If you've ever received a "bad" gift, you get it.

It's not that you're unappreciative. You just don't know what to do with a wall-mounted fish that sings when people walk by. You don't think you'll ever wear a pink unitard that says "Work Out" anywhere. When guests arrive at your church, it's a nice gesture to give them a gift to say thank you for coming, just make sure you've thought it through so that the message you send is what you want. Justin Nava from Mr. Church Marketer gives us lots of great insight to the good, the bad, and the ridiculous guest gifts!

IN THIS EPISODE

  • The right philosophy behind giving guest gifts
  • Good gift ideas
  • Bad gift ideas and what makes them bad
