These statistics are based on findings from Michael Harvey as he travels the world speaking with churches about how they can become both welcoming and invitational. If these are true, then we have a church paralysed by fear when it comes to inviting someone to church or a church event. For us to break through these fears, we must first realise that success in invitation is not about whether we get a “Yes” or a “No”, but the fact that we took a step out in faith. God does not view success by the number of yeses.
Who is the one person you could invite along to church? Spend time with God asking for a name and then an opportunity!
