We are a group of 4 students and we want to plant a SDA church in a small town where there is no SDA church. We have a small budget ($1000) to print 5000 colorful flyers that we plan to hand out door-to-door the week before the meetings.

Please give your IDEAS on WHAT we should put in the flyer to attrack the maximum audience or how to spend the $1000 better on advertising. Any provocative topics? Seems like we can expect 2 people per 1000 flyers to respond. Is that correct? Thanks for your help. Jason Siebolt

Wow ! First of all may your tribe increase. It is exciting to see young people with a vision for God. Be warned that you will draw the attacks of the enemy of souls who will not want to see this move foreward so be prepared in your hearts for opposition. I see that you have studied the latest techniques and probabilities however keep in mind that those studies do not take the "Jesus factor" into account.
Any "lasting" success will not be in what you do... but in who you are. I highly encourage you and your friends to spend at least one thoughtful hour a day in study and prayer. Hold each other accountable and pray together like never before. Your success is found only in "Him" and His graciousness. The stories we find in the scriptures are recorded for our understnding and admonition. Many followers of Christ have been discouraged like the disciples of old who fished all night yet caught nothing. It was when they had an "encounter" with the living Christ that their nets were full and their hearts gladened. He will "give" you the success that He wants to bestow upon you as you seek Him first in all things and put your trust completely in Him. He will never fail you... keep looking unto Him.
In Ps 32:8 God says... I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go...[ and just in case we don't get it ...] I will guide you with my eye upon you.
What a beautiful promise ! It is leaning upon Him that you will find success
God BLESS YOU !

I'm certain a door to door is a bad idea. Better would be to obtain a group mail rate or possibly scrap the flier all together and just put the advert in the local free news paper.

If you choose the news paper maybe have the seminar running all the time not just once since some people pick up on it at different times. This is seperate from church services so after they get through the seminar and choose baptism they would go to regular church service.

Fliers should be very basic.. such as "prophecy seminar" and "Bible study" to get the most people.

I received an Adventist flier in the mail once soon after moving here. We went and learned a great deal. Ten years since and haven't had another.

You could do a decent flier on the pc.

Hi

We're panting a church in central in Port Elizabeth, the area is Parliament street, needles to say this is the most active area for nightclubs, drug peddling, crime and so forth!

Yet, the church will go ahead...we need your prayers for the success of this venture.

Lectures on bible prophecy, the identity of Jesus etc are to start 11 Sep 2011.

You are a very special group, may God bless you in this endevour and keep praying at every step and we will keep you in ours. The most exciting thing is to see what you can do for the people, something that will help them as well as uplift them spiritually. We like to set up a clinic and advertise in the local community and the response is always unbeliveable. I know you may have the personal or equipment but a idea that helps others like that works great
