Developing a Family Outreach Strategy for First Baptist Church of Verdigris, Verdigris, Oklahoma
Mark A Boyd
The purpose of this project was to develop an outreach strategy for First Baptist Church of Verdigris, Oklahoma (FBCV), in order to reach families with school age children. The project director led selected members of FBCV to develop a multifaceted family outreach strategy to reach families with school age children in the surrounding community. The project director explored different family models of ministry for evangelistic church growth and revitalization. Next, the project director collected and evaluated the demographic data in a one, three and five-mile radius along with the internal annual church profile date of FBCV. Then the project director interviewed pastors of growing churches that were similar in culture and size to FBCV prior to their breakout in reaching families with children. Finally, utilizing the resources gathered, the project director and the outreach strategy team met for six sessions and developed a multi-faceted family outreach strategy designed to reach families with school age children for FBCV. The project director presented the strategy to the church members of FBCV for acceptance who formally accepted the strategy in a special called business meeting on November 05, 2017.
