Church Hospitality Ministry Guide
Have you ever walked into a church and felt welcomed from the time you entered the building until the time you left? If so, chances are that the church had a strong hospitality ministry. That’s the way everyone should feel at any church they attend, but unfortunately, it doesn’t always happen. Many times, church members neglect to interact with visitors, and new people leave feeling unwelcome and left out, never to return—especially with the option for virtual services.
You need a church-hospitality plan to make people—visitors and members alike—feel loved and wanted. The size of your congregation doesn't matter. Vanco has prepared a hospitality guide to help attract new members and maintain current members.
In this free guide, you’ll learn exactly what church-hospitality ministry is, why it’s so important, how to create a solid church-hospitality plan, the roles and responsibilities of a hospitality committee, guidelines for running an existing hospitality ministry, and best practices and ideas to attract new members.

You can get the tried, true, and tested church-leadership strategies and techniques used by top ministries to build healthy and growing congregations.
When you download Vanco’s free ebook, you’ll learn what to avoid, how to set SMART goals, leadership-model structures to inspire your church-leadership strategy, how to recruit volunteers and delegate, how to handle challenging situations like disgruntled members or staff, how to be a good financial steward for your church, and much more!
