The Protocol Ministry is a vital part of any church as it is primarily the activities of this ministry on which the image of the church is built.  At Nain Hope Gospel Ministries, members of Protocol Ministry are the first to meet our members and guests.  We are responsible for making them feel welcomed, appreciated and special.

The Protocol Ministry is subdivided into four areas- Hospitality, Ushers, Parking Attendants and a Preparation Team. Together, we ensure that all the practical support that is required to facilitate worship in the sanctuary is provided to the honor and glory of God.

Failures of  Church Greeter

I know of a couple that quit going to church 4 years ago because no one said hello.

Another man told me his own story here:  “No one said Hello.”

The Impact of Church Greeters

However, my tutor told me her story of welcome in a church — the welcome that she received changed her life.  She found Christ because people accepted her.

Greeting people as they enter the facility is more than a handshake and a smile.

It is an opportunity to express God’s love through Christ and help set the tone of the upcoming worship service.
