E-Prospect Card / Church Drive Concept / Member Mission Results / Incentives

Brother Knights,

If your council does not have a Prospect Landing Page yet, get one at the earliest opportunity.  You can request your Prospect Landing Page from Supreme by going to this link: http://info.kofc.org/pagerequest.html.  The screen shot below is what you will be directed to:

 

 

This prospecting system gives councils the means to implement E-Prospect Cards, which can be used at all Faith in Action program events and at your Church drives.  Please review the Prospecting Page FAQs sheet at the following link:

http://kofc-wa.org/FrontPageContent/Membership/Your%20Prospecting%20Page%20FAQ.pdf.   Continue to promote Online Membership as a key component in your recruitment efforts this year. 

Please review Membership Action Items for the months of May and June and put forth extra effort to recruit new members. 

Go to this link: http://kofc-wa.org/FrontPageContent/Membership/2018-2019%20Membership%20Action%20Plan%20R11.pdf 

If you did not conduct a Church Drive in March or April, I encourage you to host one in May or June to finish the year strong.  Contact your DD about the new Delta Church Drive concept. For more details and planning assistance on how to conduct a Church Drive contact the State Membership Team or refer to the Membership Recruitment and Retention Manual, #10237 4-16, for details, https://www.kofc.org/en/resources/membership/membership_recruitment_6.pdf.  Details on planning, preparations and ordering supplies can be found here: http://www.kofc.org/un/en/members/membership/recruitment-strategies/church-drive.html

Key items for a Church Drive:

Order a Church Drive Kit from Supreme through Supplies Online.  The Church Recruitment Drive Kit provides a council with the forms and brochures needed to recruit new members. A council only needs one kit to hold a Church Drive at their parish.  The kit itself is free. You can order the kit in English, French or Spanish.  I also recommend ordering these items, 50 each: (all free, pay shipping only)

#10395-G, Protecting Families for Generations

#10537, Why Join (compliments #10536, Born a Man-Become a Knight, listed above)

#2761-G, Family Fraternal Benefits Flyer

Submit for your Prospect Landing Page now and have it up and running on a phone, tablet or computer during the Church drive. 

Attend training arranged by your District Deputy on the Delta Church Drive.  This concept does not call for a lot of brochures.  New kits are available from Supreme.  Join Online instructions should be available.

Have several council members on hand during the drive weekend who have been assigned specific tasks:

Information Table Captains in front of the table

Vestibule Ambassadors to greet parishioners before/after Mass, present a simple gift on behalf of the council (prayer card, council newsletter, brochure #10100), thank them for their support and extend an invitation to join while directing attention to the information table for more information (4-5 per vestibule)

Pulpit Orator (if allowed by Pastor) to give a quick overview of the Knights and direct attention to Knights in the vestibules after Mass – Pastor may be willing to do this at the end of Mass

Guy in Charge - Grand Knight/Membership Director to coordinate and oversee the drive

Please review the Member Mission results through April 17, 2019, in this bulletin.  Shoot for Star Council and notice the results in your parish.
