How do you influence an ever-expanding diversity of people, engage high-capacity leaders, and unleash your church or organization’s full potential?

It’s the question every great leader asks himself or herself. Building a hospitable culture can make or break an organization, and it doesn’t happen on accident. It takes a plan, hard work, and we would suggest, an invitation. We call this comprehensive approach Hospitable Leadership, and it’s proven to be transformational, relational, and results-oriented.

For the last 27 years, The Life Christian Church (a growing & diverse church in the NYC metropolitan area) has been on a journey to create environments of welcome. We’ve seen revolutionary results, and we can help you learn how to do this, too. Once you learn to practice Hospitable Leadership, you will see your ability to impact your sphere of influence multiply exponentially. What was true 2,000 years ago is still true today: When people feel genuinely welcome, they will give you the opportunity to lead them.

Using the “5 Welcomes” from Pastor Terry Smith’s book, The Hospitable Leader, as our guide, we will offer you the tools for creating environments where people and dreams flourish.

 The Hospitable Leader Experience is curated, collaborative, and immersive.

 The Five Welcomes of Hospitable Leadership

HOME

Learn to create environments – like Jesus did – where people’s hearts are warm and more open to being influenced to true, good, and beautiful things.

STRANGERS

Explore the need, and exponential power, of welcoming strangers. These are people who are strange to you in some way, and to whom you seem strange. When we welcome strangers, we can multiply our influence through an ever-expanding diversity of people.

DREAMS

Model being hospitable to the dreams of those you lead while also inviting them to engage in the mission of the Church and to help actualize God’s dreams for the world.

COMMUNICATION

Hospitable leaders are hospitable communicators. Like Jesus, our words are full of grace and truth and ultimately bring transformative results.

FEASTS

Jesus came to fulfill the most important mission in the history of the world, yet He said that He came “enjoying life.” Discover how leaders must learn to feast in the context of a life of purpose and how their leadership effort can feel like a feast to their followers.

 

After our time together, you’ll leave with more than notes and ideas. You’ll have a personalized Consultation Guide to create your own hospitable environments that bring diverse people together to achieve desired and meaningful results.


We hope you’ll join us. An empty seat at the table is an opportunity missed.
