Communication Card Download

You asked for it…here’s the latest version of the Communication Card we use at The Journey. We call it a Connection Card (I stole that term from my good friend Jimmy Britt a few years ago) because it seems a little softer.

Two versions for you to download (just right click and choose Save As – includes both front and back of the card):

Communication Card as PDF

Communication Card as Mircosoft Publisher File

Here’s some key thoughts for your connection card:

- Are you asking for information you are not using? If so, cut the info from your card.

- Can you fill out the card in your lap?

- Is the most important info at the top of the card?

- Is there enough space for a long email address?

- Are you placing the card in the bulletin (no more tear-offs or back-of-pew cards)?

If you are just starting out, you don’t need to customize the card for the series or even do it in color (I’ve found no increase in the return rate for either).

Hope this helps!  I want this blog to be a useful tool for you.  If you have feedback, you can use the Ask Nelson button on the right.

Great question Adam - this is something you want to keep track of and continue to improve. Here are a couple of posts that I've been told are helpful in getting more connection cards: http://www.churchleaderinsights.com/blog/2010/10/19/the-power-of-because-in-leading-change-at-your-church/ http://www.churchleaderinsights.com/blog/2011/01/26/how-to-get-information-from-your-first-time-guests-assimilation/ Hope that helps!
