  The tipping point in the growth of today’s ministry is no longer its size, but the cultural competencies it uses to enlist early-adopters from the local communities, who are thriving in the digital culture, and eventually to grow with them into a faith community. I.G.N.i2T.E. Ministry Innovation Diffusion is designed to guide you through the process of developing a community outreaching ministry based on this claim. However, it often demands a greater deal of coordinated efforts and resources, and it is very hard for a single congregation to afford for reaching out with new people, especially the unchurched. Even before enjoying the return of their investment, these efforts easily become deferred to another ministry urgency. What is the remedy for this? How can you lower the operating expenses and boost inbound and outbound marketing at the same time? How can you attract the potential target segment with the “Wow” delight factor? How can you grow the community to a critical mass so that it may continually grow organically and become self-sustaining?
