Season One Ep. 012 // Jonathan Malm (Grace Avenue Church) on The Come Back Effect
First impressions matter greatly to our guests at church on the weekend. And leaders who lead from the second chair, we play a big part of that experience. Maybe bigger than we realize. In this episode, Christian creative and author, Jonathan Malm of San Antonio, TX, joins us for a discussion on “The Come Back Effect” — how to create a church atmosphere that will make people want to come back and why it’s important. As church volunteers and leaders, it’s easy to get stuck focusing on our function (ie. opening a door, waving, passing out a flyer), but what is far more important than our job and function is exuding our church’s culture. Culture and a feeling of belongingness is why people “come back.”
