2020 Workshop

Christian Education: How to Get Guests to Return

3/6/2020 3:00 - 4:15 p.m. Room: D8

The way we treat our guests on Sunday morning determines whether or not they'll return and become our next new members. The relations, or connections, we build with our guests become the Velcro that helps them stick around! This session provides practical and workable methods for creating relationships with our guests, insuring they'll stick around and return!
