Speaker 1:                           00:00                     Do you have an amazing life changing conference and at that amazing life changing conference, you are sitting there and you are thinking, wow, I wish so-and-so had signed up. I wish that they were here. They would be benefiting so much from this. And then if you’re like me, you start to ask the question, is there something that I could have done differently? Could I have explained this a little bit better? Uh, I’ve been recruiting to conferences on a college campus for the last 16 years. And so several years ago I began to research and I’m beginning to read and I’m beginning to experiment and try different tactics. And as I tried different things, um, I began to see different things start to work. And I began to see that guy or that girl that we really wanted to go. They started signing up and we started getting more and more of them and the number of people that we are taking to our conference, the number of lives that we are impacting, uh, was going up.

Speaker 1:                           01:00                     As we got more people to our conference, you know, seven years ago we started a, uh, ministry. And in our first year we had 28 people go. It was an unbelievable number for us. And then several years later we had 400 people going, uh, to our conference, which was, uh, more people going to our winter conference, uh, than we had shown up at our weekly meeting. And I would say about 70% of these students were not believers. Uh, and most of them had not grown up in church, but we, uh, had convinced them to take this four day trip with us to this Christian conference. And it’s because of some of the things that I want to teach you guys in this course that I have created. So one question I want to ask you is, what is your number? What is the number of people that, uh, you want to take to your conference?

Speaker 1:                           01:58                     Um, well let me share this. Your number doesn’t matter. And what I mean by that is, um, your number, you cannot compare your number to another campus, to another, uh, group on campus. If another staff member is getting X number of people and you want to get X number, every group is different. Every campus is different. Every campus ministry is different. Every conference is different. And so you want to maximize, uh, the, the, the number of people, like whatever your potential is, you want to get that number there. You don’t want to leave anything on the table. And that’s where we were. So the year that we got a 28, honestly I was going for 10 and 28 was an amazing number is because we applied some of the things that I want to teach in this course in the years that we got 400, there was actually some years that I thought we could’ve got five or 600, but again, when we got 400, I was excited.

Speaker 1:                           02:55                     That was the number that the Lord gave us. And um, we, uh, again applied the things that I want to teach you guys. So, uh, in this course there’s 10 different lessons. Uh, each, each one is anywhere from five minutes to 10 minutes. Uh, some of the lessons are very top level. Like having the right mindset, uh, how to get your leaders bond in. Some of them are very specific. You could jump right to them. How to have a recruiting appointment, how to get a yes every time because I know is awkward. And if you learn this little tip, uh, you will see the number of people that you and your student leaders are inviting go way up. And if you invite more people, you’re going to see more of the people you want at your conference. Uh, how much is this? Well, one question I want to start with.

Speaker 1:                           03:43                     How much would you pay to get that right guy or that right girl to your conference? Would you give them $100 scholarship so that they would go, uh, I know at our conferences we were giving literally thousands of dollars away every year in comp, in scholarships and felt great about it because I had this mindset, I’m going to do whatever I can to get, uh, guys and girls to this conference. And so, um, you know, I had the mindset man, whatever it takes, right? So this course is $99. And if you join the endurance, which is 10 bucks a month, you get this course included, you could definitely join the endurance for the 30 day trial. Uh, won’t cost you anything. And then, uh, you get this course for free for 30 days and then you can quit the insurance. I don’t care. Uh, so, uh, I get excited about you guys taking this course.

Speaker 1:                           04:39                     I decided about helping you and sharing with some of the things that I’ve learned. Uh, man, I would love to help you get that guy or the girl that you’ve been investing in and you know that your conference would help them take it, their, uh, their spiritual life to the next level. Um, whether it’s a nonbeliever or whether it’s someone who is a leader in your ministry and they might make that decision to go overseas one day. Whatever it is, let’s help them get to your conference. So if you have any questions, hit me upBlake@theendurance.org.
