My church in the past few years has established a procedure when some one responds to the invitation they are immediately taken to a conference room for consultation and counseling by a supposively trained counseler. Then usually in the evening service of that same day they are presented by video (overhead projector)to the congregation to vote on. This is true for both new believers and those transferring their letter. Sad to say most of those presented are not there at the time the vote is taken. Has anyone else experienced this in their church?
