First Impressions Volunteers

I’ve done an informal survey of my readers and the biggest challenge among those who answered is finding, training, and keeping volunteers for first impression ministries.

This class is for you if:

  • Want volunteers to own the vision of a great welcome
  • Want volunteers to take ownership of first impressions.
  • New to the role with ministry leaders on our hospitality team that have been serving as greeters and ushers longer than you’ve been alive
  • There is no one in charge.
  • Need help recruiting volunteers who want to help more than once or twice a year.
  • Wish your volunteers would quit dropping out.
  • Find ways to help newcomers connect and keep coming back.
  • Want to create a place that from the first moment a person walks through the door, they feel like they are a part of family.
  • Want to try and convince volunteers to change “We’ve always done it this way…”

Now is the time to

  • Think about finding volunteers.
  • Planning to train volunteers, both new ones and those that have been serving longer than you’ve been alive.
  • And keep those volunteers serving so you all can improve the process of welcoming first time guests.
  • Evaluate systems and fix what is broken.
  • Break through the idea that you are always short volunteers who won’t sign up.

This class if for you if you

  • Were recently appointed as leader of your hospitality ministry.
  • Want to recruit new volunteers.
  • Want to find ways to motivate and keep volunteers aiming for excellence.
  • Want to continually cast vision for excellence in first impression ministries.
  • Want to Change the mindset of persons are not very friendly to guests, even though friendly with each other.

The cost is an investment in retaining new families in your church membership.

I’ve helped other hospitality ministry leaders breakthrough that log-jam of inaction and set them moving forward again. They felt like they were staring into the fog and not seeing much of anything clearly.   The pastor and leadership committee needed someone outside of their situation to chase some clouds away.

You’ll get your creativity going as you think of ways to move forward with your hospitality ministry.

Don’t struggle on your own

You don’t have to struggle alone.  Make the investment in this webinar class, even if you

  • Lack personal experience
  • Feel uncomfortable
  • Don’t know where to start
  • Just getting started in hospitality ministry
  • Feel like your hospitality and welcome ministry are stuck.
  • Feel energized about future vision because you’ve come back from a conference

You don’t have to stay stuck. Together we can get you making progress towards helping your visitors feel good about their experience of your church.

Is this class right for you?

If you have a highly effective hospitality ministry, then this is not the right class.

If your welcome ministry is running at full steam and you feel like you’ve got a good grip on this ministry, then this is not the right class.

If you want some secret to hospitality ministry that you’ve never heard before, then this class isn’t likely good fit for you either.

However, if you want to lead your volunteers with greater skill and find, train and retain committed volunteers, this is for you.

I wanted to thank you again for a great conference.

All I have heard are good comments and ideas for future ones.  To God be the Glory! – L. Ruby, Pittsburgh
