How is this Outreach Approach Different?
Most church outreach programs ask outsiders to come to the church, something most are not comfortable in doing. This approach is your church going out to others. It is not church-focused but focused on others.
Top researchers of American Christianity warn us that churches are shrinking in size, budgets are stretched with less giving, and the outside culture is becoming more unfriendly to our faith. The Family & Couple Outreach Ministry is a part of a solution to combat these very serious problems. We must act now! We must build bridges to the unchurched before it is too late.
This outreach strategy is different, very easy and non-threatening for everybody to do, as well as very inexpensive. Outsiders will welcome these non-religious, relationship-building fun games that are printed on a single sheet of cover stock paper and handed out free.
Since parents are most concerned about their children, these family conversation games will be enthusiastically accepted. Since couples are concerned about their relationships, the couple conversation grids will also be welcome. These resources can be used to attract people to your church because your information appears on the front and back of the games/grids you print.
Most of your members and attendees will be delighted to participate in this ministry. It is an important and friendly gesture to their friends, relatives, neighbors and people they work with.
This is an excellent way to:
reach those who are not interested in faith or church;
prevent some of the tragedies in your community involving children (your church can help prevent teens drinking and dying in a car crash, kids being abused, and families falling apart);
increase the size of your church - but not by taking Christians from other churches?
There are critical benefits.
church growth, both people and revenue
new people coming to Jesus Christ
families being strengthened against many harmful things
couples strengthening their relationship and facing life’s storms better
kids gaining valuable skills for lifetime success
These are all possible by letting your members simply hand out very helpful family and couple communication games to those with whom they come in natural contact.
this is simple and takes almost no volunteer or staff time
this is absolutely not at all scary for your people to do
this helps the friends, relatives, neighbors, and workmates of your members
this is very inexpensive
