The receptionist–the one who greets the public–is in many ways your most important staffer.
She is the first person most people see when they walk in, the voice they talk with on the phone, and the only one a lot of outsiders will deal with from your church.
Pastor, she can make you or break you.
She can be a light to someone coming in from the dark, lift the spirits of a visitor who ran out of hope miles up the road, defrost the spirit of Jack Frost himself, and protect the beleaguered pastor who desperately needs an hour of study time without interruptions.
She can do all these things and more. But she can also run people off faster than Sunday’s lousy sermon or Wednesday night’s cold ham and peas.
Where does one find a receptionist sent from Heaven?
Ask God. He knows them all, has full resumes on each person on the planet, and runs the best placement service ever. Pray.
