  • 87 % of people who come to a church and stay, do so because someone invites them.
  • People are only an invitation away.
  • Growing churches develop a “culture of invitation” in which everyone is regularly inviting others.
  • You do not have to meet “new people” but must think of all the people you know in more missional ways.
  • Only 17% of the population in the United States attends worship anywhere.
  • The vast majority of people under the age of 25 have never stepped inside a church.
  • Growing churches don’t wait for people to come to them; they go meet people where they are in the community.
