Just today, I invited a few youthworker friends to join a network that I’m involved with. I shared the difference it’s made in my life/ministry and passed on a email with all the important information about the organization. One friend responded pretty quickly and basically said, “I would have normally just deleted the email, but since it was from you, I’m intrigued.” I can relate to that thought! I get so many emails everyday…even emails about things I’m interested in tend to get glossed over, deleted, or “filed away for later”. BUT, a personal note from someone I trust changes the priority level of that email. There’s power in a personal invitation.
Let me encourage you to consider who you can invite to church with you. Sharing the difference it’s made in your life and extending an invitation may be just the thing they need.
