We build online pathways that get people from Google to your church.

Our customizable pages are intended to identify people’s major search topics in your area, answer their questions, and invite them to your services, ministries, and events.

People have questions, and the Church has answers. Our Pathways give you customizeable landing pages that target popular searches, answer their questions, and invite them to your church or ministries.

Hear From Our Churches
Valley View Christian Church
I’ve been working with Rochelle & RTL for several months and it has been such an amazing experience! Our church (Valley View Christian Church) has seen impressive growth and interaction with our Google Ads. Rochelle and the team actually CARE about the ministry that’s going on within our church and really give that personal attention to give us the best support!
I had a new member class recently ask about digital outreach and digital strategy, and I was able to lean on what you guys do with the articles as part of our digital outreach and meeting people’s needs.
Greenwood Community 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.
I have questions
What is the Google Grant?
The Google Ad Grant is a free $10,000 per month in free ad spend given to registered nonprofits through Google for Nonprofits.
Are Google Ad Grants worth it for churches?
YES! The grant will give you $10,000 to reach your community, but you need a strategy to use all of it. You can use the grant to reach more people looking for a church, moms looking for support groups, couples looking for marriage resources, and more.
Who is eligible for the Google Ad Grants program?
Any organization with a 501c3 status and is not an educational institution meets the eligibility requirements. Google requires that you sign up for a google ads account and complete the application to receive grant money.
Do I have to learn about conversion tracking, quality scores, and click through rates?
Maintaining healthy metrics allows the grant to grow and continue performing. You can do it yourself, Google has lots of courses to teach you. However, it will take a lot of time invested to learn, and more to continue maintaining the grant. We come alongside you so you can focus on other things.
Does this really have Kingdom impact?
Churches are spending thousands of dollars a year on postcards that lack measurable impact.
By using Reach The Lost and the Google Grant, you can get your church out into your community in measurable ways. Target people that are ready for your church. Track impressions, clicks, interactions, form fill outs, and more.
Our partner churches receive dozens of connect cards, prayer requests, and more. They know the real names of people the Grant has connected them with.
How much more work would this add for me?
Working with Reach The Lost keeps work off your plate. We handle all content development, technical implementation and maintenance. You meet with us once every 4-6 weeks to give us updated event advertising needs and approve published content, we handle the rest.
How can I measure results?
We give you access to a robust analytics platform to give you full transparency into ad group performance. We’ll walk you through it regularly, and we monitor perforamance weekly to make necessary adjustments so you get the best results possible.
What sort of commitment do I need to make?
Churches are on a month-to-month commitment, so there is no contract required. However, Google works like a primed pump, so we ask for an initial 6 months to ensure you can see full results.
Will this work in my church's city?
People in your city need hope, no matter where you live. We work in a diverse collection of cities, and pay attention to publish content that meets the unique needs of your community.
