Welcoming is how we show kindness, acceptance, and hospitality to everyone – guests and members alike. People catch glimpses of Christ through their encounters with us. In a nation that’s becoming more unchurched all the time, we need to ensure that seekers encounter in us a Christ that they want to know better.
Stepping into your community can be as simple as a door hanger campaign, or a radio PSA. How about classified ads (yes, Igniting Ministry offers graphics for classified ads)? You can find “getting started” help in Stepping Into Igniting Ministry (PDF) . If you would like to (yourself, or in partnership with other local churches) have a television presence, our Matching Grant program might be able to help you double your budget! Below are more helpful resources and links.
