Microsoft made a terrible decision to remove the “Start” button from Windows 8.
Computer users now have to hunt through the new maze of tiles in order to find what they might be looking for.
Microsoft has even added some layers of complexity that make formerly simple tasks hard to do.
I know, I’m a user of Windows 8 and I don’t like it.
They took a simple concept and made it hard.
So what does this have to do with church hospitality?
1. Â There is no start button.
If you are the newly appointed leader of the church hospitality committee, you might be taking on the task of improving the welcome your visitors receive.
But where do you begin?
Where is “start?”
- Do you need to find volunteers?
- Do you need to bring order to a disorganized welcome ministry?
- Do you need to figure out what a church hospitality committee does?
Where do you start?
2. Â It can be simple.
Microsoft made things complex by hiding formerly simple procedures.
Some welcome and hospitality ministries have gotten way too complex in layers of bureaucracy.
They have committees and sub committees.
They’ve separated welcome from assimilation, greeters from ushers, parking from the post visitor reception.
They’ve scheduled greeters on rotating Sundays 1x a year so that no one knows who is supposed to be there.
It doesn’t have to be that hard.
You can make it simple again.
Don’t be overwhelmed.
If you are re-starting your church’s hospitality ministry, you might be discovering that you are in over your head.
That’s what this person discovered.
