Hospitality takes many shapes and forms in our churches. It could be a warm conversation in your church's foyer, a women's teatime, or a dish of lasagna on someone's doorstep.
This 21-page resource gives practical advice for several of hospitality's many dimensions. Learn about how to follow up with visitors, the differences between women's and men's fellowship times, organizing a benevolence meal ministry, hosting missionaries, making small-group members comfortable, and more.
