EXECUTIVE
SUMMARY
Our task at Second Chance was to design
an integrated marketing campaign for
the United Methodist Church (UMC). The
challenge was to create messaging that
would communicate UMC’s values while
showing UMC’s relevance to millennials in
their changing life stages. While the United
Methodist Church is younger than some
other churches, it draws on traditions and
beliefs that are almost 300 years old. And
while these beliefs have stood the test of
time, the church is facing a new obstacle:
the wavering attention span of the millennial
generation. Millennials have received a lot
of attention from academics, as well as
industry professionals because they have
reached the age where they are actively
shaping the communities around them.
To some, millennials are the next wave
of entrepreneurs, ushering in a boost to
the economy and growth in technology. To
others, they are a group full of entitlement
and arrogance. While neither is completely
correct, the millennial stereotype is essential
to UMC’s survival.
5
SECTIONS 1 & 2THE
CHALLENGE
The current UMC congregation is aging out and
new members are not coming in. Although
this a problem across most religions, we
believe we can put UMC in the best position
to overcome this obstacle. As millennials
take longer to settle down, they spend more
time away from the church, and many do not
come back after leaving home, abandoning
any dialogue with the church. Second
Chance is here to help the church re-open
that dialogue. We’re offering insights into
why the younger generation is leaving the
church. On top of that we’re offering creative
ways to speak with millennials, and not just
at them. We have identified ways to engage
with millennials by speaking to them in ways
that are relevant to their lifestyles. Instead
of changing what UMC stands for, we want
to change how people, especially millennials
undertand the United Methodist Church.

TARGET
PERSONAS
Kate grew up going to church with her family but once she went to college, church
was no longer a priority. She frequently checks social media, browses fashion blogs
and magazines, and spends time streaming online TV shows. She enjoys engaging in
volunteer opportunities. As her priorities are shifting, she is realizing she wants to be
apart of something bigger than herself. We have labeled Kate a millennial deserter
and identified people like her as the primary target of our campaign.
KATE
	KATE:
•	 UMC can offer Kate opportunities
	 to give back.
WHAT CAN UMC OFFER TO MILLENNIALS?
	OLIVIA:
•	 UMC can offer Olivia peace of
mind and stability in her fast
paced life.
	JAMES:
•	 UMC can offer James the
opportunity to grow and provides
the right fit.
13
OLIVIA
JAMES
Olivia also grew up going to the church with her family. She comes back to church
periodically when she feels guilty or on major religious holidays. Like Kate, Olivia
also spends time frequently checking social media. She spends time online
shopping and likes to check in with all her friends in group chats. This is important
because she’s an influencer to her peers. Olivia is a millennial yo-yo.
Unlike Kate and Olivia, James did not go to church growing up. James spends
slightly less time online and commutes every day to get to his college campus.
James is seeking a community where he can learn from people with different
backgrounds who are moving towards the same goals in life. We have labeled
James a millennial nomad.

SECTIONS 8 & 9OBJECTIVES:
ADVERTISING & MARKETING
What are we trying to achieve with this strategy?
1.	 Become the right spiritual fit for millennials
a.	 Millennials realize they do not necessarily have to be in church to be 	
	 spiritual. However, spirituality can be enhanced when you have UMC as 	
	 a guide and a community with whom to experience it.
2.	 Become an informational resource for philanthropic efforts
a.	 Millennials are often looking to be a part of something bigger than 		
themselves. Through UMC’s philanthropic opportunities, this desire
	 can be filled.
3.	 Become a source of support for millennials looking for community
a.	 Millennials are often in periods of transition (i.e. graduating college, 		
finding a career, moving to new cities, beginning relationships and/or
starting a family) therefore, UMC can be a constant in their
	 ever-changing lives.
MARKETING
What are we hoping our target understands
from our messaging?
1.	UMC speaks with millennials, not at them.
2.	UMC offers a place where people from different
	 backgrounds can come together as one.
3.	UMC is relevant.

