Not Our Favorite Thing
It's that time again - to try to make some new contacts. This is definitely one of the hardest things about this business, introducing ourselves to new churches and trying to convince them in a few minutes of time that we're not scammers or the typical worldly dating site.
So we set about cold calling again, but this time armed with a product, our new dvd, Christian Dating - Redefined. Before I go on, I have to add that my heart was beating out my chest when I left a message for the singles pastor at Greg Laurie's Harvest Church... at least the secretary was very nice :) Well, the great thing about our new dvd is it explains our foundation in a succinct, edgy manner that resonates with everyone, whether they are singles or pastors. You should take a minute to check out the Trailer if you haven't already. We especially hope to convey that we are all about the same mission, helping singles stay committed to biblical principles. Although our emphasis is on keeping God in the center of building love relationships, we're all really doing God's business. And as much as pastors sometimes would like to overlook the issue of dating and romance, we know God has hardwired man to love and be loved, and this need and desire can't be denied. So why not meet singles where they are today and help them strengthen their faith along the way? Okay, enough of this...
We found that most singles pastors are open to receiving something for free so we decided we will use the first shipment to send out to pastors and ask that they preview the dvd. If they like what they see, we hope they will agree to use the materials for their singles groups, which will in turn promote Cache' Connections. Whew! I know it sounds like a long shot, but, God willing, this will be just another piece of the puzzle that eventually will connect the pieces and whalah - Cache' Connections becomes a household name across the nation!
Well, onto another day of cold calling - as Linda and often say when we face something unpleasant - "It's our favorite thing!" :)
Have a great weekend!
P.S. If you think YOUR pastor would be interested in viewing the DVD, please contact us!
