What this church needs is a slick ad campaign

May 28, 2008

I’ve always had an aversion to marketing. I feel dirty advertising the church. Perhaps that’s because much advertising is manipulative and dishonest. But some advertising is surely necessary. We’ve always had a yellow pages ad. We don’t want to misrepresent ourselves and tell people that if they come to our church they’ll get the full service experience that will satisfy their felt needs like they’ve never been satisfied before. But we do need to at least let people know we exist. And there surely are some people out there looking for a church like ours who haven’t found us yet. How can we get the word out to those people? Creative ideas, anyone? Help!

    Keep the Yellow Pages ad… that’s how I found the church!

    We should invite more people. That goes without saying.

    I wonder if we could also post fliers at the university?

    Whatever medium we use it needs to include: “Sure we meet in a gym. But it’s a really nifty gym, like with accordian bleachers and everything.”
