Responsibilities may include: tracking the visits of visitors and making introductions; writing notes of welcome to visitors; hosting meals; teaching new member classes; pairing new members with current members of similar life interests, vocations, or backgrounds; and encouraging new members to become part of a small group (such as a Sunday School class, choir, ministry, program, committee, etc.) in which they are interested and feel called to use their gifts and abilities.
