Summer is the perfect time to put a hospitality plan in place.

Henry Brinton's book "The Welcoming Congregation: Roots and Fruits of Christian Hospitality" blends the “how to” and the “why to” of Christian hospitality, presents the best practices of welcoming congregations across the theological spectrum, and offers concrete action plans for congregations. 



Churches that want to embrace all people begin with the creation of welcoming sites, worship, meals, and small groups then enjoy the fruits of reconciliation, outreach, and new perceptions of God’s inclusive love. Discover the biblical basis for Christian hospitality and how it is practiced in welcoming congregations today.

Participants will gain:

  • An understanding of why welcoming is so difficult today

  • An overview of best practices of hospitable congregations in the US and abroad

  • Knowledge of the roots of Christian hospitality: welcoming sites, worship, meals, and small groups

  • Appreciation for the fruits of hospitality: reconciliation, outreach, and new perceptions of God’s inclusive love

  • Action plans for your congregation, to help you do a better job of welcoming guests
