We have been taking a multiple part blog series to evaluate a recent story sent to me from  John Newland, a 3 time coaching participant and the impact he saw on his Big Event because of all of the systems.

Today we’ll look and see the results of all his implementation of the 8 systems:

Our average worship attendance for the six weeks leading up to our event was: 263. 

The flu took away 15% of our workforce on the day of the event…but NO ONE panicked or even worried about anything. 

God showed up with PERFECT WEATHER to bless our prayers and planning. 

We had 715 people at our event. 

Our initial estimates are a minimum of 250 legitimate prospects as we feverishly work through the Connection Cards this morning. 

Our event is totally paid for, with about $3,000 more than we needed to cover the costs, some of which we will use to expand our initial plans for follow-up. 

Our morale was/is totally amazing throughout the entire church for the entire day until the last group left…after sitting around telling cool stories of what happened throughout the day. 

While we were at it, God showed up in incredible ways at our Fishers church plant and our Hispanic church plant with record weekends for both! 

Our teams were so thorough and amazing, that our property looks better than it does after a typical Sunday and the follow-up teams are busily working, while I thank God for everyone…and YOU. 

Your systems aren’t magic. They require a lot of work and attention. But mostly, your systems have helped us think through how we strategically partner with God to advance His Kingdom and enjoy the fruits of radically transformed lives. 

Thanks isn’t enough, but my thanks is genuine and deeply felt.