CREATIVE
STRATEGY
Since creative executions are produced for the end
consumer, we chose to listen to millennials wants
and needs and fit them accordingly. In order to really
connect with the target audience, we chose sleek
images and catchy headlines to grab their attention.
The imagery is up-close and personal and relatable to
millennials. The ads convey a light message but are
rooted in deeper meaning. Millennials do not want
to be forced into anything, therefore, we just offer to
open the doors.
21
SECTION 11
CONCEPT 1:
“LEGAL TALK”
22
“LEGAL TALK”
Through primary research, we discovered that certain
millennials felt churchgoers were judgemental of
non-churchgoers. In their minds, churchgoers had
a certain stigma of seeming critical and uninviting.
While this is something that UMC cannot necessarily
control, we can tackle this obstacle by making the
target audience feel important, understood and
valued. The message is not age specific and can
work universally with both primary and secondary
audiences. The common tagline in these ads will
resonate with anyone who feels like they are “too far
gone.” Viewers will walk away feeling hopeful.

CONCEPT 2:
“JOKES ASIDE”
25
SECTION 11.2
26
“JOKES ASIDE”
Humor plays a very important role in millennials’ lives;
therefore, we want to speak their language in order
to better attract them. “Jokes Aside” is a concept
that addresses the issue of millennials perceiving
church to be dull. Our idea challenges that notion,
without having to change anything about the church.
We want United Methodist Church to be relatable
and approachable. The idea is simple. Grab their
attention by calling them out, and then present them
with a benefit and a call-to-action by using humor to
our advantage. Beneath the humor lies a rich layer of
social commentary about things that most millennials
can relate to. It’s almost as if we are holding up a
mirror and having them confront realities that they
can identify with- and hopefully laugh about!

CONCEPT 3:
“MY KIND OF CHURCH”

SECTION 11.3

“MY KIND
OF CHURCH”
“My Kind of Church” is a campaign that targets
millennials that are interested in volunteering yet
see church as being inconvenient, time consuming
and lacks community. Therefore, they are leaning
towards other resources for volunteerism. Based
on this insight, we decided on a campaign that
shows millennials that church doesn’t just happen
on Sundays but whenever there is an opportunity
to help. “My Kind of Church” showcases how UMC
places primary emphasis on putting faith and love
into action. Each image in these ads represents
community and a specific benefit that the target
audience can achieve. Ultimately, the goal is not
to change the United Methodist Church, but rather
change the way the millennials think about the
church. “My Kind of Church” shows them exactly how
UMC can make a difference in their lives.

MEDIA
OBJECTIVES
PROBLEMS
The United Methodist Church is not communicating
their ideals in a way that is relevant to millennials,
leading to a disconnect.
OBJECTIVES
To establish that the United Methodist Church is
relevant to what millennials value. This will be done
by making an emotional connection with millennials
where they already spend time communicating with
each other.
STRATEGY
Our media strategy is to approach millennials on
digital platforms that they frequently use and in
physical locations that will break through the clutter of
the advertising they see every day. For our digital ads,
we chose to place them on light-hearted websites that
millennials visit frequently. These included: Buzzfeed,
LinkedIn, Facebook, Spotify and Pandora.
33
SECTION 12
The largest part of the the budget is placed within
Buzzfeed because their audience is exactly our target
demographic. Instead of choosing a more serious
news outlet such as CNN or USA Today, we chose to
place our ads in a more light hearted social news and
entertainment environment to match the message of
our ads. Buzzfeed is so impactful because 75% of
their traffic is from social referrals. This is important
in reaching millennials because they are a generation
who are much more likely to click something if one of
their friends posted it. Similarly, Elite Daily offers
the same demographic reach skewed more
towards females.
The next largest chunk of the budget was spent on
LinkedIn and Facebook. As mentioned previously,
we want to reach millennials who are possibly
transitioning through life stages such graduating
college and finding their first career, for example.
LinkedIn is becoming the go-to place to search for job
and connect with professional contacts, which makes
it the perfect place to serve and ad which suggests
another type of change. Facebook, on the other hand,
offers great customization options in terms of targeting
an audience and specifying certain demographics and
psychographics we want to reach with our ads.
Lastly in our digital strategy, we have chosen to target
our audience on Spotify and Pandora. Millennials are
the largest and most engaged audience on Pandora
and Spotify. Specifically, Pandora reaches 54% of the
entire millennial digital audience. This number, along
with the easy personalization of ads on Spotify and
Pandora will allow us to tap into the passion point of
music which is proven way to tune into Millennials.
To round out our campaign, we have also chosen a
two month run on a test market billboard because
millennials are a generation on the move. They are
constantly commuting and exploring the cities within
which they live. In addition to the great deal of
creativity a billboard allows, out of home is one of the
most memorable media, second only to TV.
34
WEBSITE
The proposed website is a “responsive website,”
which means that it responds and adapts depending
upon the layout of the specific device. We have also
freshened up the images and overall style of the site,
making it appeal to millennials.
HOMEPAGE:
Millennials like to use websites as their primary
source of information. We have added features
with the sole purpose of making this website more
engaging and information rich for our Millennial
targets. “What to Expect” is a feature that displays
a quick video showing what it would be like to
attend a church service. Another feature, “Volunteer
Opportunities,” uses location tracking technology to
find filtered opportunities nearest to you.
35
SECTION 13
VOLUNTEER:
We have designed the landing page as a place
for visitors that have engaged with our ads. We
believe that having landing pages will increase our
engagement with our target if they answer the call
to action promoted by our ads. Here, they can find
ways to volunteer, both physically and virtually. We
promote opportunities for online volunteerism such
as donating, engaging in social campaigns, and even
recruiting team members for your own cause. Now,
it will be difficult for millennials to say “I don’t have
time to volunteer.”
We have designed a landing page where traffic will
be sent specifically to prompt a certain action, in
our case, it will inform our target of volunteering
opportunities at UMC. Landing pages are great
advertising and marketing tools because they help
measure the effectiveness of campaigns with the use
of analytics, Adsense, and built-in plugins.

