Give Quality and Get a Good Name

A good name is to be more desired than great wealth, Favor is better than silver and gold. - Proverbs 22:1 (NIV)

We need to provide quality service to people. In order to do so, we may have to see things from a program participant’s point of view as we plan. If you run an after school program, think about quality from the perspective of a student, a parent and the principal. What spells quality for them? Look at your urban youth ministry from the youth perspective. Place yourself in the participant’s shoes.
  • What matters most to them?
  • What is of value to them?
Keep this in mind as you develop your future programs and adjust your existing ones.

Quality may not necessarily beget quantity, but a quality experience is rewarding and beneficial because it gets people talking about your program and what it offers them. As people talk up your program and its many benefits and blessings, others will get wind of the good work that you do. These people may not only be potential participants but also potential donors or referrals for others who may participate. That makes a big difference when you have limited marketing and recruiting budget dollars for the work that you do.

Give people a quality experience and get people talking about their experience with your organization.

A good name is better than fine perfume . . .- Ecclesiastes 7:1 (NIV)
