OAKLAND — Houses of worship are turning to a new marketing tool in an effort to build church membership and give congregations a way to express their beliefs.
Avunda Ambers, a 39-year-old entrepreneur, has been busy selling "Faith Frames" — attractive plastic bordering for vehicle license plates. The name of a church appears across the bottom, and the motorist can select a few spiritual words for the top of the frame, such as "Jesus Saves Souls."
The frames come in various colors with bold lettering in chrome or brass.
Personalized frames are not new. Colleges sell alumni frames and Oakland Raiders fans often have Raider Nation frames on their vehicles.
Now, Ambers and pastors are tapping into church members who are equally passionate.
"I think it’s a great way to spread the good news about churches," said the Rev. John Cooper of Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church. "We can win souls."
Anita Ray, who attends services at First Morning Star Baptist Church, sees a fair amount of traffic as a bus driver for AC Transit. "(Faith Frames) get your attention. It makes you aware of churches, and that’s really needed today." [Source]
Here are some Faith Frames that I would like to see.
