Why We Do What We Do

July 24, 2006 by

I tend to get nostalgic around important dates and since Church Marketing Sucks just turned two we thought it would be a good time to share what’s on our hearts. Over on the Center for Church Communication blog we’re starting a heart and soul series. It’s going to cover where we’ve been and where we’re going, what our dreams are and how we hope to get there. We hope you’ll join us on that journey and help us get there.

This week I start things off by talking about why we do what we do.

    How about a t-shirt that reads: “church marketing sucks, but so do I!”

    Never a bad idea to go back and take a look at your mission statement once in a while.

    Your quote,
    “We cringe at the thought of visitors being turned away by shoddy workmanship, by typos or eyebrow-raising moments.”
    Be sure to read the books “Why Men Hate Going To Church” by David Murrow and “No Man Left Behind” by Pat Morley. These books will tell you a variety of reasons that men are turned off to church. One of the reasons is lack of quality.
    A big “Amen” to what you are doing.
