5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully refreshing combination 27 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderfully refreshing combination of management process, practical advice and holy spirit involvement.

I have read management books that left me feeling like the church was to be run like a corporation and devoid of God; Books that were so full of action I felt exhausted before I started and ones that were were so spiritual that I felt inadequate because nothing they spoke about happened for me or or church. THIS BOOK IS NOTHING LIKE THOSE!

FUSION is an inspiring and practical look and seeing people grow in their relationship with Jesus which will, inevitably, see your church grow. What I loved was the way it looks to turn the people already coming through your doors into members with great practical advice and insights!

5.0 out of 5 stars Your church will benefit greatly from this book! 1 Jan 2008
By Bryan G. Gerstel - Published on Amazon.com
Every church needs systems to accomplish their purpose. We spend so much time, energy and money on getting first-time guests into our churches. But what do we do AFTER they have come into our doors? That's where Fusion will make a HUGE difference to every pastor and church leader. Step by step, Nelson guides you through an assimilation system that WILL give you great results in taking first-time guests to membership. If you are looking for what works - this is it!

Let me invite you to follow the steps that our church, The Pointe ([...] located in Albany, Georgia, took and in less than 18 months have grown from zero to over 600 attending each week! The steps you find in this book are a MAJOR reason we have seen our growth!

Are you a church leader looking for a proven system to assimilate first-time guests into your church? Are you a pastor looking for a system that you can build a team around? Fusion is the answer. This book belongs on every pastor's/church leader's list of books to read in 2008! Get yours today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Practical 3 Jan 2008
By Hal Mayer - Published on Amazon.com
We are a 2 year old church plant in Tampa (Church at the Bay). What I love about Nelson's system is it can be given to a new staff member or volunteer and they can run the process for the church (we did this!). As a church start, we put tons of energy into getting people to come for the first time. The next step is to turn those first time guests into regular attenders and Christ Followers. This book will help your church to help people establish a growing relationship with Jesus Christ!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for New Teams, Hard For Established Ones 25 Jan 2008
By Lucas Trouten - Published on Amazon.com
This book is one-stop shopping for any church looking to build up a new assimilation team. It has example letters, equations for calculating visitor retention and a start-to-finish approach of assimilation.
If you're looking to boost you're already established method, this book may not be quite right. It's all-inclusive nature makes it hard to pick pieces out to adapt for your own setting, meaning it might require a complete rebuild of your assimilation process (not necessarily a bad thing?)rather than some productive tweaking.
That said, it's a great, concise, and thorough look at a healthy and productive process for turning guests into members.

5.0 out of 5 stars NELSON HAS DONE IT AGAIN 1 Jan 2008
By I Read Freely - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a great book on Assimilation. Although I have his audio seminar and much is repeated from that, this book adds to an already proven strategy. Nelson is a practitioner and has the ability to transfer concepts into workable real steps you can take now.Full of nuggets, insights,statistical truths, and more, this book is not only one of the few on the subject, but one you cannot be without.Not every part of this plan will work in your culture, as Nelson clearly states, but many of these are principles and not strategies, which makes them adaptable to any setting. Also a very easy read, not shallow, but easy.Thanks again Nelson, Roy, and Kerrick. Will see you at the next event. Victory Outreach Alcance Victoria Brooklyn, Pastor Eddie Ramirez

5.0 out of 5 stars Max Out Your Seating Capacity. We Did! 23 Mar 2010
By Rick Dorr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As the Senior Pastor of a church in a small community, we were always looking for ways to not only reach people, but keep people. The Book Fusion has given us a formula that works. After implementing the ideas presented by Nelson, we have seen our first time guests turn into second time guests and then into regular attendees. As a result, we have grown from an average weekly attendance of 180 to 225 in just 3 months. Awesome! The book gave us some powerful ideas. These are some take away's from the book that have revolutionized our church.

1. The guests who come through our doors are gifts from God and what we do with that gift proves how much we appreciate them. No one person who comes through our door comes haphazardly. By sending that guest to us, God is giving us the privilege of cooperating with Him to move someone forward in their journey toward Jesus.

2. All we get is 7 minutes to make a positive first impression. In the first seven minutes of contact with our church, our first-time guests will know whether or not they are coming back.

3. The four components of the pre-service will help determine whether our first-time guests will return or not. These four components are crucial in creating the first impression. They way we greet people, direct people, treat people, and seat people will make their experience with us a lasting one.

4. Creating a Communication Card is crucial, not just for us, but for our 1st time guest. This is how we can help them move from un-churched visitors to fully developing followers of Jesus. Having everyone from member to first-time time guest fill out the card is necessary to help our guests fill out their card.

5. Follow through is not optional; it's integral. Our follow-up needs to be fast but it has to be friendly and not look like some mass mailing. But it also needs to contain a gift which lets them know that we truly appreciated their being our guests.

6. When our guests return for a second look, we have won 80% of the battle because we have increased our chances that they will begin a journey with Christ. It is during this second visit that we encourage them to take the next steps and we follow-up with them again through either e-mail or snail mail.

7. A major key is to create sticky situations because if we do not connect our second time guests to others in our church, within four to six months they will be gone. Our job is to guide them in the right direction to form relationships that 10. We want to offer people service opportunities because this gives people an opportunity to connect with others as well as helping them take ownership of the church. And, as they take ownership of the church that moves them closer to church membership.

This book has been a gift from God. Thanks nelson.
