Podcast Episode #374
Will Mancini joins us to discuss how churches can better connect with guests and mistakes they make that hurt those connections.
Some highlights from today’s episode include:
- A church’s first impressions can make an eternal impact on guests.
- It’s not uncommon for guests to make up 5-8% of a church’s weekly attendance.
- Guests are starting to decide whether or not to return to your church within the first 11 minutes on your campus.
- Guests typically talk about their initial experience with a church 8-15 times.
- Churches should use language for guests, not visitors.
