I declared last November 14th as National Take Your Minister to Lunch Day.  Next week, we’ll celebrate the second anniversary.

Basically, I described why it’s important reconnect with your local minister, especially that one minister who’s stopped sending clients your way.

A minister has a lot of control over his “flock,” including making recommendations about which funeral home to use.  Often, a family who has experienced a death will call their minister before choosing a funeral home.

Don’t overlook this important referral mechanism. 

Next Wednesday (or any other free day next week) take a minister to lunch and just chat about his/her church.  You’ll be surprised the things you’ll learn.
