Get your FREE download of The How to Make a Great First-Time Guest Impression E-Book by Nelson Searcy – all about turning first time guests into fully-developed members of your church.
Seven minutes is all the time you have to make a positive first impression on the first-time guests who walk through your doors. In the first seven minutes of their experience with your church, your guests will decide whether or not they’re going to come back.
When God entrusts you with first-time guests, you face an incredible responsibility. Creating an environment that makes your first-time guests feel both welcomed and respected is key to winning a return visit and beginning the process of assimilating them well. In this brand new e-book, you will learn exactly what goes into an impactful pre-service – and you’ll see how seven minutes is all you need to show your guests just how much you care about them and want them back!
I’ve seen these effects in hundreds of churches over the years, and they’ve led me to learn everything I can about effective and God-honoring staffing, to be a good steward of the opportunity I have in leading my staff.
In this 25-page PDF E-Book, you will learn:
- How to examine your pre-service experience from the perspective of your first-time guests
- The critical four-step, pre-service process to influence your guests: Greeted, Directed, Treated and Seated
- The one quality you should seek in all your pre-service volunteers
- What “raving fan” service is and what you can learn from the business side of customer service
- How to overcome the skepticism you will face from first-time guests
- And much more!
