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 all-new Guest Experience Boot Camp in Charlotte, NC.

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 all-new 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
  • 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 Cove Church in Mooresville, NC – a suburb just north of Charlotte, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, August 29-30. The Cove Church is a convenient drive from Charlotte Douglas Airport, and great access to local area hotels and restaurants.

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.

If someone wants entertainment they're going to the wrong place. Church is not a place for entertainment...or in my opinion a barrage of coffee and donuts. Why are churches today bringing the world INTO them? Then there's the thing with children...age appropriate??? These little guys can pick stuff up in service. Besides Jesus said Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Mt. 19:14.

I love the intentionality here as well as the challenge to look at the data. That's missing so many times. I would like to offer a contrarian's take. Church members and regular attenders have so many ways to get information: Announcements, bulletins, social channels, relationships, and email being among the options. But brand new people are likely going to check out the website and that's it. It might be wiser for churches with limited time and resources to focus their website almost exclusively to guests. This group of people isn't looking for a calendar of events but wants to know about regular programs. They probably aren't interested in watching all of the messages but instead may want to preview one of the services. For the times we need church members to go to websites (sign up for camp, join a group, etc), we're probably better off designing and promoting a specific page rather than cluttering up the homepage.
