Summer is in its final throes across the U.S. That means autumn is fast approaching, bringing it with it one of the greatest opportunities you have all year to reach the people of your community with a Big Day!
A big day is an all-out push toward a single Sunday for the purpose of breaking the next growth barrier and setting an attendance record, in order to reach as many people as possible for Jesus.
And one of the best times for such a day occurs about a month after school starts back – so time is of the essence, but you can still conduct a powerful, life-changing Big Day at your church this fall.
I go into great detail in my book Ignite and The Ignite Seminar as to HOW (the step-by-step process) to prepare for a Big Day, but today I want to focus on WHY you should not neglect this opportunity.
Here are the top four reasons for you to plan and conduct a Big Day this fall:
1. To reach new people
The biggest reason is to cooperate with God in reaching the most people possible for the kingdom while we still can. You can’t just stick to the status quo and assume that your people will be filled with a passion to reach others for Jesus. The vision for a big day begins with a heart to reach new people before God’s final big day.
2. To make the devil mad
Every once in a while it’s good to do something that will irk Satan. If he’s not bothered by what you are doing, you must not be doing much against his cause. Or as a pastor/mentor of mine once advised me, ‘If you haven’t met the devil head on lately, maybe its because you are moving in the same direction!’
3. To grow the Christians in your church
When you share your vision for reaching a new level through a big day, you will find people more than willing to give extra time and energy to the cause. You will spur them on to greater spiritual growth by giving them the opportunity to take part in something bigger than themselves.
4. To build momentum in your church
Big days build momentum by uniting your people in a common goal, attracting buzz from the community, and propelling you to the next level of growth.
So Are You Convinced Yet?
Set the date today and begin doing everything you can to plan, prepare and conduct a Big Day to reach the people in your community like never before – and set the tone for an amazing season of ministry.

P.S. I’d like to help you plan and prepare for all of your Big Days next year – as well as provide you with the training and tools you need to upgrade your church’s systems for greater health and growth.
My brand new Tele-Coaching Network for Senior Pastors begins THIS Thursday, August 30, and I still have a few more spots for pastors like you (who are serious about reaching people for Christ).
