The Come Back Effect
How Hospitality Can Compel Your Church’s Guests to Return
WHO: Jason Young, director of guest services at Buckhead Church and North Point Ministries, and Jonathan Malm, who runs SundaySocial.tv and ChurchStageDesignIdeas.com.
THEY SAY: “No matter how over-the-top your service, if it doesn’t connect with the emotions of the guest, it isn’t hospitality. Hospitality is about the feeling.”
THE BIG IDEA: This book provides church and ministry leaders with practical ideas and valuable approaches to creating a ministry driven by hospitality.
Divided into 10 chapters, this book offers straightforward steps churches can take to create an environment so hospitable that guests will feel compelled to return.
Some of these ideas include creating a culture not a job title, being fully present, choosing values over policies and knowing the guest. Each chapter ends with a list of key points and takeaways.
