Why We Don't Invite People to Church

Posted by Matt Postiff August 7, 2014 on Matt Postiff's Blog under Church 

Last month, Chuck Lawless wrote an interesting post on what consultants have learned about the question of why church members don't invite others to church. I noticed that a lot of these reasons are "me" centered.

  1. I just don't think about it.
  2. I'm afraid I'll be rejected.
  3. The music isn't that good.
  4. The preaching isn't strong.
  5. We've got too many church problems right now.
  6. Our church is already too crowded.
  7. Nobody ever challenged me to invite anyone.
  8. I don't know how to start the conversation.
  9. It's the Spirit's job--not mine--to bring people to church.
  10. It's too far for people to come.
