How to attract young people to your church

Every church wants to increase the number of young people in its congregation. Tim Gibson asks a range of experts how best to do it

Ask a church member what they most want from their minister or priest and you’ll very often encounter the same reply: “We want more young people in our church.”

Grow Your Church Membership and Boost Attendance Through SMS Messaging

When you implement a church text messaging solution to communicate with new and existing parishioners, you are tapping into a powerful form of communication. New visitors to your church often want to learn how to become more involved, while active parishioners may want more ways to stay connected. When you use texting to reach your church members, you will also be able to reach your younger parishioners using their favorite medium of communication. Text messages are read quickly, as most people are constantly attached to their phone.

New Forms to help your church save time and connect with more people

At ChurchDesk we strive to make your jobs easier. An online form is an important tool for that but users reported that our old Forms were too complicated to use. So we set out to create a completely new version of our Forms to improve that.

It also allows you to start experimenting and comparing what works and what does not.