CAMPAIGN
EVALUATION
Our campaign is designed to open a
dialogue between the United Methodist
Church and the millennial generation.
It is being done in a lighthearted way
that resonates with millennial values and
interests. By connecting with millennials
instead of lecturing them, a relationship
can be built where millennials will share
what the church has to offer.
Through our research, we found that most
millennials had gone to church growing
up, but for various reasons, stopped
going as they got older.
However, this isn’t to say they are a
heathen generation; they simply feel
that they can be spiritual without going
to church. Millennials do want to be
a part of something bigger than just
themselves though. This idea lead us
to focus on reducing the psychological
barriers millennials face going to
church, and showing them that the
church understands who they are as a
generation.

United Methodist Church: Agency Proposal

  • 4. 4 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Our task at Second Chance was to design an integrated marketing campaign for the United Methodist Church (UMC). The challenge was to create messaging that would communicate UMC’s values while showing UMC’s relevance to millennials in their changing life stages. While the United Methodist Church is younger than some other churches, it draws on traditions and beliefs that are almost 300 years old. And while these beliefs have stood the test of time, the church is facing a new obstacle: the wavering attention span of the millennial generation. Millennials have received a lot of attention from academics, as well as industry professionals because they have reached the age where they are actively shaping the communities around them. To some, millennials are the next wave of entrepreneurs, ushering in a boost to the economy and growth in technology. To others, they are a group full of entitlement and arrogance. While neither is completely correct, the millennial stereotype is essential to UMC’s survival.
  • 5. 5 SECTIONS 1 & 2THE CHALLENGE The current UMC congregation is aging out and new members are not coming in. Although this a problem across most religions, we believe we can put UMC in the best position to overcome this obstacle. As millennials take longer to settle down, they spend more time away from the church, and many do not come back after leaving home, abandoning any dialogue with the church. Second Chance is here to help the church re-open that dialogue. We’re offering insights into why the younger generation is leaving the church. On top of that we’re offering creative ways to speak with millennials, and not just at them. We have identified ways to engage with millennials by speaking to them in ways that are relevant to their lifestyles. Instead of changing what UMC stands for, we want to change how people, especially millennials undertand the United Methodist Church.
  • 6. 6 UMC ANALYSIS Founded in 1968 12.3 million members 13,000+ churches worldwide The Evangelical United Brethren Church + The Methodist Church = United Methodist Church Open Hearts, Open Minds, and Open Doors. God’s grace is available to all. “Faith does not happen overnight, but rather is a journey.” —www.umc.org Mission By working together, we accomplish more. Worldwide Community Seek out opportunities to transform lives. Active Discipleship Sharing God’s love by offering hope and healing to those looking for more meaning in their lives. 1986 12.3h hh 13,000+ggg

  • 9. 9 SECTION 4 • Millennials want to figure things out for themselves, even if it’s the hard way • Millennials love to feel like they belong • They want a constant support system • They want to express their spirituality in ways other than going to church Respondents grew up going to church. Respondents believe they can connect with their spirituality in ways other than going to church. Community was the number 1 most answered answer with 46% writing some form of this in an open ended question. Respondents are more likely to volunteer with a group of people, than by themselves. 69% of respondents now go less than 6 times a year with 36% of those never going at all. Aspect about belonging to a church that resonate with millennials: KEY INSIGHT: SO WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
  • 10. 10 SWOT ANALYSIS STRENGTHS OPPORTUNITIES • Large following • Hundreds of churches around the U.S. • Not an overbearing denomination • Less rules than many sects of Christianity/ religion in general • Open Hearts. Open Minds.

