Taking Community Outreach to the Next Level!
In today’s fast moving, social, media rich world, it’s estimated that only 20% of people attend a church on Sunday. That’s why we’re developing a community-wide outreach event designed to encourage Christians in their faith and introduce new people in the community to God’s amazing grace and love!
Our Community-Wide Outreach Church Service is a one of a kind community-wide outreach event that’s like no other and is designed to encourage Christians in their faith and introduce new people to God’s amazing grace & love! By bringing together the community to create the event, we’re creating a true community outreach event where people who do not attend any church can feel comfortable being involved. We’re also creating the world’s first crowdsourced church event. By utilizing digital and Internet technologies, we’ll create powerful engaging content for our events that is produced by talented people from the local community, and from all around the world! Plus, we’ll use lots of multimedia & the creative arts in our events (the language of our day) helping make them relevant to the local community and spiritually engaging so that new people in our community can be introduced to God’s amazing grace & love!
WHAT we do
The Community-Wide Outreach Church Service is a one of a kind community-wide outreach event that is truly like no other! By bringing together the local and global community to create the CCS event, we’re creating a true “community” event that will also be the world’s first crowdsourced church event. By utilizing Internet and digital technology, the CCS will be the first outreach church event that uses the power of crowdsourcing to produce our events allowing for the content for our events to be produced by talented people from the local community, and from around the world!
Introduce New People To God’s Amazing Grace & Love
The Community Church Service is designed to introduce, and re-introduce people in the community to God’s love and the church. This ministry was founded with one core purpose in mind – to introduce as many new people as possible to God’s amazing grace & love found in Jesus!
Extending Our (Out) Reach
Before and during our community outreach events our team will promote the events in the community on social media. After the events we’ll extend our reach by repurposing our live event content and producing it into micro content that will be posted on our social media channels, extending our reach into the community, and the world!
Providing A Clear Next Step
After our events, we provide those attending a clear path to take their next step with God. Our follow-up strategy includes offering those new in the faith an invitation to take their next step by attending a service at a local church. We will also provide information about online resources that can help them get to know God better!
HOW we do it
By design, our monthly CCS community outreach event supports the local church. People who participate in and attend the event will be invited to take the next step in their spiritual journey by attending a local church service.
Our events will be the first church outreach event to use the power of crowdsourcing to produce our one of a kind outreach events. Using digital and Internet technologies, we’ll create powerful engaging events that includes talented people from the local community, and from all around the world!
Multimedia & The Creative Arts
Our events will include lots of creativity and creative elements because multimedia and the creative arts has become so widely used in our culture today. Using the same communication style that people use every day, will help us connect them to God’s amazing grace & love!
Excellence Through Collaboration
High quality outreach events spring from collaboration with as many people as possible who have a wide variety of experience and talents. By utilizing today’s Internet technology, we will be able to collaborate with anyone, anywhere, in the world making our community outreach events truly like no other!
Making It Social (Media)
We will use social media to extend our ministry reach. In today’s highly connected social media world we have been given the unique opportunity to use today’s technology tools to share God’s love with more people in more places than ever before. Our strategy includes using the amazing power of social media to promote the CCS outreach events in the community before, during, and after the events.
Extreme Guest Services
How someone is treated is often what they remember the most! We believe a successful community outreach event should also include amazing guest services. From entry-to-exit the our guest services team will make sure the people that attend have a lasting 1st impression. Serving people “a little beyond the norm” can make all the difference!
A Place to Grow Spiritually
When a group of Christians come together to work on a common project something special happens, we learn more about each other, and how God has worked in our individual lives. Sharing and hearing each other’s God stories as we serve together helps us grow spiritually and brings great encouragement to our lives!
A New Place to Use Your Gifts
Our community is filled with people looking for a place to use and develop their gifts and connect with others who share their interests and gifts. Whether creative gifts such as acting or video production, hospitality, guest services, or a professional smiler (greeter), our live community outreach events are an opportunity to do what you love, and meet others in the community that love the same things you do!
who OUR OUTREACH EVENTS benefit
• The Local Church – Our outreach events are designed to be a front door to the community and a point of connection to the local church. At the end of the our CCS event, those in attendance who do not have a church home will be invited to “take the next step” by attending a weekend service at a local church.
• The Community – Going into all the world (Matthew 28:16-20) in 2019 is much different than in days gone by. Today, to reach our world different approaches are needed because our world has changed. Most in today’s culture do not attend any church and that’s why creating new places where new people can be introduced to God’s amazing grace and love, and the local church, is so important. This strategy not only strengthens and grows the local church, but it also strengthens the community.
• The Body of Christ – When a wide variety of people from the community participate in and attend the same outreach event, people in the community within their circle of influence also attend, including many who do not know Jesus or attend any church. When that happens, new people are introduced to God’s love and to the local church!
FOUNDER – MINISTER – TEAM LEADER
Hello! My name is Barry Whitlow, and I’m the Minister and Founder of the Community Church Service.
Experience – Over the past 20+ years I’ve helped a variety of churches use technology and media to accomplish their mission. Through the years I’ve served churches as a pastor, a large church staff pastor, church media director, video producer, social media manager, and website designer.
Motivation – My motivation for launching the Community Church Service is summed up in this question: “If so many people are not attending any local church in our communities, how do we as the Church connect with them and introduce them to God’s amazing grace and love found in Jesus? How do we as the Church, in today’s changing culture, stay true to our mission to “Go into all the world” and reach these people that God so loves?
My Story – In my early 20’s I felt hopeless and alone, until one day I was introduced to Jesus. Ever since, my goal and passion has been to encourage Christians in their faith and introduce as many people as possible to God’s amazing grace and love found in Jesus.
