First Impressions Conference First Impressions Conference


They are the words we all long to hear after 2020. “Welcome back.” “Welcome home.” “Welcome to Sunday service.” It’s happening and we’re here to help you along the way.

We have gathered a diverse group of 20 speakers, communicators, authors, storytellers, pastors, and guest services directors to teach and train and encourage us this Spring. We’re focusing on quality over quantity. You can watch any speaker you want on-demand this year.

Join us on this adventure of reaching, keeping, and engaging with guests.

Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place.
