Igniting Ministry offers local churches new evangelism tools, highlighted by a series of powerful national cable network commercials designed to raise positive awareness about The United Methodist Church. The commercials meet people where they are and address those with hungry hearts with messages about God’s love … and building disciples of Jesus Christ is a lifetime ministry.
TIMELINE FOR COORDINATING WITH THE NATIONAL SCHEDULE
Commercials air during concentrated blocks of time (flights) on cable television at key times of year. These key times have been identified as periods when people are seeking to make life changes that might include finding a church home and are most receptive to Christian messages.
National Flight Times
- Lent-prior to Palm Sunday/Easter
- Back to school-the month of September
- Advent-during the weeks leading up to Christmas