  • 12. 12 TARGET PERSONAS Kate grew up going to church with her family but once she went to college, church was no longer a priority. She frequently checks social media, browses fashion blogs and magazines, and spends time streaming online TV shows. She enjoys engaging in volunteer opportunities. As her priorities are shifting, she is realizing she wants to be apart of something bigger than herself. We have labeled Kate a millennial deserter and identified people like her as the primary target of our campaign. KATE KATE: • UMC can offer Kate opportunities to give back. WHAT CAN UMC OFFER TO MILLENNIALS? OLIVIA: • UMC can offer Olivia peace of mind and stability in her fast paced life. JAMES: • UMC can offer James the opportunity to grow and provides the right fit.
  • 13. 13 OLIVIA JAMES Olivia also grew up going to the church with her family. She comes back to church periodically when she feels guilty or on major religious holidays. Like Kate, Olivia also spends time frequently checking social media. She spends time online shopping and likes to check in with all her friends in group chats. This is important because she’s an influencer to her peers. Olivia is a millennial yo-yo. Unlike Kate and Olivia, James did not go to church growing up. James spends slightly less time online and commutes every day to get to his college campus. James is seeking a community where he can learn from people with different backgrounds who are moving towards the same goals in life. We have labeled James a millennial nomad. SECTION 6

  • 17. 17 SECTIONS 8 & 9OBJECTIVES: ADVERTISING & MARKETING What are we trying to achieve with this strategy? 1. Become the right spiritual fit for millennials a. Millennials realize they do not necessarily have to be in church to be spiritual. However, spirituality can be enhanced when you have UMC as a guide and a community with whom to experience it. 2. Become an informational resource for philanthropic efforts a. Millennials are often looking to be a part of something bigger than themselves. Through UMC’s philanthropic opportunities, this desire can be filled. 3. Become a source of support for millennials looking for community a. Millennials are often in periods of transition (i.e. graduating college, finding a career, moving to new cities, beginning relationships and/or starting a family) therefore, UMC can be a constant in their ever-changing lives. MARKETING What are we hoping our target understands from our messaging? 1. UMC speaks with millennials, not at them. 2. UMC offers a place where people from different backgrounds can come together as one. 3. UMC is relevant. ADVERTISING

