As you prepare for your D Now weekend you have many roles to play. You have a lot of administrative tasks to tend to. Many of you may have to write curriculum. And of course in the midst of everything else you have to do you are still first and foremost a minister. But there is another role that you must play if you want your event to be successful and in a way this may be the most important role of all. If you want your event to be the best it can be you must, to an extent, be a salesman. This may not be a role you have considered before but in this article I want to share with you in what ways you need to be the best salesman you can be.
First of all you need to sell your event to your students. D Now is a wonderful event and can be a life changing moment for the students in your ministry. But if none of them show up what is the point? Yes in an ideal world students would just come but we know this is not the case. There is a lot competing for our students' time and attention. We also need to take time and caution to not make our students think ministry is all about events. But a little selling is important, especially for an event like this one.
