ReFocus on Outreach Effectiveness

The National Outreach Convention Nov 3-5 in San Diego offers an opportunity to refocus and increase your outreach effectiveness.

According to George Barna, half of all US churches did not add one new member through conversion growth last year. Has outreach been moved to the back burner in your church?

Effective outreach to an increasingly unchurched population is urgent and nonnegotiable. Don't allow the pressures of programming, staffing, budget cuts, equipment needs and all the myriad of ministry "have to's" distract you from the primary reason your church exists. Even the best programs are wasted, if they don't result in reaching people with the truth of the Gospel.

Make outreach and evangelism a priority and ReFOCUS your Outreach by joining hundreds of other leaders at the National Outreach Convention. Equip your team to create effective assimilation strategies. Get the ideas and help you need to make outreach a priority.

Learn proven outreach strategies from today's outreach leaders.
Network with others and discover what has and hasn't worked for them.
Be re-tooled for increased outreach effectiveness.

Save up to $50 per person by registering by Aug. 31. For infomration visit http://outreachconvention.com.
