The Reality We’re Realizing
Bara is consistently and prayerfully seeking the Lord to teach us and grow us. Our mission has remained unchanged from the beginning: To Know Christ and Make Him Known. This is accomplished through our core commitments and in two primary environments: Groups and Gatherings. Every Sunday, multiple first time guests walk through our doors and into our lives. Some return. Many do not. We feel called to intentionally focus on the first time guest experience. Statistics indicate that the first six minutes of a first time guests experience are the greatest predictors of whether they will return or not. In other words, before a song is sung or a sermon is preached is preached, most people have already made up their mind about our church.
The Remedy We’re Taking
Through prayer, planning, and the power of God, we are going to seize the first six minutes after a guest steps on our campus to make it a welcoming and loving experience. We’ve created a short video to give you a better idea of how this could look. Please take a minute to watch the video now and then continue reading.
