One common church hospitality question that I’m asked is for a recommended reading list on books related to church hospitality.
I’ve compiled this based on the reading that I’ve done.
My Church Hospitality e-books:
1. Church Greeters 101
Church Greeters 101 is now available in paperback and for the kindle. You’ll learn about growing a greeting ministry from scratch:
- Training, and
- Keeping church greeters.
A big emphasis in this greeter book is on ongoing training of greeters and gives specific examples of greeter training meetings.
2. How to Welcome Church Visitors:
How to Welcome Church Visitors is a downloadable ebook.
This is my first ebook on Creating better first impressions.
It looks at the entire visitor experience of a first time Church Visitor. Your purchase will get you a free hour of consulting time with me about your hospitality ministry if you choose to claim it.
