Friendliness: A Form of Personal Ministries
Nearly 60% of Adventist churches report that their members are very excited about the future of their church. You can read more about personal ministries research by clicking here.

The challenge is how to find a way to help church members share their excitement with others, beginning with people who they don't know at church. Wouldn't it be great if more Adventists understood that greeting the new person at church with a smile is a basic form of evangelism. A church that is known as a friendly church will be a growing (and often-times more healthy) church.

What are you doing to help every member believe he or she is a greeter--willing to make every person who walks into your church feel welcome and well taken care of?
