EVENT PLANNING 101

"The more people you involve in planning an event, the more people will feel a vested interest in seeing it become a success.  This is a very basic truth that many leaders just don't get.  They try too often to plan and pull off an event all by themselves."

"It's a proven fact that adding food to an event will up your attendance by at least 30%. So think about a pie or ice cream fellowship, or a full blown covered dish dinner!  This will also give you more people to involve."

"Give yourself plenty of time to promote an event.  Get excited!!  If you don't show any excitement about it, your people won't either."

"Invite other churches.  Don't assume they wouldn't have any interest in joining you.  We've seen as many as 10 churches join together for one concert.  Especially invite the smaller churches in your area, who can't necessarily afford to have a lot of events of their own."

"Use all of the free tools at your disposal.  Print posters to put up all over your church, local businesses, etc..  Send a notice to all of the free ad services like Christian Radio, or your state paper, community happenings announcements, etc.."

"Announce early on that we're coming on a love offering basis.  Many churches are worried about being able to take care of a group then don't help themselves in many of the ways that they can.  Make sure people know the group is coming on a love offering, are a full-time group, and this is their only source of income.  If other churches are joining in, ask them to let their people know as well.  A good way to promote the love offering is mentioning that most pay $8-$25 for a concert these days.  If you're one of those that hates it when groups asks for that, then be sure to give well to a group like this that asks for no minimum fee and no high ticket price."

Sons of The Father are committed to traveling on a an expenses plus love offering basis. It allows us to minister in some areas that can't always afford groups who travel on a fee basis. This is sometimes difficult with three families to support but God has always provided.

We ask that our situation be explained during the love offering so that the people will have an opportunity to see the need and give. We say that only because many times someone will just stand and say "now we'll be taking a love offering for our group, in case you have anything you'd like to give. Let us pray". This doesn't mean that we're asking for a long drawn-out speech of begging. This is our sole source of income and we ask only that the people be made aware of that.  We have to turn down churches every year because of time and distance constraints.  We ask simply that an effort be made to let people know our situation so they have an opportunity to give. Many people do not even realize that we're full-time and that this our sole source of income.  We've had people leaving ask how much the church paid us to come so they could mention it to their Pastor or staff.

 

WHAT TO DO AFTER BOOKING

FINANCES:


We are a full-time ministry ( i.e. this is our sole source of income). For accounting purposes, we would appreciate the check being made payable to LSEA (this stands for Les Snyder Evangelistic Association, Federal ID number 37-1013282) for the love offering and one for expenses. Cash is acceptable also. We request that you please not promote or take another SPECIAL OFFERING in the service that we minister in. (On one occasion, an offering was taken for a special project, after which the pastor said, now if you have anything left, you can give it to these fellows).

MINISTRY TAPES AND MATERIAL:


We request a place in the normal traffic pattern in and out of the auditorium to display tapes and CD's. We have only Christian music tapes and CD's by Sons of The Father and a Southern Gospel Magazine. We do not push the sale of anything. In fact, if the pastor will mention their availability, we will not do so. If this is not acceptable, PLEASE advise BEFORE the event and not when we arrive or as we're attempting to set it up. It is very helpful if the table is setup before our arrival.

SOUND:


We use our own equipment. Yours may be better, but ours is a familiar tool, and we do our best when working with that which we know.

AUDIO/VIDEO TAPING:

We ask that our portion of the service not be taped or video-taped. The legal nature of such is beyond my understanding. Please do not put us in the position of possibly doing what is illegal and unethical. It would really help if sound people were notified of this prior to our concert date.

PRAYER:
 

Please pray that the Lord will use the service to Glorify His Name.  That people will be open to hearing the gospel and respond.

ADVERTISING:
 

If you have a local southern gospel radio station or show, we've found that it
greatly improves attendance to the concert/event if you have them play our music
or perhaps buy some advertising spots with them. We have 3 nationally released radio singles that can be found on Celebration Music Group's Compilations CD's. If a CD is needed please let us know and we'll get one to the station.
