There are essentially 5 areas to express what it means to feel welcome.


  • Home is where the heart is warmed.
  • A Hospitable Leader is an expert at warming people’s hearts.
“When people’s hearts are warmed you can lead them in ways you couldn’t have before.”


  • Hebrews 13:2 makes the case that in being hospitable to all, we may unknowingly entertain angels.
  • We must move from loving our brothers to loving strangers.


  • Don’t lead people to help the leader’s dreams come true.
  • Pay attention just as much to the dreams of your followers.


  • When hearts are warmed, people are ready to hear you speak wonderful and hard truth.
  • Choose not to argue over disputable matters.


  • 5 chapters of John revolves around a meal. The post-resurrection reconciliation with Peter happens over breakfast. Jesus turns water into wine at the wedding at Cana.
“Make your leadership style a buffet of hope and positivity and encouragement.”
