One key to invitation is the presence of … invitations. … The presence of a concrete invitation can help someone feel grounded and more in control…
While a good web presence is no substitute for invitational culture, it can certainly help. … There are more than a few people who will want to check out what it is that they are being invited to before coming.
One of the reasons that we invite people into the life of the church is that we hope they will discover that involvement in church inspires new life. … Follow up is best done with intentionality. … The church needs to provide an intentional way to ensure that guests are not taken for granted, but given care and attention after their first visit. - Rev. Dave Daubert, DMin, PhD
