Perhaps God has blessed your ministry with the vision and ministry space to practice hospitality and put on your own big event. Whether it’s a national conference or a smaller scale event like a carnival night for your local community, opening your church’s doors to non-members presents many logistical challenges.
Planning a big event requires foresight and attention to detail. We all know things don’t always go exactly according to plan. Unfortunately, the more people you bring together in one place, the higher the probability of something unexpected occurring. You could have unwelcome visitors or unforeseen emergency situations that can take you by surprise and leave even the best of planners scrambling to address the needs of the moment.
But take heart, with a little risk management planning now, you can feel confident that whatever situation arises, you’ll have the staff and contingency plans to address it.
