Fighter Brand Churches
I’m always amazed at how sometimes I can find something that’s fairly common knowledge in business circles and realize that the church is doing the same thing — unwittingly, and therefore unable to learn from the lessons business is teaching. I had never heard of a “Fighter Brand” until today while I was reading the Harvard Business Review. A “fighter...
Cut the pretense
Hugh McLeod is signing prints, but not in an art gallery. Why? It was too pretentious. Pretense invades all sorts of things that could otherwise be fun. Punk shows shouldn’t require you to sport a mohawk or gauged ears. Churches found out a while ago that requiring a 3 piece suit maybe wasn’t what church was all about. I might even like opera if it weren’t for the people. ...
Teaching your church to Tweet
Social media is huge, nobody needs to tell you that. Between Twitter, Facebook, and your RSS reader, you get tons of information every day that you would not necessarily have before. Yet, interestingly enough, most of the social media about churches that I see comes from church professionals (although I do know a few empowered lay people that blog from their perspective, which I love). Church...

Displaying your results
This picture is from a pizza company that is trying to convince you that they are never late. They’re taking a risk, displaying how long its taking them to deliver your pizza. But after a couple of times, people will learn that your pizza delivery guy is quick and reliable. What are the “results” that your church claims? Forgiven sins? Lives turned around? Biblical...

I got a calendar with my name on it in the mail the other day. It said, “Compliments of Jay Winters, University Lutheran.” It was a sample meant to get me to buy more - of course I didn’t because I don’t think my name is the right name to have on the calendar (however if it said “Compliments of Jesus…”). Salesmen used to give away calendars all of the...
