Resurrection Day services remain one of the largest evangelistic opportunities for churches, particularly this year with the culmination of the GPS: Across North America campaign in many churches. Here are some key points for following up with guests:
Visit – Make an initial contact as soon as possible, possibly offering a small gift and information about the church.
Prayer – Ask guests how you can pray for them as a bridge to spiritual conversations.
Enroll – Participation in a small group fosters relationships with believers and provides an ideal forum for getting questions answered.
Minister – Identify needs newcomers have that your church or small group can meet.
Invite – Research shows 82 percent of nonchurched Americans will attend a small group if asked, but only 20 percent have been invited.
