Local church growth,

powered by the Google Ad Grant.

A digital outreach strategy to reach your community’s needs.

Your community is searching for hope.
Google will give you $10,000 to reach them every month.

Churches are shrinking while depression, drug abuse, divorce, suicide are all on the rise. 

People have questions, the church should be the answer. 

Reach The Lost™ fuels local church growth with the free, $10,000/month Google Ad Grant. This customizable solution comes alongside your church to help reach more people in your local area. 

Reach people searching “churches near me”.

600,000 people this weekend will use Google to find a new church to visit. Ranking for these searches is one of the easiest paths to seeing more visitors. 

Good SEO is a necessary long-term investment, but the Google Ad Grant can help your church top the search results immediately by appearing as a sponsored listing.

Reach people’s felt needs.

Your community is going to Google to get answers to their parenting, marriage, mental health, and other questions. 

Funnels and landing pages can utilize the Grant to reach a free audience and connect them with your services, ministries, and events.

Our semi-custom landing pages keeps all the work off your plate, and our team works with you to make sure everything looks and sounds like you.

Reach people with your events and ministries.

People are looking for moms groups, bible studies, family activities, and more events and programs that you are already doing. The grant, along with our team of experts, can create ads that promote your existing ministries and outreach events.

Maximize the Grant

Most churches have a hard time spending more than $500/month. Our churches average $6,000/month in free ad spend.

Built with Outreach in Mind

Don’t spend the grant on vanity metrics. Every page and ad is part of a custom strategy to reach more local people with your ministry.

Feels Like You

We work with you to make the grant work for your church’s goals, and our felt-needs pages are customizeable, so they are a seamless fit for your church.

Church Google Ad Grant Management

Our system allows for greater use of the Google Ad Grant to meet your community’s needs and have a meaningful connection with your church.

What is the Google Ad Grant

As a nonprofit, you can receive $10,000 in in-kind advertising dollars each money. This money can be used to advertise on the Google search results page, which could bring up to 6,000 people to your website each month.

How Google Ads Work

The ads you see at the top of a Google search are called Google Ads. The businesses that place these ads pay Google each time someone clicks on them. Nonprofits receive $10,000 per month from Google to spend on these ads.

Potential Kingdom Impact

90% of people are using Google to find answers to their questions.

They are searching for: best churches near me, date night ideas, why should I trust the Bible, parenting advice, and more.

You can’t beat Psychology Today or The New York Times to be at the top of the organic search results. But you can use the Google Ad Grant to be the top result to these questions through Google Ads.

Getting the Most Out of the Google Ad Grant

“We had the Google Ad Grant, but we were
only able to spend $300-400 each month.”
– Our clients, all the time.

We help you maximize the full $10,000. Our team of Google Ads experts and content strategists create ads and campaigns based off your goals and our in-depth keyword research. We then continually optimize the campaigns to maximize the grant.
