It's time to take the second step to focus on perception and needs. This step will help your Marketing Team identify:

  • Perception: Understand the church's view of itself and the community's view Take a church survey to help gather this information.
  • Needs: Open your eyes to your congregation and community's needs. Research the community profile, perhaps take a community survey. Then determine if your church already has resources/abilities to meet those needs or if new ministries need to be developed.
