Creating Irresistible Environments: A Few Tips

  1. Walk through your environment and evaluate traffic flow
  2. Invest in quality, consistent signage
  3. Remember that simplicity and clarity are key
  4. Ask: What in the environment is dated, old, or no longer serves a purpose? 
  5. Ask: When is the last time you invited your Lead Pastor to be a part of the kids' service? Then, invite them into the environment so they can experience it first hand.
