Bob FranquizGeneral

index Imagine there was a coffee shop where everyone who was most likely to attend your church hung out. Would you advertise there? Um.Yes. That’s what Facebook is.

That means Facebook is the perfect place for you to invite people to your church. You know that for the last 4 1/2 years we have done everything we can to resource pastors and church leaders.       So ... Read More

Bob FranquizBooks

I spend a lot of time talking to people who want to write books. They give all kinds of excuses as to why they can't write their book now. "I don't have the time right now." "I'm unsure about what to write about." "Where do I begin in writing?" But here's what it all comes down to: permission Most people are waiting for someone to give them permission to write. They're waiting for some publisher, some editor, some governing body to say, "It's time for you to write." Here are the 2 things you need to write:  1. A message ... Read More

You Already have the Content to Write your Book

Bob FranquizBooks

Too many pastors think they are starting from scratch when it comes to writing a book. I have found just the opposite to be true. You have some hidden content sitting right under your nose that can have you well on your way to writing your first book. In fact, I recently recorded a 3 minute video that explains where this "secret" content is hiding in plain sight. Enjoy!   You can grab a copy of my new ebook, Amplify Your Message by clicking here.

I have a confession to make…

Bob FranquizGeneral

index Dear Pastor, In the early days of Calvary Fellowship I had so much responsibility and was working so many hours that I began to lose the JOY of doing ministry. You know who's fault that was?

The 4 most Annoying Words a Pastor Hears…

Bob FranquizGeneral

index Dear Pastor, There are 4 words that Pastors hate to hear. Words that are like nails running down a chalkboard to any preacher. I’m sorry to make you read them, but here they are... I’m.not.getting.fed. It hurts me just to write them. They’re annoying. Frustrating. But sometimes... they’re true. Sometimes people really aren’t growing. I’ve learned that there are times when churches don’t offer people a clear path to grow and christians feel stuck in their faith. The truth is, this is more common than we might realize. One of the biggest reasons that people walk out the back ... Read More

My Big Stupid Leadership Mistake

Bob FranquizGeneral

index Dear Pastor, When I was but a wee lad (26) and totally green when it came to leadership and church planting, I made the dumbest mistake I've ever make in 13 years.  What was it? Here's how the tale goes... We were a young church and my wife and I were doing pretty much everything in those early days. There was this guy who was nice enough and said he wanted to serve, but he never showed up when  he said he would and never followed through in his commitments.   But I knew this guy had so much ...

The Pastor Who Missed Christmas

Bob FranquizGeneral

index Dear Pastor, I was at Target with my family last Friday and Christmas was in full effect. Ornaments. Fake trees. Lights. Even the ugly Christmas sweaters were on sale. Why are retailers starting their Christmas promotion the first week of November? Because they know if you want Christmas to be big, you’ve got to star early. Every year I get a call from a Pastor who waited too long to start his Christmas promotion. They don’t mean to start late. It just didn’t happen. I don’t want you to miss out on one of the biggest opportunities we have ... Read More

I Don’t Know How Else to Tell You this…

Bob FranquizGeneral

index Dear Pastor, I just approved our Christmas Save the Date card. It’s going in the mail later this week. It looks like this… Here’s why I’m writing you about Christmas 2 weeks before Thanksgiving… because time is of the essence. If you want an explosive Christmas where all of the church gathers…  That means… Members Regular Attenders Irregular Attenders   And each of these groups brings friends, family, coworkers and classmates… Then you need to start your Christmas promotion early. You can’t start planning Christmas after everyone gets back from their Thanksgiving break. There just isn’t enough time to ... Read More
