Cathy Townley & Gary Step: From Readiness to Launch – Staring a New Worship Service in an existing church
The Right Steps in the Right Order for the Right Locale
Worship is — even now in our 21st de-churched American culture — the single most important way for your church to reach new people with your understanding of the Gospel. Many new people are interested in giving Christianity a try. Most will come to a new service before an existing one. It’s way-worth it for a church to learn how to connect the dots to gain outreach-traction through worship. In this webinar you will learn:
1. How to know if you’re ready to start a new service (and how to get ready if you’re not)
2. How to build congregational support and encourage participation in doing something new
3. How to identify, organize, train and deploy members and their friends to engage the mission field\
4. How to plan a timeline and keep a schedule for an impactful, vibrant new service launch
Cathy Townley, a former worship leader, is a speaker, author, teacher, coach and now videographer! With Gary Step, Associate Director of Congregational Vibrancy of the Michigan Conference of the United Methodist Church, Cathy has developed a clear process for starting a new service that sticks. Cathy and Gary had landed on upwards of a 50% success rate for churches starting something new, even though most new start efforts tend to fail. Cathy and Gary have developed numerous topical teaching videos that give congregations their best foot forward. We are excited to interact with you in this webinar!
