Detailed Launch Proposal
This is more of a detailed break down of our mission and our target audience. Many churches want to reach everyone, but when it comes to planning it’s best to have a detailed target audience in mind.
Launch Plan Booklet
This was our launch plan, we used this to share the vision for Uplift Church to donors and possible launch team members.
Pre Launch Checklist
This checklist starts one year prior to the launch.
General Fundraising Letter
This can been sent to friends and family as a general letter. It’s very important to do a follow-up phone call and ask for a specific amount. If you do not ask for what you need there’s a great chance that you will not get it. When making calls have a giving chart and plan to ask for an amount that you believe that person may be able to give ($50, $100, $1,000).
Worship Guide Outside
Used to provide guest with information about our church. This is not a worship agenda. We do not provide an agenda only the worship guide.
This is critical, we ask guest to fill out this card and place it in the offering basket, this helps with follow up and provides more information that can be tracked with regard to our guests.
Visitor Follow up
Visitor Follow Up Email
Each Monday following service each visitor receives an email. They receive a thank you for visiting phone call between Wednesday and Thursday.
Visitor Follow Up Letter
On Wednesday letters are placed in the mail for our first time visitors
Salvation-Recommitment letter 2014
For persons who make a decision to commit to Christ we send a congrats letter.
This was our direct mail piece. Direct mail is a great way to announce a new church but keep in mind it is not cheap but it’s very measurable and effective. Research suggest that direct mail has about a 1/2 of 1% return rate. So if you do a 40,000 piece mailer look for 150-200 to respond. We used MailWorks II for our direct mail campaign.
Banners and Signs
Outside Flag Banners
Proper signage is essential, below are links to some great printers for your banners and signs.
