Stephen Colbert on Extreme Measures for Boosting Church Attendance

April 22, 2014 by

It’s been a long build-up to Easter and a crazy Holy Week and church communicators everywhere are exhausted. What some of us need this week is the encouragement and challenge that creative arts pastor Kelvin Co shared last year when he encouraged us to celebrate, evaluate, reset and recharge in his post Easter Is Over, Now What?

That’s all well and good, but some others of us need something else during this week’s post-Easter crash. How about some Stephen Colbert?

“People aren’t going to church. Evidently, somebody blabbed about the ‘God is everywhere’ loophole.” -Stephen Colbert

The day after Easter, Stephen took a look at church marketing in his clip, “Extreme Measures for Boosting Church Attendance,” looking specifically at mixed martial arts as outreach.
