A day long on-site session at the Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, led by Danny Franks, Pastor of Guest Services.
A seminar format that will cover one of the following topics:
- Volunteer Culture (August 6): finding, training, and keeping those who serve on the weekend.
- Guest Services (September 17): what it is, why your church needs it, and how the gospel speaks to the way we do it.
- After the First Visit (October 15): taking your guests beyond the first visit with robust follow up, reproducible systems, and next steps that stick

Anyone who considers connections ministry part of their job description. One-Day Workshops are open to full-time or part-time staff members, ministry interns, and key volunteers.

Workshops are $99 per person, and include:
- Specific training in particular areas, helping you to focus on where you are and where you need to be.

- Practical tools and resources to help you get started.
- Meals and snacks throughout the day.
"The Summit team did an awesome job of teaching best volunteer practices in a way that can be transferred to any type of church context or ministry team. The one day spent at the Summit set us up to create an environment for our volunteers to thrive for years to come." - Mike Richardson, Lead Pastor, Tequesta's First Baptist Church, Tequesta, FL
I was afraid the Workshop might not be very valuable because it was only one day and it wasn't very expensive, but I took a chance. Wow! It was amazing information that was very practical. I took away two or three really great ideas that I can't wait to take back to my church and begin to implement. I will definitely be back next year! - Laura Johnson, Guest Services Director, First Baptist Church, Bristol, IN
Exceptionally well done and informative Workshop! Everything was professionally done, on time, and well thought out. Materials and the workbook were excellent. - Tom Armbrister, Associate Pastor, London Bridge Baptist Church, Virginia Beach, VA
This was easily one of the most informative, practical workshops that I've ever been a part of. Ultimately, I would sit through it again tomorrow, because I know there's a wealth of knowledge in there that I missed. - Jonathan Creel, Worship Pastor, New Horizon Church, Durham, NC
This One-Day Workshop was well worth the trip! No matter where your church is in it's guest experience ministry, you will gain so many insights into how to improve. We have already scheduled our first guest experience training and made major changes based on things we didn't even realize we were communicating through our process. Thanks for taking the time to help us out. I highly recommend attending. - MP Leek, Connections Pastor, Passion Community Church, Cincinnati, OH
The One-Day Workshop was a motivating and thought provoking experience for my team! I can take all of the principles we learned about and easily apply them to many areas and ministries of our church. We learned logical reasoning for how Summit serves her guests and more importantly, sound biblical reasoning for their structure. I'm looking forward to my next One-Day Workshop! - Kayla Matthews, Collide Kids Director / Church Administrator, Collide Church, Yadkinville, NC
