Developing a Tagline for Your Church, Step 5: Top 5

Now its time to identify your top five ideas.

I recommend a two step process. Make sure you have had at least two weeks to reflect on your list of 100 or more ideas. The team should have a copy of all of these.  This is important as the creative blitz may produce excitement around ideas that won’t last. A great tagline will get even better in the first few weeks after some reflection.

Step A: After one week, have everyone list their top three ideas. Use this to create a ranked list with the highest rank at the top, but with all of the ideas still on the list.

Step B: Take one more week and encourage active reflection on the list. Now you have had at least two weeks from the brainstorm. Take a final vote and ask people to select their top choice.

Use this process to create the top five list.

The model we used is not working. People around are shunning our services. I do not feel like quitting, but some of my team members are discouraged now.

comment_post_ID); ?> I have found out more. I guess it's all about backing? ReNew doesn't have that. We are a mission church, in a small downtown area. We are a wonderful church though. I guess we also needed everyone to attend and possibly be of service all the time. If I could have it all over to again, I'd participate more, open my mouth more,....IDK, I still am holding onto God's intervention somehow. We have until Sept. 30th.
