Some churches think "advertising" is a bad word . . . and "marketing" is just a downright scary one. Many say, "Can't we can pray, and hope that people will come?" With our world in such turmoil, we can't afford to wait for the lost to ring our church's doorbell. We must act purposefully and intentionally to share the good news of the Gospel.

There are churches working hard to market themselves, but marketing dollars are limited. So, it's important to learn to use those dollars in the most effective way. Not to market harder, but to market smarter.
