One Reason Why No Church Growth

There are many reasons a church might not be growing. We are going to go over one reason today. Do you have a follow-up system? What happens when a visitor or guest comes to your church for the first time?

How are they greeted and treated? The first impression is how people frame in their minds if they will come back.

First-time follow-up in the first 36 hours is very important. There are other important questions that the first-time visitor might have and they need to be responded to as soon as possible.


  • Adult Small Groups
  • Committing Life To Christ
  • How to Become a Christian
  • How to Join this Church Family
  • Want to be Baptized
  • Want to be Discipled/Mentored
  • Youth Activities

Church Growth Software can track this information so it will lose nothing in the church growth process. This is the key needed in church growth. If you want, to use a church assimilation process you will need to use church growth tools that can track the process. This important process should be part of any church management software that is designed for church growth.

Here is how the church growth follow-up process works with Church Growth Software.

When a person attends your church for the first time, they fill out a visitor or connection card. From there you enter the information into the church management software. In the person’s personal information area, you click on the visits tab and you enter the date for the first time, the second time, or the third time in the visit box.

Visitor Information

They might have checked off other things they are interested in. So when you go to the Welcome Card Info Tab you can select those items. You can edit these letters before printing. You generate a form letter for each of these checked-off boxes.

Welcome Card Topic

After you entered all the selections, you would go to the Reports section of Church Growth Software and click on Letters. There you will be asked if you want to edit the follow-up letters.

Follow up Letters 3

You will print a letter for each of the items that were checked off on the visitor or connection card. Click Here To See A Sample of These Letters. These follow-up letters for the recent visitors are only available for one week. This keeps the follow-up in the time for the recent visitor not to lose interest.

We have more information on our website about this follow-up system at Purpose Driven Church.
