Invite Someone to Church

Here at Traders Point Christian Church, we go all out to be real, humble and welcoming. We are far from perfect, but we’ve experienced deep life change because of Jesus, and we want others to experience that, too.

We want to do everything we can to remove unnecessary barriers that can keep people from knowing, trusting, and following Jesus. There is power in connection. We all flourish when we are rightly connected with God and with each other.

Ways to Extend an Invitation

If you need a good friend, be a good friend, and watch what God does. Sometimes all it takes is a simple invitation to build a meaningful relationship and jumpstart someone’s spiritual journey.

  • Love your neighbors and get to know those around you. 
  • Casually ask a family member, friend, neighbor, or colleague to join you at one of our physical campuses.
  • Share a Traders Point social media post or invite.
  • Text a friend and invite them to the next weekend gathering.
  • Share the Traders Point livestream on social media. 

Having the Conversation

At some point, you’ll need to help people see what Jesus is offering. Maybe you’re not sure what to say. Maybe you’re afraid they’ll ask you a question that you won’t have an answer to.

But you know what? Maybe it’s time to just start the conversation. You don’t have to be perfect. You just have to be real.

Get them talking. Ask more questions and really listen. Learn their story. It’s amazing what God will do and where He will lead the conversation.

When the time is right, ask them to church with a loving spirit. Keep it clear, keep it concise, keep it humble, and make sure that you point them toward Jesus.

Here are some ideas for introducing someone to Christ's love into your conversation:

  • "Hey, do you have a church? Why don't you join me at the Traders Point ________ campus?" 
  • "Would you like to attend church with me? I attend the Traders Point ________ campus. We meet at [campus gathering times]. You pick the time and we can go together!"
  • “My church has some great music and thoughtful messages. If you want to check it out in person, let me know. Or you can watch our livestream this weekend.”
  • “You know what? I’d love to tell you sometime what God has done in my life whenever you feel comfortable with that. I’d love to have that opportunity.”

What If They Say No?

All of us get turned down sometimes, and that’s okay! Just because someone rejects church doesn’t mean they reject you. Just keep inviting, and don’t get discouraged.
