This Church Greeter Training is worth the investment
A staple of church hospitality is a greeter ministry:
- Greeting people at the door,
- Greeting people at a welcome center
- Greeting people during the worship service.
- Greeting people after the service is over, or between morning services.
A lot of churches think that greeting happens automatically.
But we all know that it doesn’t.
In fact, we all know that greeter enthusiasm comes and goes in waves. You build them up, but after a few months, the system gets disorganized and lazy again. Greeters stop showing up and they forget the importance of their role in the church hospitality system. You loose track of who are greeters in your church.
Your church greeters are one of the most important experiences for first time visitors. You may want to organize a greeter ministry and are not sure where to begin.
Don’t believe me?
Church Greeters play an important role in your hospitality ministry, but some need some training.

Some Comments I’ve Received on Church Greeter Training:
Thanks, it has been refreshing and encouraging
I truly enjoyed this training and I now know my shortfalls as a greeter.
Thank you, Very informative

Thank you very much….helpful re. small talk and reminder of boundaries,etc.
Good info…thanks for the webinar
It was helpful. Obviously somewhat limited in scope but a good refresher. Plan to send the link to our entire team.
Very useful. Thanks
Thank you! Very informative! God Bless You!
I thought the session on Thursday night was very helpful for some of my welcoming committee folks – not that they haven’t heard all of that from me, but you know how parishioners hear things differently from “experts”.
Thanks for the training session. You did a great job talking about a subject that does have great importance in helping welcome people to a new church….It helped me evaluate the way I greet newcomers and gave me food for thought.
I enjoyed the webinar. I have read lots of your material and am developing a file of material on assimilation. A lot of the material in your webinar I had of course already read since it was addressing new greeters. Several of my assimilation team members viewed it and thought it was really good. I look forward to more advanced information in the future.
