Outreach Process and Tools

startup, meeting, brainstorming

The value of an outreach process is that it focuses people on being intentional about outreach. An effective outreach process facilitates identification of the actions that a congregation plans on taking when engaging nonchurched people through outreach events, activities, and ministries.  

It is important to recognize that there is not a single “correct” outreach process. There are many ways in which a congregation can systematically plan outreach efforts. Whichever outreach process a congregation uses, it should ensure that the outreach process is clear, concise, and takes the perspective of nonchurched people into consideration.
