There are a lot of reasons a church might grow. Sometimes people come because of the preaching, worship or great programs for children, youth and young adults.

Welcome Team at the Father's HouseHowever there is often an overlooked reason for church growth: that growing churches are friendly to visitors who are in fact our guests. All churches believe that they’re friendly, but when you take a good look at them, you often discover they’re friendly to people who have been attending for years and not to new people.

A visitor’s first few minutes at your church dramatically influence whether they’re coming back or not. You seldom get a second chance to make a first impression. When visitors come to your church for the first time, their number one emotion is fear. What will people think? What are they going to do? They do not know what is going on, and they’re most likely very apprehensive.

For this reason we at the Fathers House Christian Fellowship are intentional about making all our visitors feel welcome and relaxed when they enter through the doorway of the Fathers House.

We achieve this through our Welcoming Ministry Team, who is a team of warm, loving people that meet and greet visitors at our Sunday Service.
