G.U.I.D.E. TRAINING

GUIDE Keynote2ds.001

One of the most important things that we can do as a church is to be good stewards of the guests that God sends to us. I was recently privileged to lead a “Guests Experience” seminar at Apostolic Faith Tabernacle in Ferndale, Michigan pastored by Rev. David McCool. Below is the outline that I used with their team. The quotes and a lot of the ideas came from Nelson Searcy’s great book, “Fusion: Turning First-Time Guests into Fully-Engaged Members of Your Church.” The acroymn “G.U.I.D.E.” is original with me. Feel free to use what you can.

THE “PURPOSE” FOR A
GREAT GUEST EXPERIENCE

Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

  • “If you fail to prepare, than you prepare to fail.”
  • “The church is a family expecting Guests.” ~ Andy Stanley
  • “The more prepared a church is to receive guests, the more guests it receives.”
  • “In the first seven minutes of contact with your church, your first-time guests will 
know whether or not they are coming back.”
  • “Deliver your vision plus one percent” ~ Raving Fan
  • “Consistency is critical. Consistency creates credibility.”

THE “PROCESS” FOR A
GREAT GUEST EXPERIENCE

G.REET WITH A SMILE

  • “We can pick a smile from 30 feet away. A smile lets us know that we are going to get a positive reception and its hard not to reciprocate.” 
  • Welcome people in the parking lot and at the front door

U.NVIEL THE BUILDING

  • “The condition of your building, your sign, your grass and your parking lot all speak to guests.”
  • Give guests a tour around the building (ie. restrooms, classrooms, etc.)

I.NTRODUCE

  • “Food is our common ground for a universal experience.”
  • Bring guests to the café for coffee & a bagel
  • Introduce them to another AFT member
  • Introduce them to Pastor and or Sis. McCool

D.IRECT THEM TO THEIR SEAT

  • Ask Guest if they are visiting with an AFT family member
  • If so seat them by their family or friend, If not, invite them to sit with you

E.XCHANGE INFORMATION

  • Invite guests to fill out their information on the iPad using Faith Metrics Church Guest Check-in Tool.
  • After guests fill out their information, exchange the iPad for their welcome gift.

Give them their guest pack (Explain it to them)

  • 1) An AFT mug
  • 2) a Bible Study
  • 3) Calendar & newsletter
  • 4) Candy packets

 Lanyard
