When it comes to interacting with guests and new attendees, churches typically gravitate toward one of two camps: shock and awe or unfortunate afterthought. On one extreme, a zeal to welcome guests inadvertently makes people the center of the universe. At the other, hospitality and a friendly welcome is effectively ignored in deference to the “serious business” of worship.
People Are the Mission proposes a healthy middle between these two extremes, one where guests are esteemed but the gospel is the goal. Danny Franks, Pastor of Guest Services at The Summit Church, shows churches how to take a more balanced approach: ministries that are guest-friendly from the outset and gospel-centric to their core. Danny shows not only how to effectively bring people in and convince them to stay, but also why our hospitality to honor the stranger doesn’t stand in opposition to honoring the Savior.
