How to Use Church Connection Cards: A Super Simple 4-Step Plan for Following Up on First-Time Guests
How do we get first-time guests to come back again? There are a lot of creative solutions to this problem (some of which we’ll mention in this post). But they all boil down to one big answer: you need to make a connection with that first-time guest. Sometimes, this connection happens before the service with your welcome team or members of your church family. Sometimes, this connection happens during the service through the worship or preaching. But most often, this happens through intentional and personal follow-up after the service is over.
This week, we have a great interview with Pastor Micaiah Irmler, the lead pastor at Southridge Church in San Jose. He’s going to tell us about an event that they put on each year in their community: Food Truck Sunday. It’s an idea that you may want to use at your own church. But even if you don’t, there’s a lot to learn from this conversation. Because Pastor Micaiah is also going to tell us how they engage visitors at these events and follow-up with them when its over. These are things that you can apply to any event at your church.
