OK. Church and Marketing. Do these two words go together? Hopefully in the sense that we have Good News and want to share it. I created a Congregational Development page at the Diocese of Georgia website which deals with some of these issues. If anyone know of other resources to include there, please comment below and let me know.
One caveat worth naming...I feel that there are many things a church can do that are good things for churches to do and have as a bonus that they attract people to the church. But in general I am quite opposed to doing things so as to grow a church. It is far better to do things so as to BE the Body of Christ and I imagine that in doing so, church growth happens both numerically and spiritually for those already present. End of sermon/rant. Ideas appreciated.
