Welcome to Guest Services Team Resource Network

I hope to visit you and speak with you face-to-face. Peace to you, my friend. Your friends here send their loving greetings to you. Please greet each one of our friends there by name.

– John 1:14-15 (The Passion Translation)

When we welcome anyone into our homes, we see them as a guest and want to serve them and connect with them. At Open Door, we are honored to welcome guests into God’s home, a place where reconciliation, healing, salvation, community, encouragement, and so much more happens! We invite you to come and share in this journey of leading people into the Adventure of Becoming Like Christ every Sunday at any of our campuses (Elyria, Avon Lake, Vermilion, or Lorain).

As a Guest Service teammate, you will experience on-site training and flexible scheduling, receive a red logo’ed team tee shirt, name badge, and lanyard along with other tools. We want to give you the best experience for welcoming people to our campuses so they can know God better and take a “next step” toward His purpose for their life. In serving on this team, you just may find you have taken that very step in your own life!

Reach out to a Guest Services team member, the campus pastor, or host pastor any Sunday and join the Guest Services team at one of our four locations, because we can say with confidence, “You Belong Here.”

WORD Wisdom

Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!

– Romans 15:13 MSG

You Belong Here

‘Love first’ means that we follow God’s example by going the extra mile, showing love and showing that we care to the point where people cannot resist our church’s ministry. They just have to come. They have to be here in person. We can draw them online, or an attender can ask them to come. As a result, they say, “I have to show up. I’ve never felt this way. I have to go in person.” Being hospitable is huge. Speaking when you see someone in the street or parking lot, on the sidewalk, and when they come into your home, (and to apply it, into God’s home on Sunday) is great hospitality! We want to pray for them, to show we care about them, to empathize with them. We don’t just want their information. They want to feel like we care.
