In Church Greeters 101, I intentionally focus on recruiting and training church greeters and ushers: the volunteer side of your church’s hospitality ministry.
This book is intended as a manual and reference for greeter coordinators, hospitality committees, and greeter volunteers.
I’ve provided appendices to print out and use for training material.
This particular text does not go into
- marketing to get visitors,
- general first impressions ministry, and
- assimilation strategies.
My other eBook (PDF Download only), which is found at http://www.WelcomeChurchVisitors.com, focuses more on the big picture of hospitality ministries–creating a good first impression (presentation of the building, the visitor experience and wow factor).
It has one small chapter on greeters. Church Greeters 101 now elaborates more in depth about these important volunteers.
This information has developed and refined after years of reading, research and conversation with many church pastors and hospitality committees around the United States and some in Latin America.
This material also reflects the cross cultural work I do in Latin America and Spanish language churches. As I experience church in two very different cultures, I see differences that often provide insights into why we do things that we do.
