How to Use This to Build Your Church

Site has been developed to use as a seminar to invite prospective members to your church.

Freedom from debt was taught by Jesus in Luke 4:18-19 when he told of his mission statement to free the prisoners. Good news was to be preached to the poor and blind and oppressed of the world. We have been overcome with debt problems and become blind to our finance companies and become ineffective in ministering to others because we have to spend so much time and energy just funding our debts.

If you want to grow a mighty church, follow the example of David in 1 Sam 22:2. "All those who were in distress or in debt or discontented gathered around him, and he became their leader. About four hundred men were with him."

These four hundred were the begining of the personal development of David and his mighty men. You may read about them in 2 Samuel 23:8-39.

How to get people to this seminar

1. Establish a time and date for your seminar. I would suggest doing these quarterly in your church. Make up some flyers which are attractive and informative. I will try and place some examples on this web site soon. If you have one, please send me a copy.

2. Target your neighborhood around your church. Organize some faithful members to pass them out in the neighborhood.

3. Pass out flyers at the local supermarkets as folks leave the market. Dress nicely, be friendly and reflect the Lord.

4. Target younger couples with small children. One effective way is to visit your local McDonald's if they have one of those play areas. Some restaurants have special days for family meals and inexpensive happy meals. Parents take the kids to play, and then just sit around and talk. Take your young kids and grandkids, let them play, and you can meet lots of folks with real needs. Single parents flock to these places.

5. Advertise on local bulletin boards, local newspapers, local TV cable channels. Use your imagination.

6. Have everyone in your church commit to inviting five people from work or their neighborhood to the seminar.

7. Target local health clubs. These are active folks. Use other members influence in local civic clubs to pass out flyers. I would target the promotion no more than one to two weeks from your seminar date. People will forget beyond that.

8. Make it a matter of prayer for your church. Remember that Jesus met people's needs, healing the blind, etc, before he dealt with their spiritual needs. Read John 9 for an example of that.

I would be happy to come do this seminar for you. I do not charge anything for this. I am happy with the knowledge of knowing I have helped people get out of their debt prison.

Locally, in the Tidewater Virginia area, I am available for this seminar. Out of town arrangements can be made if you pay for my transportation and housing. A good old fried chicken dinner from one of the church ladies would not be turned down.

The Christian Counter

You may copy any of this website, and convert it to overhead slides, or power point presentation if you wish, and do the seminar yourself. Nothing is copywritten, but I would be thilled to hear success stories if this is working in your town.

I give God the glory and the credit for all He has taught me. I only hope I can practice what I preach. I am just a fellow pilgrim along the same path.
