Do you have a live church event coming up and are looking for the best entertainment?
Comedy is an excellent solution to elevate your event and delight guests with some clean, wholesome humor.
Keep reading to discover three important benefits of booking a Christian stand up comedian that should be on your radar.
1. Increase Event Attendance Rate
Does your church struggle with declining attendance? You are not alone. The percentage of parishioners who regularly attend church has consistently gone down in recent years.
Logistical obstacles, increasingly busy lifestyles, competing responsibilities – all of these contribute to the statistics.
One way to compensate for these barriers to participation and increase the attendance rate is to organize live events that stand out from the rest – and treat your guests with some fun, clean humor.
Including a performance by a Christian comedian in your event will re-engage not only current church members but also attract new members looking for a vibrant, lively church community.
2. Facilitate a Welcoming, Relaxed Environment for New Members
Feeling welcomed is one of the main factors that influence people’s decision to join a new congregation. 79% of the people say that this is one of the first things they look for when searching for a new church or house of worship.
It makes sense. Create a warm, welcoming space for new visitors, and they are likely to stick around. But how does booking a Christian stand up comedian tie into that?
Comedy is an instant mood booster and a proven stress reliever. The right comedian will keep spirits high at your event and provide the perfect way for attendees to relax and unwind.
This will help create a warm, tension-free environment and reduce any awkwardness that new members may feel while attending an event organized by your congregation for the first time.
3. Create Fun, Long-Lasting Memories
Proverbs 17:22 states: “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.”
It is true; laughter does amazing things for the soul (we are all familiar with that amazing feeling you have after a great laugh, right?)
And the right Christian stand up comedian will not only entertain and enrich your audience – it will also make your event more memorable.
Booking a fun and professional stand-up act means weeks or even months of your guests referencing that hilarious joke they heard at your event and how much they have enjoyed getting a good laugh.
More than anything else, people remember how they felt at an event. Booking an act that will make attendees laugh will spark an array of positive emotions in them.
And because they will associate your event with a positive feeling, they will be much likely to RSVP to future events you organize as well.
