“The Time Is Now!”

A Message From The Senior Bishop and National President On
“National Back To Church Sunday”
September 18, 2022

“The Moment We’re In Doesn’t Change
The Mission We’re On”

As Senior Bishop and National President, we agree with Outreach, Inc. “that this fall could be one of the biggest opportunities to welcome people back to church! A Back to Church Sunday event can be the perfect launch event for your fall ministry season – it connects and engages your regular attenders while providing the entire church with a focused goal to invite friends and neighbors to come to church!”

Dr. Ed Stetzer, Executive Director of Wheaton College Billy Graham Center, states it even clearer: “We have all felt the downward pressure on church attendance. Yet, the moment we are in does not change the mission we are on. And, this Back to Church Sunday could be a game changing moment— as people rearrange their lives to a new reality this fall, it’s an opportunity to invite people to consider the place of faith. And, this could be a great time to engage people who’ve disconnected from church in the last two years. Let’s seize the moment and show and share the love of Jesus.”

And so, we encourage every COCHUSA pastor and church to conduct A “Back To Church” event during September or October to mobilize the church to reach the unreached. Go to www.BackToChurch.com for BTCS resources and ideas.
