One of my biggest headaches in youth ministry, is the sign up system for events. It is an exercise in futility. Names on sheets of paper feels archaic. I feel like I am asking them to churn butter.
Let’s face it, It doesn’t matter how many SIGN UP for “the next beat thing” a quarter to half will not show up. When Facebook’s Create Event feature was released many moons ago, I thought it was a God- send but, then Instagram came along. The events worked good letting parents know, but not for signing up kids.
What are your sign up headaches? How can we get more kids signed up and to stay on until the event? Is there a better, easier, or funner (not a word) way?
