“Good News” Brochure Distribution Program to Expand

February 22, 2012

Successful U.S. Member Participation Program to Begin 14th Distribution Year

We are pleased to announce that four new tri-fold brochures and an updated earlier one are now available for distribution by brethren and congregations in the United States. The brochures offer potential readers a free, one-year subscription to The Good News magazine and one of our foundational booklets. The brochure titles include:

  • Heaven and Hell – What Does the Bible Really Teach?
  • Holidays or Holy Days – Does it Matter Which Days We Observe?
  • Managing Your Finances
  • The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy
  • What Happens After Death? (updated)

For the last 13 years the Good News brochure distribution program has been an important part of the efforts of the United Church of God to publish the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. Since 1999 our dedicated church members have distributed over half a million brochures. These brochures have generated 10,046 subscriber responses equaling an overall excellent 1.95 percent response at a very fine $1.56 cost per response. Below are brochure distribution totals for each year:

  • 1999            21,497
  • 2000            43,500
  • 2001            40,200
  • 2002            51,250
  • 2003            21,840
  • 2004            13,835
  • 2005            108,535
  • 2006            71,665
  • 2007            58,408
  • 2008            31,555
  • 2009            18,485
  • 2010            27,080
  • 2011            6,620

Total            514,470

Over the previous 13 years brethren have placed brochures in restaurants, supermarkets, motels, hospital and clinic lobbies, auto-repair shops, hairdressers, senior centers, libraries, convenience stores and many other locations.

Whether brochures are placed in a display or a few are left on a table for pick-up in such locations, many distribution opportunities exist to reach potential readers. Additionally, members have used brochures as an opportunity to introduce the Church’s literature to interested relatives, friends, neighbors and co-workers.

As we begin our 14th distribution year, we invite all brethren and congregations in the United States to participate in this newly expanded program. This program is one in which every member can be involved.

  1. Wondered if you guys have ever thought of doing “Mini booklets”?
    In other words just a basic focus on a topic including essential
    scriptures and then if readers want
    more detail then the Mini Booklet would direct them to a more
    detailed version or the website or both….

  2. Be sure to recycle all of your UCG church literature and not just throw them away.

    I always place my old Good News Magazines on magazine tables at banks, or bus stops, or restaurant waiting areas.

    Imagine if all 350k subscribers did the same thing every month, we would, in effect DOUBLE circulation without spending one more dime!
