Tips for Inviting Others

1. Be Yourself

Don’t overthink it! Use words that feel natural to how you usually talk.

2. Think of Other Circles of People

Invite people from communities you’re involved in outside of church, like:
  • Teams at work
  • Neighbors
  • Interest-based Facebook groups
  • Group text threads
  • Family chat threads

3. Consider Both In-Person or Online

Some ways you can invite people (including virtually) include:
  • During a hangout or conversation
  • Text or call
  • Email
  • Social media DM or message
  • Share Echo’s social media posts (@echochurchlive on Facebook, Instagram, etc.)
  • Post on social media news feeds, groups, or stories

4. Identify a Need

Think about a specific issue the person may be looking for answers about or struggling with, and speak to that.

A Note on Responses

If they accept, that’s great! If you’re available, attend or watch the Sunday message at the same time as the person you invited. Then check in with them afterwards on their thoughts. If they decline, don’t feel bad! Continue to establish a relationship with the person, and keep praying for them.
