THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY COACH LAUNCHES NEW ONLINE RESOURCE DEDICATED TO
BUILDING EFFECTIVE NEWCOMERS MINISTRIES

AUTHOR, SPEAKER, AND COACH RELEASES NEW THREE BOOK SERIES TO HELP CHURCHES
MASTER FIRST IMPRESSIONS, CREATE A DYNAMIC NEWCOMERS CLASS, AND IDENTIFY LEADERS

Karol Peterson, the Christian Community Coach, announced the launch of ChristianCommunityCoach.com an online resource for Christian churches wishing to build an effective newcomers ministry.

“A newcomers ministry can’t be an afterthought.  It can and should be carefully planned, managed, and maintained,” said Peterson. “Growing a church, increasing membership and tithing, and really connecting members can be difficult if you don’t have a plan.  ChristianCommunityCoach.com and my three book series on building effective newcomers ministries makes it easy for churches to master this important aspect of church life by giving them tools, strategies, and a time tested roadmap for success.”

To mark the launch of ChristianCommunityCoach.com, Peterson is releasing a new three book series to guide churches and ministry leaders through the process of building an effective newcomers ministry:

Mastering First Impressions: The Important and Often Overlooked First Step in Building an Effective Newcomers Ministry

Creating a Dynamic Newcomers Class and Handbook:  The Proven Method for Getting Newcomers Connected to and Energized About Your Church

Identifying Leaders: Attracting, Training and Empowering Effective Volunteer Leaders for Your Newcomers Ministry

“We know that newcomers who become church members after attending the class I have created – and carefully outlined in my books – give more of their time, talents, and resources to growing their church and the Kingdom of God,” said Peterson. “God has called me to this work, to build newcomers ministries, and to passionately help churches strengthen their first impressions and volunteer leadership.  I am thrilled to share what I’ve learned through my new books, website and social media presence.”

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
