Title: The Church and the market
Authors: Jennings, F. David
Issue Date: 1998
Publisher: © David Jennings
Abstract: This research seeks to examine the perception and attitude towards the discipline of marketing within the Church. At a time of significant decline in Church attendance, and much discussion about the use and appropriateness of marketing, the research was undertaken to test the validity of such, amongst the clergy. The results could clearly be important for the Church as it seeks to reverse possible terminal decline. Clergy were tested for their support, or otherwise, in respect of a variety of marketing positions; and their views were sought concerning what they thought the Church offered or sold to existing, or potential customers, and whether they believed the Church should be marketed. The stated desire, or not, to market the Church was correlated to their understanding of the discipline and requirement of marketing as a valid, relevant and appropriate tool for reversing the decline in Church congregations, and the possibility of securing a significant increase in the same.
