It’s not to late to invite a friend to worship this Easter Sunday. In fact, if you have a staff, why not ask each of them to invite at least one friend today or Saturday and offer to go by and pick them up.
“82 percent of unchurched people are at least “somewhat likely” to attend church if they are invited. Perhaps we need to pause on this response. Perhaps we need to restate it: More than eight out of ten unchurched people said they would come to church if they were invited. If you take anything from this book, please remember this point.” (Rainer, Unchurched Next Door)
The problem is, just a handful of Christians take the time to invite a friend, much less develop the relationship with them that needs to precede the invitation.
So what are you waiting for? The phone is just a step away- the next door neighbor just a few steps away. the person you work side by side with just a few miles away.
