Marketing God Like Beer and Sports Cars

OldTruth.com See link above for more video clips. You-know-what sells sports cars and beer but who would have thought that churches would resort to “selling God” using the same marketing ploy. Once again it’s the “what can God do for you” approach to getting people to fill the pews. Today’s sermons are all about helping you with your marriage, pleasure, job, family, investments. Gone are the centuries of Christianity in which churches taught about the character of God and the worship of him. If an approach pragmatically gets people in the pews and is thought to enhance evangelism, well then that’s all that matters today. Listen in this CNN segment of the video as the pastor essentially says “IF I’ve offended you then I’m sorry, but I’d do it again in a heart beat, therefore I’m not really sorry after all”. The pastor whose church mocked the community with the ‘rap remix’ often calls Christians who disagree with his methods ‘Pharisee’ and claims that everyone who complained about his racy postcards were more of the same. How does he know that they are Christians that he’s offended? as opposed to common folk who just as readily don’t want their small children watching a R-rated movie than see his church’s postcards. Some perhaps are Roman Catholics who externally care about morality and mention God in their complaints. All of these people need OUTREACH not a church who mocks them. Unfortunately these types of sermons have become the norm in today’s seeker centered churches

Smells Like Teen Marketing

tomorrowsworld.org Are young people just another demographic, waiting for advertisers to sell them on the latest consumer goods, lifestyles—or religions? As I read the comics one recent morning, a strip caught my eye. Its first panel showed a young man skateboarding, talking about something exciting: “Its totally awesome, dude!” The third panel revealed the punch line: the skateboarder was in a commercial trying to get kids to invest in the stock market. The last panel showed two teenagers watching the commercial, as one said to the other: “I hate the way they all pander to our generation.” This reminded me of a huge billboard I used to see during my daily commute in Dallas, Texas. It, too, showed a skateboarder—and featured a similarly blatant attempt at pandering to a market: “Look! This is cool! Check it out, teens!” That billboard, however, was advertising a church. There is nothing wrong with a church helping all generations see how Gods word is relevant in their lives. But, like the teenage protagonist in our comic strip, I am tired of seeing churches pander to teens and young adults. “Hey, teens—our church is radical! Look, theres a guy on a skateboard! You teens like skateboarding, right? And hey, look! A picture of a guy playing an electric guitar! All you young people like rocking out like our middle-aged marketing execs said you do, right? Awesome, dude!” Please! Such condescending appeals risk two dangerous consequences. First, they may cause exactly the

Is Your Church Social – Part 12 – Facebook – Stealth Church Marketing

Is Your Church Social – Part 12 – Facebook – Stealth Church Marketing

Facebook has become the most popular social networking website on the Internet. Millions of people have a profile and most people have lots of friends. Their friends may range from family members, to people they work with, to friends from college or high school. Most of your church’s members who are on Facebook have friends who are not church members. So, how can this help you in your church marketing strategy?

The Power of a Network:

One of the best features on Facebook and probably the reason Facebook has done so well, is the News Feed feature. The way the News Feed works is that whenever a person does something on their profile, whether it’s posting pictures, saying what they are doing, or one of their friends writing on their wall, a news story is created and added to the profile’s News Feed. That story is then not only posted on that person’s profile, but it is also distributed to all of their friends. So, if you post a picture to your profile, all of your friends are instantly made aware of that. That could be tens or hundreds of people…even thousands of people (if you’re really popular). If your friends post something about the photos, then their friends are made aware of the photos. You can see how word can spread very quickly to a lot of people.

Stealth Church Marketing and Evangelism:

I’m sure by now every reader of my articles has created a Facebook Page for their church;). And, of course, once you created your Facebook Page, you announced it at church and every one of your members who have a Facebook profile went home and immediately became a “fan” of the church. Members who weren’t on Facebook went home and created a profile so they could become a fan. Maybe that’s an overly rosy picture, but when each one of your members signed up as a fan, a news story was created on their profile and their news feed sent out a message to all their friends telling everyone that they are now a fan of your church. So, if your church has 100 members on Facebook and each of them has only 10 friends, 1000 people could have had a message come up on their Facebook profile that told them about your church. Not bad for a minute’s work. And it was done in a completely natural way.

Most people who are on Facebook live out their lives to some extent on Facebook. It’s part of the fun. People post comments about what they are doing at any given time like, “Kurt is watching his dogs destroy their new toy” or “Bob is getting his Jack Bauer on. 24 Rocks!” or they post pictures from their trip to South Dakota. With people living out their lives on Facebook, it’s completely natural for members of your church to post things related to your church and their relationship with Christ. After all, that’s part of their lives. Whether it is becoming a fan of the church, posting pictures from a church event they attended, or posting a comment how Christ is working in their lives, your members can be adding things about your church and their faith to their profile and spreading the word about Christ and your church to all their friends in a way that is not invasive. Many people are uncomfortable approaching someone directly to tell them about Christ. While that is still something we should be doing, Facebook provides a way to share our lives with Christ indirectly. It doesn’t seem like marketing or evangelism, but it is.

A Recommendation and a Sneak Peek:

In addition to the fact that this form of church marketing on Facebook is stealthy, it is also a subtle recommendation for the church as well a sneak peek into what the church is like. One of the best forms of marketing for any church or business is the recommendation of that church or business to a friend. We don’t always believe what a company or organization tells us, but if a friend tells me that he really likes a particular product, I’m much more likely to get that product. By posting positive things about their experiences in church, your members are in effect recommending the church to their friends. That can have a profound effect. Your members are also providing a window for their friends to see what your church is like. If their friends are not familiar with church or had a bad experience at a church, this can be a great way to show them what your church is like and make them feel more comfortable visiting.

It’s the secret power of Facebook for church marketing and evangelism. By encouraging your members to include their church lives on Facebook, they can be telling others about the church. More importantly, by including their life with Christ on Facebook, they can be sharing the love of Christ with their friends. After all, “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14)…even on Facebook.
