Online training examines modern hospitality
Church of the Resurrection’s ShareChurch Ministry will host an online training session entitled The Art of Hospitality from 10:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. on April 22. The training’s featured speakers are Yvonne Gentile and Debi Nixon, authors of the book “The Art of Hospitality: A Practical Guide for a Ministry of Radical Welcome.”
The Art of Hospitality is designed to equip church leaders to make everyone feel welcome and included, from first time visitors to deeply engaged members – in person or online. Whether a church is open or worshiping 100% online, this training will help participants to re-imagine church in a new "hybrid" world. The principles of radical hospitality remain the same, even amidst contextual and practical changes.
During the conference, participants will:
- Be reminded that the church’s demonstration of hospitality is at its best when members are outwardly focused
- Examine the principles of radical hospitality in this new reality
- Explore the power of having an effective digital front door and online worship experience
- Share ideas on ways to equip the congregation for new hospitality practices
All participants will receive a copy of The Art of Hospitality, published by Abingdon Press. Participants are encouraged to read the book in preparation for the training.
Cost of the training session is $49, which includes a copy of The Art of Hospitality. More details and registration are available at: https://sharechurch.com/event/art-of-hospitality-conference-2021.
