First Impressions Team

According to church leadership experts, first-time guests to a church decide whether or not they will return within 7 minutes of pulling into the parking lot. For many of our guests this means that no part of our Sunday worship service will make it into their consideration. Because of this, our guests have an unconscious need for the church to put its “best foot forward”, to convince them that we are thrilled to have them as our guest, and to show that we are not intrinsically focused, but that we care for the community around us. The First Impressions team fulfills this need by providing first class hospitality, especially to the church’s first-time guests.
