We know that newcomers who become church members after attending the class I have created - and carefully outlined in my books - give more of their time, talents, and resources to growing their church and the Kingdom of God.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
Karol Peterson, the Christian Community Coach, announced the launch of ChristianCommunityCoach.com, an online resource for Christian churches wishing to build an effective newcomers ministry.
“A newcomers ministry can’t be an afterthought. It can and should be carefully planned, managed, and maintained,” said Peterson. “Growing a church, increasing membership and tithing, and really connecting members can be difficult if you don’t have a plan. ChristianCommunityCoach.com and my three book series on building effective newcomers ministries makes it easy for churches to master this important aspect of church life by giving them tools, strategies, and a time tested roadmap for success.”
To mark the launch of ChristianCommunityCoach.com, Peterson is releasing a new three book series to guide churches and ministry leaders through the process of building an effective newcomers ministry:
Mastering First Impressions: The Important and Often Overlooked First Step in Building an Effective Newcomers MinistryCreating a Dynamic Newcomers Class and Handbook: The Proven Method for Getting Newcomers Connected to and Energized About Your ChurchIdentifying Leaders: Attracting, Training and Empowering Effective Volunteer Leaders for Your Newcomers Ministry
“We know that newcomers who become church members after attending the class I have created - and carefully outlined in my books - give more of their time, talents, and resources to growing their church and the Kingdom of God,” said Peterson. “God has called me to this work, to build newcomers ministries, and to passionately help churches strengthen their first impressions and volunteer leadership. I am thrilled to share what I’ve learned through my new books, website and social media presence.”
