For many churches, we know we’re supposed to reach and evangelize our communities, but the people… they’re so…. Different! It feels like we have nothing in common with them. While evangelizing in today’s very sensitive and contentious society can be intimidating, we can’t let that stop us from obeying God.
We don’t have to tell you that volunteers are the lifeblood of the church. Our ministries wouldn’t be nearly as effective without those volunteers that give selflessly of their time and talents for the higher purpose of reaching hearts for Jesus. And those volunteers in Guest Ministry are of particular importance. The guest experience truly makes the difference between a guest that is turned into a passionate follower of Christ and a guest that is turned off to Jesus altogether, and that experience begins with your Guest Ministry volunteers. So how are we to ensure that those volunteers are equipped to deliver a great guest experience—one where guests genuinely feel the love of Jesus through them?
