What an unbelievably successful IGNITE!! During the three weekends of IGNITE we saw an increase in our attendance from 4196 to 5,073. That is a jump of 875 weekend attenders to CCC! It is amazing to see a jump of almost 21% in such a short period of time.
Twice a year all of CCC comes together for what we call IGNITE. IGNITE is an all church initiative for three weeks that includes the following:
- Prayer – Everyone prays for ten people they would like to invite to CCC.
- Personal Invites – Everyone makes invites for others to join them at a weekend service.
- Marketing – We do additional advertising and create collateral for people to use as invitations.
- “Wow” – Creative Arts does their best with their very best people and then some to create a “wow”. First Impressions does whatever it takes to make sure that newcomers leave with a “wow, I can’t believe that was church”.
Congrats to Paul Warner who ran point on this all-church initiative and to each of our campus pastors who did a great job of mobilizing people. And congrats to the people of CCC. Soooo many people invited friends, family and co-workers to join them at CCC! Never forget – that 875 is not just a number, that is the number of new people every week that you work with, live near and have prayed for over the last several weeks and months that took one more step on their spiritual journey. I am so proud to be a part of this community and a part of our mission to help people find their way back to God!
