Enroll To Grow: Simple Formula To Work

Nathan Bright


1. Total church enrollment program is 100% involvement.

2. Dream a dream about your church. First survey your church…how many do you have enrolled now?

Next, how many can we care for properly, both spiritually and room wise?

Set a goal for the number you want to increase.

3. Two basic things are accomplished in any church through Enroll to Grow:

a. Increase in your Sunday School attendance and church attendance.

b. Working together . . . total involvement unifies a church. Everyone is geared for the salvation of souls.

4. A simple formula that works.

E = P + A – Enrollment = Present + Absent

P = E – A – Those present on a given Sunday. On the average equals your enrollment minus your absentees.

p = 1/2 of E – Present = half of your enrollment

The way to increase your attendance is to increase your enrollment.

5. Number Present = 1/2 of your enrollment.

This has been proven over and over again. Try it in your Sunday School. See if this principle is not true.

6. Use one week with total church involved is a most rewarding plan. Result will be growth. Revival will follow.

7. Personnel Needed

a. Co-Ordinator
b. Secretaries
c. Planning Committee (Co-Ordinator, Pastor, Director of Education)
d. Team Captains
e. Enrolling Teams
f. Follow-Up Teams
g. Workers for Nursery, Children’s Church

10. Schedule – Tuesday through Friday, 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.

Monday night have all teams meet at the church.
Inspire them, equip them, orientate them.
Get them acquainted with the nitty-gritty of the program.


a. Meet at church at 7:00 p.m. Prayer and packets

b. Go and do the job. Average each team will enroll ten families per night.

c. Return to church at 9:00 p.m.

11. Fantastic Results. Watch enthusiasm grow as the results of each team is posted each evening. What you can expect:

50 teams x 10 per night = 500

4 days x 500 = 2,000 contacted

Of the 2,000 contacted, at least 500 enrolled.

First two weeks over 250 attend Sunday School.

In the first month nearly all of the 250 will receive the Holy Ghost.

Where else could you get so much for so little effort?
