 June 4, 2022

  • Make an announcement from the front or on streaming church service. There is nothing wrong with making several pulpit appeals for Message throughout the summer. The more times you bring it up, the better chance you’ll have of reinforcing power of witnessing with Message. We’ve included a script for a short, ready-made appeal but it’s even better if you use your own words.
  • Pray. Involve your small group or prayer chain in praying that God will start a mighty movement for outreach in your church.

June 11

  • Show the “Inside Look” Message video. We’ll provide a new video for the month of June about the life-changing content in Message.

  • Show the “All-Star Witnessing”  campaign video. Every month during the campaign we’ll give you a new video to show how church members are using Message for evangelism.
  • Plan a “Message Tract attack” for July 23. Allow us to help you organize an effective, trackable, measurable engagement (complete with tracts, QR codes and a customized landing page on your church website) for your tract attack day. For details and help setting it up, reach out to our marketing team at admin@onthebrinkmediagroup.com. They will work with you to get you going.

June 25

  • Be a Personal Ministry Coach. There’s nothing more powerful than a one-on-one appeal. Make yourself available as a “Personal Ministry Coach.” Set up a station in the church lobby or simply start conversations with different members. You might ask them if they have a burden for specific friends or family members that they’d like to be baptized. What are those friends like? Would they appreciate Message? Would they be open to attending a church program?
  • If they’ve never heard of Message, you can tell them how the magazine is designed specifically to bring people of color into a saving truth. During the summer sale, a 1 year subscription of 6 magazines is just $14.99. Let them know that they can subscribe online at www.MessageMagazine.com/subscribe.
