2013 at Verve: Can You Help?

I am PUMPED about 2013 at Verve.  We have been (and are currently) working hard on doing a better job of assimilating new people and discipling new Christians.  We’re adding some teams and systems and fine tuning others.  We now feel like we can do an even better job with the people God gives us.

In 2013 we have three BIG initiatives to bring in more new people.  There are still 1.8 million people in Las Vegas who don’t go to church, most of them don’t know Jesus, they all need to, and we’re the right church for manyof them.  The problem is that almost all of them don’t know we exist.  So in 2013 we are:

  • Doing a big “God For The Rest Of Us” advertising campaign in February.  We’re hoping to do a billboard, door hangers, magazine and radio ads, and more.  This would be our first really multi-faceted, integrated advertising campaign and we’re excited to see what God will do with it.
  • Launching online services in February.  We’ll be offering these online services at strategic times for people whose work schedules don’t allow them to attend our current “live” services.  We also hope allowing people to see what we do online will help take away some of the fear and will get them to show up.
  • In March we’re going to start having some Ververs host very strategic block parties.  We hope they’ll help build community in neighborhoods (desperately needed in our city) and give us a chance to build relationships with and invite our neighbors to Verve.
As you might imagine, this is all going to cost money.  In fact, we are trying to raise $77,777 to pay for the marketing and for the equipment we will need to do online services and block parties.  Would you be willing to help make this dream a reality and be a part of reaching people in Las Vegas who really need Jesus?  If so, that would be fantastic, we would appreciate it, and you would be making an eternal difference with your money.  If you’d like to contribute, you can do so at 2013.vivalaverve.org.
