Special Invitation from Nelson Searcy:

Dear Senior Pastor,

What would it look like if you were to DOUBLE the number of first-time guests who return to your church?

The fact is that nothing impacts the growth of your church FASTER than Assimilation­ — the process of welcoming first-time guests, keeping them coming back and eventually moving them to membership.

See, since 2006, I have had the privilege of coaching over 3,000 pastors in my coaching networks to grow their churches through this Power of Assimilation. The turnarounds I’ve seen have been dramatic. Even with churches that are 100 to 150 years old and stagnant for a long time.

I’m excited to partner with a few of these alumni churches for this special New Assimilation Seminar tour across the country! Scroll down to find the location nearest you below and the host pastor who will be leading and teaching this Seminar live. I will be attending via video in ALL locations.

Using the tools in this LIVE Seminar, you can at minimum grow by 52 people a year if you keep just ONE MORE first-time guest each week!

I encourage you to sign up for this one-time event now and discover the secrets to accelerated growth in your church!

Helping you reach and keep more guests,

Nelson Searcy

P.S. Feel free to invite as many other Senior Pastors who you know – in fact, I would greatly appreciate your help in getting the word out. I promise it will be worth their time. Thank you in advance!

The challenge all of us face as church leaders: You have people attending each week for the first time but it’s difficult to get them to return to church for a second time. And if WE DON’T GET THEM TO COME BACK, they are never going to become fully developing followers of Jesus.

It’s such a challenge that the average church in America only keeps one out of every 20 people. That averages to about only 10 first-time guests per year.

Now imagine that same church making a few small changes and now improving that number to keep 1 out of every 10!

How many more lives could be transformed?

The great news is there IS a proven process to welcome first-time guests, get them to return again and again, and effectively move them to membership and an ongoing relationship with Christ.

It’s called Assimilation — and nothing will grow your church faster!

What if you could learn these Assimilation principles from someone who has developed and improved them with over 3,000 churches across all sizes and denominations.

To that end, Pastor Nelson has put together the ultimate LIVE Assimilation seminar for you — completely updated with the latest learnings and strategies.

And now you too can discover the Power of Assimilation to keep more first-time guests and grow your church faster than ever!

First-time guests are a gift from God and you can maximize every opportunity to make them feel fully welcomed when they come to your church.

In fact, it is possible to DOUBLE the number of first-time guests who return to your church!

Are you ready to welcome more guests and experience this exponential growth?

Learn the complete Assimilation system to reach and keep more first-time guests in your church!

Pastor and church growth strategist Nelson Searcy is partnering with pastors across the country to bring you this valuable training LIVE. This is Nelson’s proven New Assimilation Seminar co-taught with pastors who are all part of Nelson’s Titanium Coaching Network and have implemented these principles in their own churches. This is the first time this updated material has been shared in a LIVE event — or in any venue outside of Nelson’s private coaching sessions.

During this 3-hour LIVE seminar you will learn:

  • The one word you should NEVER use to welcome new people to your church
  • The three critical steps to an effective Assimilation process
  • How to identify the holes in your welcome experience and prevent first-time guests from falling through the cracks
  • Two principles you can implement THIS WEEK to jump-start your system — and see faster results!
  • Four key areas of creating an impactful first-time guest experience
  • How to train the volunteers who will be welcoming your new guests — and what you should be practicing with them
  • The most effective, proven tool for collecting information from first-time guests — and the three-step process you must follow to deliver it
  • How to make it easy and comfortable for first-time guests to share their information with you (hint – this involves EVERYONE at your church)
  • What contact information you must collect at a minimum to be effective in your first-time guest follow-up
  • The three requirements of a helpful resource center — and six areas that you should have covered
  • What vital communications must happen within the first 36 hours, the first 96 hours and the first 30 days
  • The secret method that will exponentially increase first-time guest response and position you to receive God’s trust
  • One of the strongest indicators of the future health and growth of your church — and what you need to start measuring NOW
  • The most important place you can focus your attention when it comes to second-time guests
  • The critical communications that must happen within the first 36 hours and then the first 96 hours (and how they differ from first-time guests)
  • The critical step for a regular attender that must (always) precede church membership
  • Breakdown of an impactful membership class, including format needs and sample documents
  • The one method you can start TOMORROW and see dramatic improvements to your Assimilation rate (it’s easier than you think!)
  • How you can continue to build your Assimilation system month-after-month yet in the shortest time possible
  • …and much more!
