Emotional Appeals for Sponsorship: Right or Wrong?
Posted By Web Team On October 19, 2009 @ 9:46 am In Sponsors and Donors | 108 Comments
When you watch the Catalyst 2009  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:
- To see God’s love at work through His people and to see the powerful story of Jimmy and Mark.
- 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  at ChurchEthos to get the context for his opinion.
