Promote your next church event with some fresh ideas. When you host church events they can become lost in the sea of signs people pass or be easily forgotten unless creative and new promotion techniques get infused into the promotion strategies. It’s always worthwhile to have a library of new and fresh ideas you can use to create, elevate, and expand your church events. We’ll walk through 20 ideas we have had or seen that will help get the word out in your community about your events. Take what you can and build your strategies with innovative ways to be seen and have your events be found online.
We thought now might be a good time to share that we believe promoting events is an essential part of hosting events. No one can come if they don’t know the event is happening. We know you know this, but how do people share church events? How can you reach everyone to let them know? Well, that is where it gets a bit trickier. But I hope we can all agree that you must be promoting events you want people in your community to come to, whether your desired audiences are inside or outside of the congregation. How much or how little promotion goes ahead of sharing an event is entirely up to the event itself, the budget you have, and your reach in your community and online. With that said, here are some things to consider before jumping into promotion strategies.
Events are a part of church community involvement. As the hands and feet of the body of Christ we know we should be in the community and actively improving the community. One way many churches do this is through fun and meaningful activities and events. But we can’t have successful community outreach without successful community awareness campaigns so some of these ideas are long term goals that will help you promote successful church events over time, and that’s ok! Have some short term goals and long term goals and hopefully this list will help you make some plans, make some goals and achieve great events and deep community partnerships.
