David Fantin is the Client Relations Associate at Vanderbloemen Search Group. He has the unique perspective of getting to talk to or visit hundreds of church leaders all over the country about their church's challenges. When he moved across the country last year, he also had the unique opportunity to see how dozens of churches treat first-time visitors.

Holly talks with David about:

  • How church leaders can put themselves in the shoes of their visitors
  • Questions about the church "meet & greet" time
  • How churches can avoid pulling a bait & switch on visitors
  • Alternatives to the typical church stand & greet time

Quotes from David:
