A Forgotten “to do” over the summer

Bob FranquizGeneral

One of the most important things we do as church leaders over the summer is prepare for the Fall.

I am amazed when I talk to church leaders who are starting to prepare for the Fall in September because the summer got crazy with vacations and staff members being out of town.

Many churches don’t experience the power of a big Fall because they didn’t take the time to plan over the summer.

Here’s what I’d encourage you to do…

1. Set some appointments before the summer to talk about the game plan for the Fall.

2. Meet during the summer and plan out your Fall preaching calendar, outreach events and follow up.

3. Hit the ground running after the summer ends with a big Fall campaign that takes you church to a new level.


I talk about how to do all of this in my resource, “How to Make Every Sunday Like Easter”. You can pick it up by clicking here. It outlines 14 ways to make every Sunday as powerful as Easter Sunday.
