Update on the site: Over the last few months we’ve been having all sorts of errors and wonky things happening with the site. So last week we changed the server. You’ll probably notice how much faster the site’s running now. I’m pretty happy about that.
But also, some of the issue we’ve been having was with the submission form. If you never got an email back from us after submitting a design to the site, there’s a good chance we never received it. But good news, we’ve fixed the form. You can now submit a design and we’ll actually get it.
So if you’ve been sitting on a design you want to see on the site, send it our way. We need some great designs to post to the site. I appreciate everyone’s patience as we’ve been getting this all fixed up and working well.
Walking into a church for the first time can be scary. Are you making your first-time guests feel welcome? Or are you driving them away—unintentionally—with bad signage, reserved seating, clunky communication and more?
In this new book from Jonathan Malm, Unwelcome examines 50 ways churches make first-time visitors feel unwelcome. The transgressions range from insider lingo to awkward transitions, a cold congregation to the over-eager greeter.
With all 50 church faux pas, Jonathan suggests ways to not only fix the problem, but also infuse excellence into the situation so churches can put their best foot forward with first-time guests. A few simple changes can help your church roll out the welcome mat for your guests.
What a great idea for a book! When I began reading Unwelcome, my first reaction was to begin counting how many copies I would need for the pastors and staff I work with. I’m excited about sharing and discussing this book with them.
