I Can’t Get In

Over at, I’ve released video Number Churches that are closed and don't let people in3.

In today’s video, I address one of the biggest barriers that churches put up to visitors who do come back for several weeks in a row.

I once  attended a local fellowship for nearly 6 months and still had no friends.   It was a fellowship with about 100 people at the service we attended.

In fact, not one person made an effort to talk with us.  This church had all the right hospitality systems:

  • Visitor Table
  • Contact Cards
  • Ushers
  • Greeters

They were doing all the right things, but there was not a single person who said hello to us.  Even the pastor remained a stranger to us during this time.

That’s unacceptable.

Today I’m releasing video #3 at

It’s called “Can’t Get in!”

I give some lessons I’ve learned as a result of this, and two ways that I’ve seen churches try to address it.

The fourth video will be out in a few days.

You should be able to straight to the video by clicking the link.  If you can’t get it, simply provide your email address, click on the confirmation link and you’ll get the most current video.

These videos will be up only for a short time, so be sure to get them.  They run about 10 minutes each.

    Hi Chris,
    I have enjoyed your introductory and first video very much, however the next 2 have had only audio come through. I have tried all the links multiple times but to no avail. Any fixes you could send my way would be greatly appreciated. We are starting a Hospitality/greeter system in our church soon.

    Thanks and God bless your efforts,

  2. I’m not sure what to do about that. . The videos are encoded in HTML5 and stream. What software are you using? Windows, Mac?
