In this episode we speak with Tom Crites, Research Specialist at the Georgia Baptist Convention. He's the GBC's best kept secret.  Tom can send out to any Georgia Baptist Church extensive data relating to the demographic and psychographic makeup of their community in a 1 mile radius, 5 mile radius and beyond.

Tom's office can also supply current name and address mailing lists at no charge. 
Not only that, but your church "trends" profile is a must-see for anyone in leadership. 
These are expensive resources made available to Georgia Baptist due to their giving through the Cooperative Program.

[Part 3 of 3] What do guest see at your church that you don't?  When you work, lead, worship and live in your own church's ministry, it's nearly impossible to be objective.

That's why Faith Perceptions exists. In this episode, Joel Southerland, Scott Smith and Randy Mullinax interview Melanie Smollen of Faith Perceptions.

Faith Perceptions began in 2008 taking the "mystery shopping program" for businesses to the church environment using unchurched mystery guests (sometimes called mystery worshippers), multiple visits and a consistent scorecard.  Faith Perceptions is now the fastest growing firm of its type in the United States with over 2,000 worship services evaluated across four denominations in eight states and approximately 6,000 mystery guests that are active in their database.
