Your community is shifting – Five Areas
The number of foreign born internationals in the USA has dramatically increased in the last 20 years. Most likely, your community has changed even in the last five years! Most churches are not aware of this. Is yours? We are going to discuss five areas in which your church can represent internationals more effectively.
GHI can help your church develop an identifiable and measurable strategy for reaching the internationals in your community. Representation is one strategic step every church can take in order to reach internationals.
Everyone of us knows the comfort of walking into a room full of people who share the same nationality as us. We also know the intimidation of walking into a room full of people of another nationality. This doesn’t mean we are fearful or prejudiced. It is just normal to be comforted when we see someone like us. The same is true for internationals too! They will feel comforted to see people with a face like theirs.
Here are five areas in which your church can represent internationals:
- Parking Team
- Welcome Team
- Worship Team
- Children’s Ministry Team
- Student Ministry Team
If you already have internationals in your church, ask them to help you reach their people. Strategically plug them in as volunteers into these five areas. Long before visitors check out the speaker and those on platform they have already sized up your church based upon their experience in these five areas.
Without a lot of effort, your church can represent the internationals in your community on these five teams. It will be invaluable to Internationals for them to see people with their same face engaged in your church.
