Oklahoma Conference of the United Methodist Church

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
