Church Stewardship Ministry Growth CampaignsLast Updated: July 4th, 2020

Church Stewardship Ministry Growth Campaigns provide traffic to your Church Stewardship Ministry from people seeking help with budgeting, retirement, and debt.

Did you know that every day people outside the church and around your campus search for a ministry you offer? Doesn’t it make sense to connect with these people and let them know you have a solution to their problem?

The information in the Blog was shared with the audience at the 2017 CSN Annual Forum that occurred in Dallas, Texas.

Positioning your church ministries on Google to fuel church growth is a very different strategy. But it is one that is guaranteed to increase your church’s online exposure in your community. The best part of this growth strategy is that you don’t have to start anything new- you already have men’s, women’s, and children’s ministries up and running.

Effectively positioning your church ministries on Google so that searchers are quickly directed to your page is a process. This is achieved using a combination of keyword-rich content, and paid advertising campaigns.

Churches must maximize church website SEO, church Facebook advertising, and church Google advertising. There are an abundance of inexpensive or even free tools that churches can exercise for this task. While church growth on Google or church growth and Facebook may seem to not compliment one another, they are, in fact, tandem pursuits. Finally, collaborating with a church marketing consultant is an increasingly valuable investment. Church ministry is about reaching people where they are, and a church marketing consultant will help maximize the ministry potential of church web traffic.
