We know that about 90% of people come to church because they were personally invited. Recently, we learned that about 85% of congregation members have no intention of inviting anyone to church but they would like to.
All our church environments communicate something. From the parking lot to the stage – everything matters if we want to be great. Culture has the unique ability to trump the message before it’s even preached so we pay careful attention to the pre-service sermon that is coming across to our guests and first time visitors.
