In our post-Christian world, an invitation to "come to church" isn't appealing to many people. They don't see a need for church, or anything positive about it.

What can we do to get people to at least visit?

One answer is in Seasonal Celebrations! Everybody wants to celebrate the holidays: Christmas caroling, fall festivals for kids, Easter-egg hunts, Summer movies in the Park. If your church sponsors them, people will come.

Many churches have realized this and spend lots of time and effort to get people to the events, but then the challenge becomes, how to you get people to come back to church after the free movie and candy? That is what this course will show it.

It isn't a quick and easy, "Do these 3 things and the latest social media and OVERWHELMING SUCCESS will be Yours!" course.

Based on years of working with churches on seasonal celebrations, in about an hour and a half of training, this course will teach you:

A Comprehensive PROCESS that shows what your church needs to do Before, During, and After your event to not only grow your church in numbers, but your people in spiritual maturity. This process is based on the biblical foundation of Acts 1:8 and Matt. 28:18-20.
The All-church TEAM consisting of leadership, church communicators, and the congregation that your church needs to involve to make this successful and specifically what each group needs to do.
The Multi-channel COMMUNICATIONS in digital and print format that you need for each step of the process, examples, and tips to make the most of these.
The EVALUATION & ENCOURAGEMENT that you need to do after your event to make this Strategy part of the DNA of your church and use it to continuously make times of Seasonal Celebrations times of evangelism and discipleship for your church.

In addition to the core training, there is also a 30-minute Bonus video: How to Adapt Successful Seasonal Strategies for a Year of Seasonal Celebrations, that gives you examples and tips you can use throughout the year and SAMPLE TEMPLATES you can download and use.

Every year churches host hundreds of people at seasonal events. They see them once, they may have a great time, but then they are gone. This course can change that scenario from a truly tragic lost opportunity to the opportunity for your church to consistently grow in numbers and also where your current members can grow in discipleship maturity as they invite unchurched friends to the event and serve to connect them with the church on an ongoing basis.

If done on a consistent basis the principles in this course can totally change your church and make times of seasonal events times of consistent numerical and spiritual growth.
