Andy Hobbs and David Allen
How can your church be more loving to newcomers? How do you do welcoming well? What are the strategies for best connection? Not so much the arrival on the first visit, but what is best practice to see people journey from that first visit to becoming a fully integrated member of your church - so that they are still with you 12 months later? How do you triage people? Then what resources/energy do you spend ministering to different people? How do you work out how not to put too much energy into people who will never come back? Andy Hobbs from Salt Church Wollongong and David Allen from Hunter Bible Church and Unichurch, Newcastle in Newcastle have both thought lots about these questions.
