With six weeks left before the nationwide event, already more than 6,000 churches have extended a half-million invitations to National Back to Church Sunday (NBTCS), set for Sept. 18. Churches are utilizing tools and the assistance of more than a hundred communitywide coordinators to draw their friends and neighbors to attend.
“It is the privilege of every Christian to invite someone to church,” said Philip Nation, LifeWay Research’s director of ministry development. “By taking part in National Back To Church Sunday, believers can introduce the hope of the gospel to their communities by welcoming people into their local congregations.”
Some 10,000 churches are expected to take part this year in NBTCS. Coordinators will facilitate cooperation among churches and denominations for greater impact on communities. A citywide coordinator guide and a NBTCS specialist are available to give direction and support to these leaders at backtochurch.com/participate/city_groups.
