From Visitor to Disciple: Eight Ways Your Church Can Help

\"\"Most churches identify themselves as friendly communities. Yet the experience of a first-time visitor is often one of confusion, embarrassment and even alienation. John Bowen helps us think through the steps by which we can make that first visit a positive one, so that a visitor will feel confidence to return, to explore the reality of faith, and to move towards discipleship.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for making these booklets available online. Our parish is in transition at the moment looking for a new 2nd member of the clergy team and also realizing that a reassessment of the state of its ministry and resources is necessary. In conjunction with our Diocese’s “Back To Church Sunday” initiative, I believe this little booklet will provide a fruitful opportunity to get more conversation going.

    Practically speaking, it costs me about 1.10 to print a booklet on my laser printer, making it easily available to parishioners and extremely affordable! Thanks again.
