Webinar: Training Church Greeters Resources

Tonight I was asked by a guy in our church
to be a “Greeter” which means
I’d shake people’s hands as they come in.
(Twitter user)

Being a greeter is much more than shaking hands as people walk in the door of your church during worship services.

So many churches simply recruit warm bodies to fill the role of church greeter without much

  • thought,
  • training, or
  • planning

into the role that greeters have come to play in American churches.

Greeters are the front line of your church’s hospitality ministry.

They are a vital part of your organized friendliness that helps members and visitors connect.

But how do you train greeters?

(There are only so may ways to say “Good Morning”.)

What does a church greeter training meeting look like?

What resources might be available to help with recruiting and organizing greeters?

Author of The Work of the Greeter, Paige Lanier Chargois has found some insights from her research and experience across the United states and 47 different countries.

Thank you for providing this valuable service. I attend a smaller church and there were several points that we will be able to work on for an improved more complete welcome to those who are seeking to worship together with their brothers and sisters. Thank you. I look forward to going over the presentation power point with our group next.
