The onset of the global pandemic changed so much of what we’ve known ministry to be inside and outside the church. Social distancing, and non-physical gatherings brought new challenges where connection and relationship building are concerned.

With so much ministry happening BOTH in the building AND online, how can we earn the second, third, and ongoing visits from those who are new to our faith communities? New strategies are required for living into what it means to be a hospitable church.

In a season where everything feels different, how can we claim or reclaim a passion for radical hospitality, making great first impressions and work toward being poised for guests before they arrive?

Join guest readiness and hybrid worship author and coach Jason Moore for an exploration of what it means to extend BOTH/AND Hospitality.

You’ll learn how to make great first impressions from your website (the front door), to the building (the physical door). We’ll talk best practices on signage, developing hybrid language that includes everyone, learn how to build a relational pathway into your communities and so much more. This highly practical training will give you immediate, accessible takeaways. It’s meant for laypeople and clergy alike, from churches of any size, worship style, ranging from rural, to in the city and everything in between.

Register your whole team for this 90 minute training designed to help you to create an intentional BOTH/AND hospitality process.

In addition to the training, participants will be invited to four 1-hour followup cohort conversations hosted by the Innovation Center’s Sue Nilson Kibbey and Jason Moore.




4 sessions: February 2, February 16, March 2, and March 16, 2022.

Are you breathing? Right now, are you breathing or are you holding your breath? We unconsciously hold our breath often because we are experiencing unprocessed trauma. Our bodies attempt to alert us to our needs and yet, we can easily miss it. We can easily become so consumed with “doing” that we miss “being,” we miss what our bodies are trying to inform us of. These interactive sessions will help you reconnect. You will gain tools, strategies and language for creating healthy emotional formation, which in turn will help you to become emotionally an healthy leader. Bring your honesty and your growing edges, your desire for emotional renewal, and your hunger to learn how to become and stay emotionally refreshed ongoing in your leadership role and responsibilities.
