Worton, Md. (PRWEB) June 18, 2009 — It’s one of those effects of a bad economy that you seldom consider until someone mentions it: Churches are not advertising as much, and as a result, are not drawing as many people to their services (as reported by D. Burke, Religion News Service).
The lagging advertising trend is due to a couple of reasons, both related to the current recession: First, people are giving less in the church offering, which means the church has less money to spend on radio or newspaper ads. And second, newspapers, which are on the verge of extinction, are raising their ad rates, struggling to break even–and often pricing churches out of the market.
