These visitors seldom stay long at one church.
They get upset at something the church does, the church enters a building program that scares them away, or they simply grow bored. Likely, they’ll only stick for a while at the new church, too, so don’t be take it personally if they disappear, as it may not be anything you did or didn’t do.
Enjoy them while they are with you.
Most likely, these people moved to your community or some major issue caused them to leave their current church.
These visitors are active church attendees looking for a new long-term home. They are ready to quickly commit and serve.
It’s important to plug these people in as soon as possible.
Again, churches love visitors. In fact, we like any of these five types.
Knowing why someone is visiting your church, however, often helps the way you respond to them and gives you a better chance of keeping them.
I wouldn’t recommend you ask them which of these they are, but it’s good to have in the back of your mind as you get to know them.
