Verona part of Worship Summitby Kevin Butler
An ad for the Summit (and the Verona church) is on a Christian events website at www.itickets.com. Check it out!
Pastor Steve James offered the Integrity Music network the idea that the Verona church would need to have the 2-hour delay, since they will be worshipping during the beginning of that day's broadcast. He pitched the idea that attendees could come "early" for the 10:00 worship service and see the very things the Summit is all about: "small church, small budget," doing big things for God, blending traditional and contemporary elements in one service...
The Network said that they were "very impressed" and the Verona church was approved as one of 168 host sites in the U.S.
The display ad at itickets.com gives the church good exposure, along with:
-- an e-mail blast to 2,132 subscribers within 90 miles of the church
-- a snail-mailed flier and letter about the Summit sent to over 110 churches in four counties, with a follow-up postcard
-- a posting on K-LOVE Radio's bulletin board
-- the Verona worship team networking with other worship leaders
-- posters in local Christian bookstores
-- local newspaper articles and announcements
Pastor Steve says, "Who knows what could happen related to the Sabbath and Seventh Day Baptists as a result of our 'name' getting out there in this way. I'm excited about the possibilities and the ultimate potential within the Body of Christ by having this platform that our involvement in the Summit provides."
