Do your church visitors come back a second time?
It's that time of year where new members of church welcoming committees are coming on board.
It's also that time of year where people are living out their New Year commitments to start attending church and seeking a relationships with God.
Your Church hospitality teams are busy preparing for the new influx of church visitors who will make their way to your church this season.
Are your church hospitality ministries up to speed, ready to serve those first time church visitors who come this time of year?
Now is the time to
- Review your church hospitality systems to help guests easily get to their seat
- Recast new vision for welcoming the first time church visitor so that your congregation catches it.
- Improve your process of welcoming first time guests to help them make new friends
- Evaluate systems and fix what is broken so that you are not embarrassed.
- Look for new ideas to improve your current systems to make a bigger impact
- Help your church welcome new visitors this year.

“Fall 2010 has gone well. I believe the First Touch teams have a renewed sense of purpose and others are doing their part to apply the welcoming concepts they learned when you spoke here. I heard from many folks about how helpful and energizing it was to hear you speak.
Your talk helped us see the need to engage people, not just serve them. I think overall it was one of our most successful events ever, and was a real example of how the momentum is shifting in a positive way.” P Strachan, Midlothian VA.
Chris is a highly accessible speaker who brings a passion and energy to his workshops that is contagious.
