Does your church struggle with reaching or keeping guests? Have your volunteers forgotten why they are showing up each week? Do you find yourself wrestling between wowing your community or simply making disciples?
If so, the Guest Services Workshop has been designed for you. This fast-paced, information-packed session will marry the why of guest services with the practical what and how of making it happen each week. Topics include:
Creating a guest-friendly culture
How to kill a toxic culture
Defining the vision for your guest services team
The Five Plumb Lines necessary to serve guests well
The Workshop has been designed with teams in mind, so load up the church van and bring your entire church staff or weekend volunteer team.

“This One-Day Workshop was exactly what I needed to rejuvenate my spirit and build up my resources in order to love the people in my church and community better. Somehow the team will magically cover everything you need to hear, all while making it personable and inspiring.” – Amanda Stanton, Director of Guest Services, Calvary Church, Clearwater, FL
"The workshop was full of practical information and steps that can be adapted to any church to enhance and strengthen the Connections Ministry. The team thought of everything and gave me steps I can put into action immediately." - David Poupard, Connections Pastor, Hibernia Baptist Church, Fleming Island, Florida
"The One-Day Guest Services Workshop was a team endeavor. To be able to bring pastors, staff and volunteers to an intimate event has set up our team for success. The Workshop certainly conveys the “what and how,” but more importantly conveys the “why?” behind an effective Guest Services mindset and execution. I’ve never been to an event that helped shape our thinking framework and equipped us with vision like this one has. It was more than worthwhile investment for our team to be a part!" – Dr. Matthew Robinson, Connections Pastor, First Baptist Church, Orlando, FL
