Have a Heart for People

People are the ONLY thing that matter!

Pastor Tavner’s message, “Do It For The People,” challenged us to be eternity-driven and to be aware of our assignment to show the world who Jesus is.

“Every number has a name, every name has a story, and every story matters to God because every person matters to God.”
– Pastor Tavner Smith

Hospitality Tips

Welcome Home

At Venue Church we have a ‘Welcome Home’ culture. The difference between “Welcome Home” and “Make Yourself At Home” is the intentionality, excellence, and preparation that you invest into hosting your Watch Party.

Level of Preparation = Level of Expectation

In Venue Watch Parties we honor everyone so that we all feel valued, loved, and welcome. We can honor our guests through our weekly preparation. Your level of preparation shows your level of expectation. Honor your Watch Party Guests by preparing well for your Watch Party each week because you’re expecting God to do big things in your Watch Party.

Honor Their Time & Yours

We can also honor our guests by starting & ending on time. That communicates that your Watch Party members’ time is just as valuable as yours is, and it also creates consistency that your Watch Party guests can depend on.

Miracles Happen When You Open Your Home

“Inviting someone into your home is the greatest act of hospitality that you can do.” – Pastor Tavner Smith

Something happens to people when you invite them into your space.

  • Peter opened his home to Jesus and his mother in law got healed. [Luke 40:38-39]
  • A little girl died and when Jesus showed up in her home she was healed. [Luke 8:51-55]
  • The paralytic was healed when he was lowered down into the home. [Mark 2:1-12]

A great way to set an exciting atmosphere is through background music with a great playlist.

You can also set the atmosphere intentionally with excellence through making sure your space is clean and smelling nice, setting up great lighting, and providing adequate seating.

We’ve provided you with a candle in your complimentary Host Box to help your space smell nice.

We understand that you live in this space, but be sure to honor your guests by tidying up your space so they’re not distracted by dust, pet hair, or dirty dishes.
