Emotional Appeals for Sponsorship: Right or Wrong?

Posted By Web Team On October 19, 2009 @ 9:46 am In Sponsors and Donors | 108 Comments

Emotional appeals When you watch the Catalyst 2009 [3] do you feel it was manipulative? Is it all right to ask people to give, or act, in the middle of experiencing an emotional moment?

Nathan Creitz, author of ChurchEthos: “a blog that encourages thinking Christianly about the habits and customs of the Church and about our reputation with the unchurched,” says:

This video is worth watching for two reasons:

  1. To see God’s love at work through His people and to see the powerful story of Jimmy and Mark.
  2. To see how NOT to use such a moment to advance an agenda.

What do you think? Do you agree?

Let us know after you read Nathan’s entire blog post [4] at ChurchEthos to get the context for his opinion.
