Back to Church Sunday is a day focused on uniting the Church to equip and empower members to be inviters. Eight out of ten people say they are open to visiting church if invited. That's powerful! Imagine how your community can be transformed with this event serving as a catalyst to create an invitational culture in your church. (Watch the introductory video)

This Year's Theme Is Based On 2 Corinthians 6:2

"...Now is the time of God's favor, now is the day of salvation." 2 Corinthians 6:2
In a time when terrorism plagues our freedom and the current culture threatens our religious liberties, the need for the Church and God's favor is greater than ever. The church is the hope of the world! Now's the time for your church to get involved!
