As many of us are recovering from the busy holiday season and the New Year, it is time to draw our attention to what our ministry means and how we can give it purpose. Surely God did not put you into ministry just to prepare delicious food, but to touch lives in the name of Jesus. We have a simple campaign that will put purpose into your ministry called: Luvin from the Oven.

It's always a good idea to start planning for your winter holiday promotions as early as the end of summer. The more time to you allow yourself to prepare, the more smoothly and efficiently your holiday season will run.
The key to a successful holiday season is to be ready and prepared. Ensure that you have all your marketing materials in place, your staff ready to go, and all the items you need ordered. Diane Chiasson, FCSI, President of Chiasson Consultants Inc., a restaurant and foodservice consultancy firm in Toronto offers some tips to get you started on your holiday plans:
1. Start designing and drafting your advertising:
Get your chefs to start planning the special holiday menus, and put together a catering menu as well. Have your graphic designers prepare an early draft in digital format that you can easily edit or revise if the need arises later on. Many large companies begin planning for their holiday party as early as September, so you always want to have something on hand to show them.