  • 20. 20 CREATIVE STRATEGY Since creative executions are produced for the end consumer, we chose to listen to millennials wants and needs and fit them accordingly. In order to really connect with the target audience, we chose sleek images and catchy headlines to grab their attention. The imagery is up-close and personal and relatable to millennials. The ads convey a light message but are rooted in deeper meaning. Millennials do not want to be forced into anything, therefore, we just offer to open the doors.
  • 22. 22 “LEGAL TALK” Through primary research, we discovered that certain millennials felt churchgoers were judgemental of non-churchgoers. In their minds, churchgoers had a certain stigma of seeming critical and uninviting. While this is something that UMC cannot necessarily control, we can tackle this obstacle by making the target audience feel important, understood and valued. The message is not age specific and can work universally with both primary and secondary audiences. The common tagline in these ads will resonate with anyone who feels like they are “too far gone.” Viewers will walk away feeling hopeful.
  • 26. 26 “JOKES ASIDE” Humor plays a very important role in millennials’ lives; therefore, we want to speak their language in order to better attract them. “Jokes Aside” is a concept that addresses the issue of millennials perceiving church to be dull. Our idea challenges that notion, without having to change anything about the church. We want United Methodist Church to be relatable and approachable. The idea is simple. Grab their attention by calling them out, and then present them with a benefit and a call-to-action by using humor to our advantage. Beneath the humor lies a rich layer of social commentary about things that most millennials can relate to. It’s almost as if we are holding up a mirror and having them confront realities that they can identify with- and hopefully laugh about!
  • 28. 28 CONCEPT 3: “MY KIND OF CHURCH”
  • 30. 30 “MY KIND OF CHURCH” “My Kind of Church” is a campaign that targets millennials that are interested in volunteering yet see church as being inconvenient, time consuming and lacks community. Therefore, they are leaning towards other resources for volunteerism. Based on this insight, we decided on a campaign that shows millennials that church doesn’t just happen on Sundays but whenever there is an opportunity to help. “My Kind of Church” showcases how UMC places primary emphasis on putting faith and love into action. Each image in these ads represents community and a specific benefit that the target audience can achieve. Ultimately, the goal is not to change the United Methodist Church, but rather change the way the millennials think about the church. “My Kind of Church” shows them exactly how UMC can make a difference in their lives.
  • 32. 32 MEDIA OBJECTIVES PROBLEMS The United Methodist Church is not communicating their ideals in a way that is relevant to millennials, leading to a disconnect. OBJECTIVES To establish that the United Methodist Church is relevant to what millennials value. This will be done by making an emotional connection with millennials where they already spend time communicating with each other. STRATEGY Our media strategy is to approach millennials on digital platforms that they frequently use and in physical locations that will break through the clutter of the advertising they see every day. For our digital ads, we chose to place them on light-hearted websites that millennials visit frequently. These included: Buzzfeed, LinkedIn, Facebook, Spotify and Pandora.
  • 33. 33 SECTION 12 The largest part of the the budget is placed within Buzzfeed because their audience is exactly our target demographic. Instead of choosing a more serious news outlet such as CNN or USA Today, we chose to place our ads in a more light hearted social news and entertainment environment to match the message of our ads. Buzzfeed is so impactful because 75% of their traffic is from social referrals. This is important in reaching millennials because they are a generation who are much more likely to click something if one of their friends posted it. Similarly, Elite Daily offers the same demographic reach skewed more towards females. The next largest chunk of the budget was spent on LinkedIn and Facebook. As mentioned previously, we want to reach millennials who are possibly transitioning through life stages such graduating college and finding their first career, for example. LinkedIn is becoming the go-to place to search for job and connect with professional contacts, which makes it the perfect place to serve and ad which suggests another type of change. Facebook, on the other hand, offers great customization options in terms of targeting an audience and specifying certain demographics and psychographics we want to reach with our ads. Lastly in our digital strategy, we have chosen to target our audience on Spotify and Pandora. Millennials are the largest and most engaged audience on Pandora and Spotify. Specifically, Pandora reaches 54% of the entire millennial digital audience. This number, along with the easy personalization of ads on Spotify and Pandora will allow us to tap into the passion point of music which is proven way to tune into Millennials. To round out our campaign, we have also chosen a two month run on a test market billboard because millennials are a generation on the move. They are constantly commuting and exploring the cities within which they live. In addition to the great deal of creativity a billboard allows, out of home is one of the most memorable media, second only to TV.
  • 34. 34 WEBSITE The proposed website is a “responsive website,” which means that it responds and adapts depending upon the layout of the specific device. We have also freshened up the images and overall style of the site, making it appeal to millennials. HOMEPAGE: Millennials like to use websites as their primary source of information. We have added features with the sole purpose of making this website more engaging and information rich for our Millennial targets. “What to Expect” is a feature that displays a quick video showing what it would be like to attend a church service. Another feature, “Volunteer Opportunities,” uses location tracking technology to find filtered opportunities nearest to you.
  • 35. 35 SECTION 13 VOLUNTEER: We have designed the landing page as a place for visitors that have engaged with our ads. We believe that having landing pages will increase our engagement with our target if they answer the call to action promoted by our ads. Here, they can find ways to volunteer, both physically and virtually. We promote opportunities for online volunteerism such as donating, engaging in social campaigns, and even recruiting team members for your own cause. Now, it will be difficult for millennials to say “I don’t have time to volunteer.” We have designed a landing page where traffic will be sent specifically to prompt a certain action, in our case, it will inform our target of volunteering opportunities at UMC. Landing pages are great advertising and marketing tools because they help measure the effectiveness of campaigns with the use of analytics, Adsense, and built-in plugins.

  • 40. 40 CAMPAIGN EVALUATION Our campaign is designed to open a dialogue between the United Methodist Church and the millennial generation. It is being done in a lighthearted way that resonates with millennial values and interests. By connecting with millennials instead of lecturing them, a relationship can be built where millennials will share what the church has to offer. Through our research, we found that most millennials had gone to church growing up, but for various reasons, stopped going as they got older. However, this isn’t to say they are a heathen generation; they simply feel that they can be spiritual without going to church. Millennials do want to be a part of something bigger than just themselves though. This idea lead us to focus on reducing the psychological barriers millennials face going to church, and showing them that the church understands who they are as a generation.
