    Your Membership, Programs Strengthen Men’s Faith

    Knight Dustin Dean had zero insurance experience. But General Agent Mickey Dougherty guided him. Dean reflects on his gratitude.

    1/6/2020

    Membership and programs go hand in hand. Without membership, there can be no programs. Without programs, our membership will wither away.

    We are in the midst of Lent. If we wish to continue to be the “strong right arm of the Church,” our councils should be taking the lead in participating in (and even in) organizing spiritual and faith-based activities.

    Has your council embraced the new Faith In Action programs rolled out last July? Go to www.kofc.org/faithinaction and review the Faith in Action Overview. It will help to make your council become firmly rooted in faith and in action. Review the eight Faith activities and implement one (or more) of them during this Lenten season.

    Faith activities will entice more young men who are thirsting for spirituality to join the Knights. Keep in mind that EVERY program activity is a membership opportunity.

    Near the end of an activity, determine which men are NAKY (Not A Knight Yet). If these non-Knights liked the event, they may be ready to join. Ask them.

    Be sure to have your Council Prospecting landing Page (see below) ready so you can capture their contact information electronically. All prospects who are entered into the Council Landing Page will be sent a weekly email from the Supreme Council office. Be sure to also send a personal email to your prospects highlighting your council’s upcoming Faith In Action program activities. Keep their interest and eventually they will join.

    Once a Knight joins online, how do you get him involved in your council? You use Faith In Action, according to Doug Oldmixon, past state deputy of Texas.

    He says, “Reach out with a simple reminder of each opportunity for personal involvement. Come give blood.

    Come serve food. Join us for morning prayer, even if it’s just before golf. Since he is already a member, something will eventually catch his eye and move his heart.”
