Why is recruiting Table Hosts so important - can't we just mail to people and have them come?
The success or failure of your dinner will be dependent on table hosts. Staff simply don’t have enough friends or contacts for that matter and they need the help of others in inviting guests. Each host unit (single or couple) will be asked to fill a table with three or four other couples interested in seeing students brought to Christ. The invitation must be specific and personal in nature.
Why should I invite my personal supporters? Won't that take away from money that they are personally giving me?
It is a misconception that inviting your personal ministry partners will cause them to give
elsewhere. On the contrary, by attending the dinner, your partners will get a greater vision and perspective of your ministry. If anything, they are most likely to increase their giving rather than decrease!
