With the New Mover Program from Outreach, your church can easily send an invitation to these families to join the caring and supportive community at your church.

Unique Program features

  • Complete control: mail only to the carrier routes you want.
  • Multireach: send postcards twice a month to increase response rates.

Word On The Street

Our customers are having great success growing their church using our New Mover Program. But don't take our word for it ...

"Our church has used the New Mover Program to reach out to new customers for four years. We know it's been successful because we ask our guests to identify how they first heard of our church, and we hear about the card they received. Some guests bring their postcards in with them. We really liek ho wwe can customize the printed materials and the mailing list to maximize our exposer and craft a message that fits our congregation. Thank, Outreach, for this great tool!"

Pastor Ron Daughin
Olmsted Community Church

"The WelcomeOne New Mover Outreach Program has been a great success. Each month it generates phone calls and emails...what a great idea!"

Jim Yelvington
Sanctuary Church

"[Your] New Mover Program raises awareness of our church throughout the community and provides low-cost, personlaized invitations to people we otherwise would not reach."

Frequently Asked Questions

Clear Search
How does the Outreach New Mover Outreach Program work? Every month, Outreach will obtain a list of new movers in your 3-digit zip code area. We will then use our state-of-the-art variable data technology to print postcard invitations featuring every new mover's name on the front and back of the postcards. We will then address and mail the postcards for your church.
What makes your program unique? There are several features that make the Outreach New Mover Program unique: First, it is the only new mover program that allows you to select specific areas to mail to instead of a general radius and allows you to do this BEFORE you sign up; it’s the only program that offers variable data personalization feature the recipient's name printed as part of the design free- other companies do not offer this service at all or charge extra for it! Finally, the Outreach New Mover Program is a complete, turnkey program: we do it all for you, including delivery to the post office and there are no contracts or obligations. You can cancel at any time.
Why do so many churches do new mover outreaches? Every year 45 million people move to a new home. Studies show that these new neighbors are often looking for ways to connect to their new community and make new friends. Sometimes New Movers are also going a life transition like being newly married or divorced, becoming an empty nester or having a baby, or moving away from family - during these times people are often more open to spiritual discussions and in need of support. New Movers are a very responsive audience to church invitations and church events.
How much does it cost? If your church has a non-profit postage permit, each card is only 79¢ each including printing, addressing and delivery to the post office. There is a one-time set up fee of $79.95. If you do not have a non-profit permit, your costs will be about 10 cents higher per card.
Can I limit how many postcards are mailed each month? Yes, you can set a limit. To be effective and see results, we recommend you do not send less than 50 postcards a month.
Are there minimum quantities required? No, but we recommend that you do not send less than 50 postcards per month or your results will be hard to monitor.
Where do the lists come from? Are they accurate? Outreach acquires our lists from a specialist in new mover data. They pull information from property titles and deeds, utility company hookups, magazine change of address, and NCOA data. The names are compiled and filtered to ensure the list is as accurate as possible.
When are the church postcard invitations mailed? Regular New Mover invitation mailings are delivered to the post office the last week of each month. The Multi-Reach mailings are sent approximately two weeks later to the same households to increase response rates.
After our monthly postcards are sent, how many new people should I expect? Your response rates will vary depending on how many invitations are being sent and what other marketing your church is doing in the community. Visitors may not respond immediately, it is more common to see a trickle of visitors over several weeks. Studies show that it can take up to 7 "touches" before someone responds to a marketing campaign, so as you continue to promote your church through other marketing techinques you will see higher response.
Can I change my church postcard design? Yes, however there is a $29.95 design modification fee if changed to another existing New Mover Design. A modification fee of $75.00 applies if changing to a design that is not currently a New Mover Design, including submitting completed artwork or a full custom design.
How will I know who has received the postcard invitations? Every month you will receive a report showing the number of cards and the information on each new neighbor who receives the postcards so you can follow up later. We will also include your mailing address when we send the postcards so that you will receive a postcard the same time as your new neighbors.
How will I receive the reports of new movers for follow up? The reports are sent via email with an MS Excel spreadsheet attachment. You will receive the name and address for each person who received a postcard from your church that month.
Can you bill my church for the subscription? At this time, only Credit Card payments are accepted for the New Mover Subscriptions. Your card will be charged each month on the day your postcards are sent to the post office around the 28th of the month.
What if I'm not happy with the service? You may cancel the service at any time - there are no long term contracts or obligations. The New Mover Program does have a guarantee: if another new mover program produces better results than the New Mover Outreach program, we will refund your $79.95 set up fee so you can switch back. You must try the New Mover Outreach program for four months and switch back to a previous program. Call for details.
