Make This Fall Your Most Welcoming Ever!

Summer is here. And before you know it, school will be starting again.
Great leaders know that right now is the time to prepare for a strong Fall, especially when it comes to your church’s first impressions.

Will you be ready to welcome First Time Guests this fall?

Here’s something that will help: Two days of training and preparation at Auxano’s Guest Experience Boot Camp in Detroit, MI.

Introducing Auxano’s Guest Experience Boot Camp:

First Time Guests coming to your church will decide to come back or not in the first 11 minutes. And that timer doesn’t start in worship… it starts as they make multiple decisions approaching your campus, pulling into the parking lot, and entering your building.

What will your First Time Guests experience in their first 11 minutes?

Based on over 500 onsite Guest Perspective evaluations with churches of every size and tribe, Auxano’s Guest Experience Boot Camp exemplifies our biblical mandate to have a love for strangers – and create a culture of hospitality!

This 2-Day Boot Camp will include:

  • Immersive and interactive training with up to five team members
  • Guided learning around core leadership principles from Auxano’s Guest Experience Workbook
  • Development of a phased Guest Experience implementation plan integrated into your church context
  • Reproducible take-home training Tools for your entire Guest Experience team
  • Collaborative learning with dynamic churches from across the country
  • A 60-minute, one-on-one virtual coaching session to help implement your plan
  • Two virtual follow-up sessions with Boot Camp participants one and three months after the Boot Camp
  • Lunches and breaks throughout the Boot Camp

The Guest Experience Boot Camp will be held at the Orion Campus of Kensington Church, in Lake Orion – a suburb just north of Detroit from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 14-15.

The $1,995 investment includes registration for up to five members of your church team. Transportation to the host church, local lodging, and evening meals will be the responsibility of each church.

comment_post_ID); ?> I have found out more. I guess it's all about backing? ReNew doesn't have that. We are a mission church, in a small downtown area. We are a wonderful church though. I guess we also needed everyone to attend and possibly be of service all the time. If I could have it all over to again, I'd participate more, open my mouth more,....IDK, I still am holding onto God's intervention somehow. We have until Sept. 30th.

comment_post_ID); ?> We are experiencing our church closing at the end of the month. We are all heart broken and agree that this is the best church family we've ever had. I personally can say I am not used to my attendance weekly being so important. I have never been to a start up church. We needed 3 things, an associate pastor, everyone's involvement and money. I cannot believe that the best church for so many people is closing. Being g a forever optimist, I can't help but think God will intervene somehow.

comment_post_ID); ?> I agree with your 3 must-haves. I would add that the rectors have to call on every member who attends, at least once a year. The existence of a "calling commitee" is just an excuse to avoid making the effort. This is part of #3. If a rector does not like to call on parishioners, then she/he should not be a rector, but should find a different ministry.
