This toolkit of intentional and compassionate strategies takes an encouraging, incremental approach to help even small groups get started quickly. Study the separate chapters on: Imaginative Marketing, The Ministry of Greeting, Crafting Welcoming Materials, Tracking and Involving Newcomers, and Structuring Groups for Growth. Then adapt an additional 34 pages of template forms, brochures, and procedures to your needs while employing Weeks’ point-by-point recommendations to:
- make sure your signs and property invite, not confuse;
- create powerful, welcoming ads and print communication;
- train and prepare greeters;
- develop programs to incorporate and track newcomers during their critical first months.
