National Outreach Convention

Church OutreachI’ve been given a pass to attend the National Outreach Convention. I listened to the promo video, it says:

Every day in America, 6 new churches are born but 8 close their doors.
Only 6% of churches are growing at the pace of their community.
95% of Christians have never led a person to Christ.

Their conclusion, Churches are not effective ambassadors for Jesus. It will be interesting to see all the outreach ‘technology & techniques’ and see what they are all about….these include:

Youth Outreach – How to better reach youth and empower Christian youth to reach their peers and the local community.
Children’s Outreach – How to create empowering ministry that reaches children and families in your community.
