Upgrade Your Church's Hospitality - Kent Island MD
Thursday, August 2, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
Do your church visitors come back a second time?
Here in July, it is the summer slump in programming for churches.
Most churches slow down their programming during these months and prepare themselves for a fall launch of a new sermon series and launch of many new programs.
Now is the time to
- Review your church hospitality systems
- Recast new vision for welcoming the first time church visitor.
- Improve the process of welcoming first time guests
- Evaluate systems and fix what is broken.
- Look for new ideas to improve your current systems.
- Help your church welcome new visitors this fall.
All as you prepare your fall activities to launch your new programming.
Prepare your teams for the September welcome.
In this 2 hour workshop, among other things you'll learn:
- How welcoming guests helps your church fulfill or fail the great commission.
- What you need to know about your guests before they arrive so you can serve them well
- No manuals necessary – how to have awesome hospitality ministry in unforeseen moments
- 8 necessary traits of a church hospitality volunteer who blesses your guests
Every now and then, church hospitality teams need Rev. Chris Walker of EvangelismCoach.org to lead your team in a time of vision casting for your church's hospitality ministry.
Join us August 2, 2012 for a free workshop for your church hospitality and welcome teams, at Kent Island United Methodist Church, where Chris Walker, of http://www.EvangelismCoach.org, is the featured speaker.
He is fittingly known as Evangelism Coach because of his extensive work with churches in the US and Latin America in the areas of evangelism and church growth. Chris is an ordained pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA). His website has over 900 articles on personal evangelism, congregational evangelism, and hospitality, as well as a podcast feed, all for free.
He's written two ebooks, and recorded 2 CDs on church hospitality issues, authored 1 DVD for training greeters, and a 3 DVD set on Breaking Unseen Barriers that keep your visitors from coming back.
I feel rejuvenated in learning to pray after the Salvation Army Quest ministry workshops in Michigan.
Chris is very passionate and on fire for what he speaks about. Keep up the good work!
Muskegon Corps, Salvation Army
