When are a cyclist and a church alike? The cyclist goes nowhere without balance and momentum. Neither does a church. For the cyclist, the risk begins when he or she clips into the pedals. For a church, the risk comes with balancing attention toward existing members while generating momentum through reaching new people. But when the focus goes from the “functions” of hospitality to creating a culture of hospitality, a church’s growth will shift into high gear. Clip In examines what risking hospitality can do for your church, including sections on problems churches face when it comes to meeting new people and making them feel welcome, how to use key components of hospitality, as well as real-life, funny stories.
