Church of the Resurrection Offers Conference on Hospitality

January 08, 2020
The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection will host The Art of Hospitality Conference April 23 – 24, 2020.
The conference takes place at Church of the Resurrection’s Leawood, KS Campus and focuses on the ministry of welcome and intentional hospitality. Participants will learn key principles and methods key to becoming an outwardly focused church, including: attracting visitors, effective follow-up and volunteer training.
Featured Speakers, Executive Director Debi Nixon and Senior Director Yvonne Gentile, co-authors of The Art of Hospitality (released by Abingdon Press Spring 2020), will lead participants through the program, complete with techniques and strategic planning to help churches apply the concepts to their ministry context. The Art of Hospitality will effectively change how churches do church, leaving guests surprised, delighted, and eager to return.

Pastors, staff and volunteers engaged in the ministry of welcome, hospitality, visitor care, outreach, connections or membership are all encouraged to attend.
One of last year’s attendees, Bev Tarpley from Sun Lakes, AZ gave this endorsement for The Art of Hospitality: “This conference [gave] me and my colleagues so much information to bring back to enhance our processes. Thank you for sharing your expertise with all of us. Every single person working the seminars was a shining example of what radical hospitality looks like. What a great way for us to learn. You have helped us grow in our work here in Arizona.”
