Monday is for Follow-up: Connection Card Tips

“The Communication Card or Connection Card is just that – a card that enables you to have a dialogue of sorts with everyone who attends your church on a given Sunday. Measuring about a third of a page, the Communication Card is printed on heavy paper stock and inserted into the program. Don’t stick it in the back of the chairs or pews. Put it in the program, and put the program in the hand of each guest who comes through the door. This is the best way to ensure that no one is overlooked. Here’s a tip: Also pass out pens with your programs. Remove all stumbling blocks. Once everyone who has entered your church has a Communication Card-bearing program in his or her hand, the process of information gathering can begin.Nelson Searcy

(the above quote is from p. 69 of Fusion by Nelson Searcy)

Lessons from The Difference Maker – Your Story Can Change the World

 The Difference Maker book icon

“God has given you a story that can change the world. The catch is, you have to be ready and willing to tell it. Telling your story is an ordinary action that can have an eternal impact on the people around you. But like a gift that never gets opened, a story that never gets told can’t serve the purpose it was meant for. If you don’t tell others what God has done in your life, he can’t use it to impact the world.”  Nelson Searcy

The above quote is from p. 47 of The Difference Maker: Using Your Everyday Life for Eternal Impact.

This new book is designed to help your people share faith with others. The Difference Maker: Using Your Everyday Life for Eternal Impact can be a powerful evangelism tool – especially when used as part of an effective Evangelism system and “Big Day” process.

What other pastors are saying about Systems Bootcamp (are YOU registered?)

We’re now just a month away from Church Systems Check-up and Bootcamp on Wednesday, July 20 – Friday, July 22 —and filling up fast! This event has become THE most practical, proven, real world nuts-and-bolts training you can attend to help you grow your church.2016-Bootcamp-web-icon

But don’t just take my word for it . . .

Here’s what other pastors are saying who attended last year and BTW every single one them is coming back this year, many of them bringing their teams:

Thank you for the learnings we experienced at Boot Camp. I’d taken time off from my ministry to retool and refresh, and I decided to take in the Boot Camp to be filled with what God wanted me to hear. I’ll go back to the office armed with information and systems, to put more into practice than I have in the past.”
Dan Zemlicka, Clovis First Assembly of God, Clovis, CA
Also a member of Senior Pastor Coaching

I was challenged to re-up on a number of things from the systems. I could not take my staff members to any other event that they would get more applicable information from. Very good. We filled our flights home to Wisconsin with great conversation and long ‘To-Do’ lists.”
Stan Pegram, BMZ Regional Church, Boscobel, WI
Also a member of Advanced Coaching

The networking was outstanding. My key takeaways — the coverage of the 8 Systems from a Stewardship perspective, Nelson sharing successes and failures of The Journey Church, encouragement and empowerment as a new pastor, the valuable information in the workbook and handouts . . . and hope!”
Dennis McCain, New Jerusalem C.O.G.I.C., Tacoma, WA
Also a member of Senior Pastor Coaching

“Each time you go through Boot Camp, you will still learn something new.”
Lon Dean, House of Praise, Casleton-on-Hudson, NY

Financial Challenges of the Small Church Pastor

Today’s guest post comes to us from Shelia Poole for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

66816

Despite all the talk about megachurches and their wealth, new research suggests that most evangelical pastors serve in small churches and often experience significant personal financial challenges.

“The vast majority of pastors do not have their own radio or TV show, robust church staff, or megachurch attendance,” Leith Anderson, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, said in a statement. “Rather they faithfully serve in small churches and face financial challenges stemming from student debt, low salaries and medical expenses.”

Most pastors serve in churches with less than 200 people in the congregation. The poll, conducted by Grey Matter Research, found that of the 4,249 pastors surveyed, including several in Georgia, 80 percent serve in churches with annual budgets under $125,000 that usually covers maintenance, programs and pastor/staff payroll. Fifty percent of pastors receive less than $50,000 per year in salary.

Other findings:
Eighty-five percent of pastors said they did not receive financial training while in seminary.
Thirty-three percent have under $10,000 in retirement funds.
Seventy-six percent of pastors know other pastors who left the ministry due to financial pressures.

Your partner in ministry,

Nelson

P.S. – If you are in debt, I hope you’ll make the bold decision to become debt free. If you are debt free, I hope you’ll determine today to remain debt free. The future stewardship vitality of your church just might depend on the financial decisions you make.

I want to help you to learn how to eliminate debt and prioritize your personal finances, so I’d like to give you a copy of my resource Debt-Free Pastor.

Just send an email to nelson@churchleaderinsights.com with the subject line “Debt Free Pastor” and I’ll get you a free copy.

Monday is for Follow-up: The Connection Card Impact

“Knowing how to structure the use of the Communcation Card for maximum impact is critical to your guests’ future. It is far more critical to their future than to yours. This process is not about you. It’s about giving your guests the best possible opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and turn over closely held information. Why? Not so that you can add to the numbers, but so that you can follow up with them in a way that will make them want to keep connecting with the church, for their own spiritual development. This is about them and how you can help them move from unchurched visitors to fully developing followers of Jesus Christ.Nelson Searcy

“No matter what has or hasn’t happened to you, where you come from or what your life looked like before Jesus intersected it, God wants to use every detail of your story for his glory.

There’s no better way to connect with people and to make a difference in their lives than to share heartfelt truths about your own journey.” Nelson Searcy
