Last week we gave you the opportunity to restructure your church marketing efforts with an unlimited budget. The first place you said you would hire is …
A teaching pastor. It looks like the time-honored tradition of the most important guy being the one with the microphone lives on today, albeit only by a small margin. 29% of you would start here.
The big surprise is that 21% of you would hire a web or graphics guys. You think graphics are the new face of the church. These numbers are way up from the last poll 50 years ago. After all, good teaching is a good thing.
I think the popularity of the first two show the popularity of an attractional ministry philosophy. The third most popular response highlights the popularity of a more missional approach. 20% of you would turn first to an outreach pastor.
12% of you are more business-minded. You would first turn to an executive pastor to make sure everything is going smoothly. Some folks would call you boring, but we’ll call you precise and wise. Executive pastors are important, and it’s not the sexy choice. Cheers to you.
A little smaller slice of readers, 7%, would head for either a new band or some super-sweet production. I’d imagine here we’d be thinking long hair, smashing guitars, strobe lights and beyond. Yes?
Getting barely any love from our respondents are architects. Only 3% of folks would hire one of them first. Perhaps next week, we could poll that 3% to find out how many of them are actually architects.
This week, we’re asking about your support. Head east and weigh in. How supportive is your church of the idea of church marketing?
