Church Attendance on Easter Easter is the “Super Bowl” of Sunday services, and individuals in your community are more likely to attend church on Easter than on any other week of the year.

Easter offers your church the opportunity to invite new visitors, re-engage those who have stopped attending, and energize your current congregation. Typically, there are four types of attendees at Easter services: the regulars, those who occasionally attend, those who attend on holidays, and those who are invited by family and friends.
How You Can Plan for Church Growth This Easter We’ll provide a complete advertising solution to help you reach the unchurched. We’ll optimize your campaign investment across several different platforms, including Google Search, Google Display Network, Facebook Audience Network, and Youtube, based on the unique needs and goals of your church.

We can even set you up for future retargeting ads so that visitors who reach your church website from your Easter campaign can be reminded about your church at a later time. These methods have produced incredible results in bringing new families into church throughout the holiday season. Take it from our clients:
For the first time ever, we used Missional Marketing for our Easter outreach. We’re a small church of about 200 people, and when they ran the campaign, 17 new families showed up! That was the most we’ve ever had! We’ll be doing this again for sure. Pastor Mark from Mesa, AZ
During the Easter season, we actually present an opportunity to accept Jesus for the very first time. Last Easter, we had hundreds of people come forward, and the only outreach we did was through Missional Marketing. It really works! Kirt, a Communications Director from Peoria, IL
Effective Online Easter Ads The vast majority of churches are not focused on a marketing strategy for newcomers when they are planning their Easter Sunday services. Some churches realize their need to actively evangelize during this season, but don’t know where to start when it comes to reaching unchurched populations in their community. Missional Marketing is here to help.

We work with churches of all sizes to create a customized outreach plan for the Easter season.

Before your scheduled call with one of our church growth experts, here’s a list of items we’ll discuss. If you don’t yet have all the details nailed down for your events or service - no problem! We’ll sort out everything out together on the call.

  1. Your service or event details. Are you promoting an Easter concert? A Easter sermon series? A Easter lights show? Easter services? All the above? Try and prepare as much detail as possible so that our team can work with you in creating the most effective and creative approach.
  2. Artwork and video. If you have these ready, great. If not, that’s okay too. Having these assets in advance will help us better understand the campaign look and feel you’re hoping to achieve, but we’re also happy to create any necessary artwork and ad copy on your behalf. We’ll speak into the content with the goal of reaching and engaging unchurched people.
  3. Access to your digital tools. This includes authorizations for Facebook, Google Analytics, your website and more. If this is the first time you’ve worked with us, you’ll learn that we go much further than simply running a campaign. We always want to understand what users do when they reach your website. Our goal is to produce measurable results through the use of effective call-to-action buttons and conversion paths.
  4. Your advertising budget. Having this dollar value upfront helps us to zero in on expected results. We’ve successfully run thousands of Easter ad campaigns, so we’re well versed in making accurate projections based on your timeframe and daily spend. If you aren’t sure of what to budget for your church, we can talk through that together based on what’s worked well for other churches of its size, demographics, and maturity.
  5. Planning for future events. Getting people excited to attend your Easter events is the first goal of our discussion, but utilizing a retargeting code at Easter can help you invite new visitors back in the new year.
