What are some simple ways to transform your classroom into a welcome space for first-time visitors? In this fifth episode, we answer this question--for both in-person or virtual classes--while addressing the importance of anticipating the perceptions and needs of both visitors and members you want to invite into a deeper relationship with Christ.

Segments of this episode feature quotes from Josh Kingcade, Seth Madaris, and Bob Turner. Josh has been on the program before, and serves as Education Minister at the Memorial Road Church of Christ in Oklahoma City. Seth will be the featured guest on the next episode, and serves as Spiritual Formations Minister at the Gateway Church of Christ in Pensacola. Bob Turner is the new Senior Minister for the White Station Church of Christ in Memphis.

In this episode, we cover several key topics including:

  • Creating an attractive strategy for class options (1:08)
  • Creating an attractive learning environment (11:09)
  • Creating an attractive online presence (20:14)
  • Meeting people where they are (28:01)
