I was recently asked to organize our almost nonexistent hospitality team at church. I was honored to be asked but honestly not sure where to start.
I mean you just say hello to people right?!?
Who knew there was so much more to what a greeting team actually does! Thank you so much for this book and the wonderful information and insight it has given me. I’m excited to do this ministry for our Lord!
Written for Leaders of Church Hospitality
Church Greeter 101 was written for the leaders of a church welcome ministry. I want to lead you forward in starting or relaunching the greeter ministry of your church by covering such topics as:
- how to recruit church greeters,
- ideas to train church greeters, and
- ways to cast the vision for ongoing hospitality ministry.
- You’ve been asked to recruit greeters for your church greeting ministry.
- You’ve been asked to organize your church greeters, but aren’t quite sure where to start.
- You’ve been asked to train your current greeters but can’t find any adequate training material available.
Maybe you are not sure of any of the requirements to be a church greeter and are asking. . .
Where do I begin?
Not Just for Small Church Greeter Ministry
If there is a common thread running through the 10 reviews (to date) on Church Greeters 101, is that this book on greeting ministry is:
- Helpful in preparing a training.
For example, I talked with a head hospitality coordinator for a large church in Pennsylvania. I had always aimed this book at smaller churches that were just getting started, but this leader applied Church Greeters 101 to a non-organized ministry of welcome in the large church where he serves.
As we talked, here is what he shared about how Church Greeters 101 shaped his role as leader of the church hospitality ministry:
“I started out as a volunteer, then became an usher, then head usher, and now 2 years later, I lead the entire hospitality department of our church, over seeing a few hundred volunteers.
I love this work.
Thanks to your material in Church Greeters 101 and How to Welcome Church Visitors, you’ve helped us take our hospitality to a whole new level. I’ve used your material to provide local training in other churches as well. Thanks for organizing this teaching in a usable format and manner that is transferable and useful.”

I know that many of you have read the electronic version of Church Greeters 101 before I turned it into a paperback and e-reader version in June of 2013.
