Can’t You Just Use Those Tear-Off Communication Cards? (Your Fusion Webinar Questions Answered)

I’m answering another one of the most common questions today from last week’s Fusion Webinar.

Now is one of the most fruitful times of the year to tweak  your church’s Assimilation System – to connect all of your upcoming Easter guests to your church in the coming weeks and months.

Here’s today’s question:

Q: What’s the difference between using your style of connection card and the perforated, “tear-off” communication cards?

A: I discourage the use of the perforated cards, and here are a few of the reasons why:

  1. They’re entirely too small for people to comfortably fill them out – especially the physical and email address sections
  2. They are typically printing on very lightweight paper that’s hard to complete in one’s lap during the service
  3. It’s tough to cleanly tear out the card without ripping it

Each of these issues may sound petty, but any one of them provide an excuse for a first time guest at your church to stop filling in their information (and if you don’t have their contact information, you can’t follow up with them)..

Easter is only 12 days away – are you prepared to be a good steward of the first time guests (gifts) that God sends to your church?

P.S. If you’re looking for a primer to improve your church’s Assimilation, you can immediately download The Assimilation Seminar.
