Tips on Getting New Church Members to Come to Your Church.
Any church setting may experience a boom and bust in the number of congregants coming in for worship sessions. Booms may be experienced during special occasions while busts may occur during set service days. Here are some tips you can take up and increase the number of congregants attending service at your church.
Creating a congregation which is affirming and in a friendly way can increase the number of congregants in your church. Your church can achieve this by accepting worshipers without taking any regard to their gender identity or sexuality. Once accepted into a friendly and affirming congregation, the new members can consistently attend services growing your congregation. By taking this step you can take a step towards bringing individuals who are astray back to the path of salvation.
It is possible to increase the number of congregants attending your service at your church by mainstreaming friends and family events in your church programs. To increase the number of congregants, you can encourage your congregation to invite their fellow family members and friends. Such an event can have a large number of congregants and it is advisable to prepare appropriately to accommodate them. The programs under the event should be appropriate for different age groups and a final program which is aimed at encouraging the attendants to attend service at the church.
Streaming your services online and creating a following on social media can come in handy in increasing your congregation. Live streams of the service can aid congregants who are not able to attend the service or who are not familiar to the church destination to attend the service offsite. Live streams beat the geographic limitation of the church as individuals can watch the service anywhere as long as they are connected to the internet. Social media platforms are popular with everyone and they are an important tool as they can be used to popularize and share information on your church. They are efficient as a single post can reach a wide base of users. Established members can facilitate the popularization of your church by sharing content and publicizing the church’s social media accounts.
One on one chats with new members can prove a handy tool in encouraging them to attend service at the church. To establish new members into the congregation the established members can be assigned to them and maintain contact with them until they become established. Through online Facebook or WhatsApp groups members can maintain chats and keep contact. Lastly, the church should focus on spiritual matters. This can be done by making prayer personal and ensuring that the preachers are available for consultation to all members. To create a vibrant congregation, build active members from the available youth and children.
