This event is for your church and community.
It is for all people to reach them with the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Be sure to organize a group to help you coordinate the publicity. It takes a team to implement these publicity efforts. Well attended concerts are the result extensive publicity. And publicity doesn't just happen!

One of the neatest publicity ideas we have ever seen was in central Illinois when the host church printing up small concert invitations and then youth and adult volunteers put those invitations on the windshilds of cars parked in other church parking lots during their services.  Their theory was:  people that go to church go to church...even other churches when they are invited.
