Church Marketing Quotes

October 20, 2005 by

Check out the Austin American-Statesman for yours truly. Brad and I were quoted in an article about church marketing, though we definitely didn’t have the best quotes.

Mac Richard of Lake Hills Church in Austin, Texas had a nice one:

“The world calls it marketing. The Bible calls it evangelism.”

The Rev. Larry Hollon, CEO of communications for the Nashville, Tenn.-based United Methodist Church:

“This is not a matter of choosing to do communications or to do ministry. It is including communications in the ministry of the church as it is right to do.”

And Scott Evans, the founder and president of Outreach:

“Ten to 15 years ago, churches were asking, ‘Should we be doing it?’ Now they’re realizing that they have to do it.”
