GROW: Outreach Teams That Win
 
GROW was designed to be a fun outreach ministry that your church looks forward to! "GROW" is an acronym for "God Rewards Our Work." GROW works to cultivate commitment among those who are willing to be involved in outreach once a month. As involvement increases, commitment grows.
 
With different levels of participation, GROW involves more of your church members in outreach. Participants can be involved in outreach once a month through visitation, letter writing, or phone calling. As GROW progresses the number of participants will increase. Outreach grows from one, to two, three, and finally four weeks a month.
 
The key to administrating GROW are captains assigned to each of the three ministry areas: visitation, letter writing and phone calling. These captains are responsible for enlisting church members to visit, write letters, or make phone calls.  
 
GROW also produces many fresh prospects. Those writing letters and making phone calls can identify prospects who would really welcome a visit. Visitation teams will become more motivated when they make visits that have been set up by phone callers.
 
Those who signed up for GROW found themselves increasing their commitment and becoming increasingly involved in outreach. GROW works especially well with the witness training program, Share Jesus without Fear.
