The conference takes place at Church of the Resurrection’s Leawood, KS Campus and focuses on the ministry of welcome and intentional hospitality. Participants will learn key principles and methods key to becoming an outwardly focused church, including: attracting visitors, effective follow-up and volunteer training.
Featured Speakers, Executive Director Debi Nixon and Senior Director Yvonne Gentile, co-authors of The Art of Hospitality (released by Abingdon Press Spring 2020), will lead participants through the program, complete with techniques and strategic planning to help churches apply the concepts to their ministry context. The Art of Hospitality will effectively change how churches do church, leaving guests surprised, delighted, and eager to return.
Pastors, staff and volunteers engaged in the ministry of welcome, hospitality, visitor care, outreach, connections or membership are all encouraged to attend.
