Guest Services

Engage Guests and Train Your Team

Let's be honest: Every time a guest doesn't return to your church, it cuts you. It cuts you deep. After this happens, you probably wonder what went wrong. Upon their arrival, most people will decide within 7-10 minutes whether or not they will return to your church. In order to stop the "one and done" trend with visitors, you need to engage and connect with them starting the moment they arrive.

 

The Guest Services Course will help you close the back door to your church. Do you have visitors who come once and never return? Do you have enough trained volunteers to welcome guests when they walk in the door? This course can help you turn those guests into committed members while simultaneously encouraging your current members to get involved.

 

This course will prepare your volunteers and team members to greet, interact and follow up with guests while building a church wide culture of hospitality. If you have an angry volunteer, this course can teach you how to diffuse and fix the situation. Explore the different modules and then start the journey of learning today.

 

These 12 modules are designed to help you:

  • Ensure that newcomers have the opportunity to become committed members

  • Develop an understanding of how to solve difficult situations

  • Be able to spot first time guests easily

  • Close the back door

 

This course includes 12 enhanced modules, 3.5 hours of HD video, and 60+ handouts. And it's all yours to keep and revisit for as long as you need it.

The first three modules are free. If you like what you see, then you'll love the additional depth and insight in the remaining 9 modules. You won’t find this collection of wisdom, knowledge, and advice from anywhere else so don't miss this opportunity to learn from a real practitioner and thought leader in the guest services community.

"Guest Services is one of the most important areas to get right as a church, whether you are a new church plant or an established church. This course not only sets a foundation for the importance of guest services, it moves right into practical application. There were multiple action steps I could take right away to help improve our Guest Services area as we prepare for launch. This is a must watch course!"
