Over 6 years of teaching on church greeters, I’ve assembled many church greeter resources of my own.
Here is a quick list of how to get it all and where to find it.
For Leaders of Church Greeters
I’ve written a book for leaders of church greeter ministry.
Click on these links to read more (at Amazon).
One reviewer writes:
Church Greeters 101 lifts into clear view all those things that the average person has experienced but hasn’t necessarily put into words as they’ve been greeted (or not) from church to church.
Chris Walker provides an excellent, real-life resource for evaluating a ministry of welcome. The content is extremely practical, with helpful suggestions at the end of each chapter.
The book is easy to read and will be a help to all churches, whether thinking about getting started in this area or wanting to review their well-established ministry.
Video Training Material for Greeters
Up to this point, I’ve prepared two webinars available for church greeters. The most popular segments in these videos are:
- Conversational Small Talk for Nervous Greeters
- How to identify a church visitor.
They come in different formats for you: download or DVD, individual or as a set.

These videos will come over the next 20 days via email. It may seem like a lot of email at once, but it’ll slow down after the 10th email. You can watch these videos on your own time.
