Getting new visitors to church can be hard. Keeping them can be even harder. Phil Cooke helps pastors understand the importance of first impressions in an 8 second culture.
Technology has dramatically changed the way we live. We live in an 8 second world where people are so distracted, they make decisions about people, churches and even pastors – within the first 4-8 seconds. For pastors, this means you must be intentional about training your teams and your people to create a culture of hospitality in your church.
This involves focus on every level, from the parking lot to the lobby and all the way to the sanctuary. You’ve got to capture a visitor’s attention in the first 8 seconds as they come onto your property! Getting their attention matters and can help pave the way for them to have a deeper experience with God. The stakes are too high to fail. – Phil Cooke
