New Covenant Baptist Church (NCBC) is an urban church with an average attendance of 140 per week. The pastor is about to start his fifth (5) month, after serving his previous church for seven (7) years. He has learned a few things at his previous church that will definitely be helpful at NCBC. With the church having the same pastor for over 20 years, there is some work that needs to be done. Times have changed and there needs to be a plan put in place to grow NCBC. .
1. Demographic Sketch.
2. Evangelism/Social Media/Web Presence.
3. Sunday School.
5. Worship Planning.
It has been quite a while since the church has experienced any growth and I would think that the best way to start is to let the people in the community where the church resides know that there is still a church called New Covenant Baptist Church and that you would love to see them on Sunday morning and during the week. I believe that the first thing that should be done is to evangelize in the community. But before we can do that we need to know who is in the area. We need to look at the demographics of the community. .
Demographics is being able to define the area by age, gender, marital status, income, health, household composition and employment. Demographics were done as far back as when Jesus was born. If you look at the scripture in Luke, you will see that when Jesus was born they held a census. Once we get that done, we will see who and what we are dealing with in the community and as a church we should start to reach out to those people. We would start with planning an event that would attract people to come, a musical with groups for all ages that people would love to come and hear. At this event we would reintroduce ourselves and the new pastor to the community. .
We will get teams together and start to train them on evangelism. We would first teach our team the "Four Spiritual Laws" by Bill Bright:.
1. God has a wonderful plan for your life.
