles of aligning your staff with your unique story, how to mobilize attendees, and attract visitors.
