Great Marketing Seminar for Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Pratt City, Birmingham

Great Marketing Seminar for Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Pratt City, Birmingham

Exchanging Tips and Advice, Seminars and Lectures
If a room full of enthusiastic church-going folks and a pastor who sat through the entire seminar and asked questions about how to “get the word out” is any indication that the seminar was a success . . . then we had a great seminar recently at Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Pratt City, Birmingham, AL. The Reverend Dr. Matthew V. Johnson, Jr., senior pastor at Mt. Moriah in Pratt City, was introduced to me by our mutual preacher/friend, Reverend Anthony A. W. Motley, pastor of Lindsay Street Baptist Church in Atlanta. Pastor Johnson and I met at Starbucks for coffee several months ago and talked for a couple of hours about the challenges in his church. His challenges are no different from the average church today – mostly generational…

Seminars and Lectures
On Saturday, March 18th, I expect to speak to the good people at Mount Moriah Baptist Church in Pratt City, Birmingham, AL., where the Reverend Dr. Matthew V. Johnson, Jr. is the senior pastor. I was in  Birmingham about three years ago, and I am excited to be coming once again. Recommended by a dear preacher friend of mine, Reverend Anthony A. W. Motley, pastor of Lindsay Street Baptist Church in Atlanta, I met Reverend Johnson about six months ago. We had coffee and talked about his challenges and how I might be able to help him "get the word out" about his ministry and the many great programs going on at Mount Moriah Baptist Church in the Pratt City Community. Like many churches these days, his challenges are universal…

United Fellowship of Churches Convocation Presentation

United Fellowship of Churches Convocation Presentation

Seminars and Lectures
It’s time for me to hit the road again.  This time I will be speaking at the United Fellowship of Churches  2nd Convocation on Saturday, August 20, 2016, at the Assembly of Truth, located at 350 Hills Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30313, from 11:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. I am going to do the very best that I can to shrink my one hour & thirty minute (1:30) seminar into a 45-minute presentation. What I have noticed throughout these few years that I have been on this speaking circuit is that the pastors who attend and become interested in “marketing their ministries” are not the individuals who actually do the work of “marketing.”  Yes, it is vital that these pastors understand why marketing is essential in their growth.  However, they seldom…

AIB (Atlanta Interfaith Broadcasters) and ME

Seminars and Lectures, Uncategorized
I'm so excited about my relationship with AIB TV! It started with a conversation between me and Collie Burnett, the president of AIB, in the parking lot of Publix grocery store. It was a blessing that grew into action. I recently did a seminar/lecture at AIB TV in their studio with about twenty-five pastors and others ministry leaders. I talked about methods of getting the word out about how to grow church membership and participation. We talked about my book, Getting the Word Out: How to Market Your Ministry. We also talked about the value of knowing who you are communicating with, why you are communicating with them -- before you decided on the tools and techniques for communications. We talked about everything between the newsletter and the flyer, to…

How to Market Your Ministry Seminar at the United Methodist Generosity Summit

Seminars and Lectures, Uncategorized
Just delivered two back-to-back seminars at the Peachtree Road United Methodist Church in Atlanta to a United Methodist audience within the North Georgia District. The "Generosity Summit" drew approximately 70 people from diverse backgrounds for a full day of discourse. The interesting thing, and from a personal point of view, was that two of my old friends, Jay F.Springs. and Joe Hudson. were in the audience representing their churches. We talked about old times but zeroed in on how strategic planning and marketing research is necessary to set the stage for implementing effective marketing strategies and tactics. Jay is in radio sales at a gospel station and Joe does strategic planning for some churches and board of directors. I fully enjoyed the day. Each time I give a seminar on…

Teleseminar on How to Market Your Ministry

Seminars and Lectures, Uncategorized
I just participated in a teleseminar with Pam Perry, known for her "Ministry Marketing Solutions." it was great!! Even if I have to say so myself. Pam and I met through Dr. Teresa Hairston, founder/publisher of Gopel Today Magazine. We "clicked," as George Fraser would say. (George was also one of the persons who told me that I should get to know Pam.) It was clear that Pam and I can get excited about marketing tools and tactics for churches and the ministry programs found within the church -- we can talk all night on the subject. We spoke with 200 participants in the teleseminar for one hour and took another 30 minutes to asnwer questions. We are a good fit -- Pam is new school, but is well versed…
