How to Create a Digital Guest Pathway


Creating guest pathways in ministry is so important to keeping guests at your Church engaged and coming back. It's important for you to have a pathway from being a guest to a regular attender and member of your "in person" Church AND for your online ministry. The reality is that people will likely come to your Church first online before they come in person to your Church. So, how do you create an effective digital guest pathway for your Church? 

To talk about this is Jake McNamara, Online Pastor at The Compass Church in Illinois. Jake shares his insights on how to fully engage someone new to their Church Online and how your Church can do something similar.
