Who Writes All of Your First Time Guest Notes? (Your Fusion Webinar Questions Answered)

fusion_bookjpg2I want to thank all of you who joined me for The Fusion Webinar on Tuesday.

We had a great turnout and it was a privilege to teach so many of you the Assimilation principles that have helped thousands of churches over the last few years.

You sent in a number of questions after the webinar, and I wanted to take a moment today and next week to answer a few of the more common questions:

Q: When you say “I send every first time guest a handwritten note,” do you seriously mean you write each note personally, or does your team handle this and sign your name?

A: Great question.  It is greatly beneficial for the lead pastor (or whichever pastor taught that week) to hold those cards each week, to read the names of the first time guests and pray for them by name.

However, I must say that with 70+ first-time guests each week at The Journey, I have had to back off on writing each and every note myself.  I have a team that helps me complete them these days, but I still make it a point to write a few of them personally and pray over all the names each week.

Whether you were on The Fusion Webinar this week or not, let me encourage you to take some time today (and over the next couple of weeks) to tweak and improve your church’s Assimilation System.

Easter is only 18 days away and God will likely trust you with more First Time Guests that day than any other day this year.

Be sure that you’re doing everything you possibly can to prove faithful!

P.S. If you’re looking for the ultimate Assimilation training (far beyond the basics), check out The Assimilation Intensive Workshop.
