Searcy Speaks

The last few days, Nelson Searcy has been answering assimilation questions on his blog, Church Leader Insights. These posts are a MUST READ if you are seeking to improve in the area of assimilation. Searcy’s posts include answers to the following questions:

  1. What do you say to get people to fill out their Connection Cards?
  2. Do you do a newcomer’s reception?
  3. Do guests have to hand their Connection Cards in to someone in exchange for the free gift?
  4. How do you measure your Connection Card completion rate?
  5. How do you get both husband and wife to fill out a Connection Card?

I recently featured Searcy’s excellent assimilation book, Fusion: Turning First-Time Guests into Fully-Engaged Members of Your Church here on my blog. Be sure to get your own copy of his book and check out these recent posts:

I also recently purchased The Systems Seminar Package from Church Leader Insights and I recommend it to any church. The package includes the following:

  • The Worship Planning Seminar
  • The Evangelism Seminar
  • The Assimilation Seminar
  • The Small Groups Seminar
  • The Stewardship Seminar
  • The Strategy Seminar

One other note of recommendation. I had a little trouble with a download from Church Leader Insights. When I called to talk to them about the problem, they were extremely gracious and generous in correcting the problem. No wonder their ministry and church is growing!!!
