I am writing the material for our Fall Church-wide Campaign, entitled Tru Calling: Praying in a Way that Makes a Difference. This is the eleventh campaign that I have either written or helped develop. At Woodland, we call them Adventures instead of campaigns, but they work the same way.
It's hard to argue with the effectiveness of church-wide campaigns. Six-week series of sermons, small group discussion guides, and personal devotional or reflection guide combined with some form of actionable objective help create an effective learning and discipleship environment. And they help get disconnected people connecting in a small group on a short-term basis, proving a low risk, easy-in/easy-out opportunity for people to explore community.
An essential ingredient to an effective campaign is finding the material that fits your church's situation. This means you need options. Visit my website to review nine options to consider. And you can download the basic resources for free. That's right, you can have these for FREE. And there's a way to also purchase them. Check them out.
