First impressions matter. Research shows that guests who attend worship services for the first time make their decision about whether or not to return in the first 10 minutes. Other research shows it’s even less time than that!
What does that tell us? Hospitality, which is what we’re talking about, is important – and it isn’t just about the front-door welcome. Hospitality matters to long-time members as well as first-time attendees. To feel truly welcome, we all need to know that there is a place for us.
Conference Director of Congregational Development Rev. Rick McKinley will lead this four-part webinar designed to help your congregation take the next steps in developing a vital, life-giving ministry of hospitality.
Weekly one-hour sessions are 11 a.m. Fridays from Feb. 26 to March 18, 2016.
