Item description for Beyond the First Visit: The Complete Guide to Connecting Guests to Your Church by Gary L. McIntosh...

This practical book offers sound advice on assessing and improving the ways in which churches attract people, welcome them, do follow-up, and bring them into the church family.

Publishers Description
All churches like to think that theirs is the friendliest in town. But do visitors see it that way? Church consultant Gary McIntosh invites readers to take a look at their church through the eyes of visitors and potential visitors. His starting point, grounded in an understanding of God as a "welcomer," is that churches should see those who enter their doors as not merely visitors, but as guests, and themselves as gracious hosts. This practical book offers sound advice on assessing and improving the ways in which churches attract people, welcome them, do follow-up, and bring them into the church family. It also offers suggestions for making a welcoming attitude part of the very fabric of the local church.

Reviews - What do customers think about Beyond the First Visit?

Worth the read  Nov 9, 2006
He has several, practical steps for making your church more hospitable. From the 10 foot rule, to the 5 minute rule, to such advice as "Recruit for attitude, Train for people for skills," it was worth the purchase.
To be inclusive, we must first ask, who do we exclude?  Oct 16, 2006
Dr. Gary McIntosh has a passion for people finding their way into and being adopted by faith communities.

As the Church transitions from modernity (with its catechetical mentality of people needing to know what they believe and how to behave before they can belong) to postmodernity (where people often want to belong before they believe), Beyond the First Visit is a guidebook for the shifts that congregations need to make to help people feel a part instead of being left apart.

How churches invite, greet, incorporate and train their people matters. This is a wonderful text on all fronts.
