    Do you have a question?
  • Posted by mgoodman on Accepted
    Who is the primary target audience? What do you want them to know/do? What's in it for them (besides breakfast)?
  • Posted by chiron34 on Accepted
    Has the religion any particular or important relationship with your community or city?

    Why is it important that the new pastor have a general community meet & greet rather than just interacting with the immediate congregation? Is there a tagline hidden in the reason?

    How about simply: B2G Breakfast (Business-To-God) or B2P Breakfast (Business-to-Pastor)?

    Thank you for your helpful responses. Recently we have had a change of Senior Pastors. Our new pastor is very different from the previous pastor of 5 years. She matches our church's concern for outreach. The prior pastor was unable to pursue this as fully.

    Our church is very community oriented. Although we certainly seek to serve the pastoral care needs of our members we seek to reach out to those with needs for shelter, food and other basic human needs.

    Our goal is for the pastor to meet leaders across the spectrum in order to become aware of their work and community needs. This will be held at a Breakfast provided by a chef known by many for his delicious food. In this informal setting the pastor can easily meet the business leaders.

    I've been fortunate to participate in many social interactions between the community and a local pastors for decades. I believe you practically already have your new tagline or headline for the event built right into the scope of your just seems you need a little soft guiding on how to pull it I'm going to share one of my many headlines below to help you along.

    "Miami Pastor Welcomes You and Local LeadersTo Meet, Greet & Eat With Surprise Chef"

    Of course instead of using "Miami" use your local community name because that will be way more powerful to those attending a local community event. Why use this headline? Because this invitational headline will both attract and speak directly to the individual receiving the flyer or press release. It becomes more powerful because it references that there will be other Local Leaders in attendance. By putting a Surprise Chef you also get to create a bit of curiosity around who it will be...(and at the same time alerts all outsiders to the fact that the food part won't be handled by amateurs but a professional that they might even know...but they won't know unless they show-up and attend). No one should want to miss this event since you haven't revealed the Local Leaders or the chef who will be preparing the food...(furthermore you haven't even shared what your Surprise Chef will be preparing for Breakfast...but your audience knows it's got to be good if it's being prepared by a chef). And since people love to eat and also LOVE to be in the presence of Local Leaders you've got a win...Win...WIN.

    Thank you so much, I love your title, by the way!
    You gave me a very thoughtful answer and I appreciate that. In this case, though, the chef has only been known in the Senior Community here in the Orlando area. He is an amateur chef and cooked breakfasts for people in our business network when I owned a local business. He is loved for his bacon and waffles and also won the People's Choice Award at a dessert competition for his lemon meringue pie. I am inviting leaders from my business network. I owned a small business for 10 years which I closed 2 years ago but keep up with leaders informally on Social Media. My husband is this chef but I think I need to go another way. I think I can use your great ideas in creating the title and invitation.

    Heeey Rev Ann Hutchens,

    Bless your're Sooo Welcome. I'm honored that you appreciated the title and my input. Thanks also for letting us in on the chef is your husband and he's an amateur. Having won some awards still makes his food something Special. But being that he is your husband will require a different approach...because the last thing you need is to have people thinking you're trying to promote him (so I totally agree with you on going another way with that part of it). The good thing is you now have enough input to run with the title and the invitations. Wishing you and your pastor all the best as you all go forth to Inspire your community to form a partnership. I'm Sooo Glad I could be of service...KEEP SMILING!!! and Changing Lives.

    Your Servant,

    Thank you, Delemiah. I'm slow to response because we are in Central Fl and going through all the related activities and feelings concerning hurricane preparation. We think it's going out to sea rather than a direct direct. Now to pray for those on the coast.
