This is what the most successful communities do differently
And how you can do it too.
Communities are the greatest vehicle for impact there is. When you put the right people together incredible things can happen. However, many communities never get to that point. They never reach their full potential. And It’s certainly not for lack of trying. Passionate members bust their backs to get people in the door, to spread the message and to further the mission, but despite their best efforts, they fall short.
While it’s easier said than done, we think it comes down to this:
Too much focus on putting lots of people together and not enough focus on bringing people closer.
It’s a small distinction that makes a massive difference.
In today’s world, quantity seems to be winning in the age old match-up between quality and quantity. As a society, we’re obsessed with quantifying everything—237 likes, 100,000 followers, 500 members, the list goes on. We tend to get tunnel vision and lose sight of the immeasurable, intangible things that can lead to meaningful numbers and real growth.
To create a thriving community, you have to strike a balance of the two. And let’s be honest, we’re tech people so we definitely geek out over good data, but we’re also people-people so we want to go beyond the figures and get to the person.
Knowing where to put your focus and how to reach your people is the secret sauce to success. We’ve seen our recipe do wonders for the church community:
- Journey Church sparked instant interaction with live polls, generating meaningful conversations that extended beyond the sermon.
- Abundant Life Church increased their giving by 30%.
- Mission Church Ventura gave students with special needs “A Prom Night to Remember” with crowdfunding.
