As part of the Explorer Connections program, you'll be receiving people responding to a variety of campaigns, asking a variety of questions. Some will be looking for a church home. Some will be hurting and just need a listening ear. Some will be in need of very real, physical help. People may want to discuss anxiety, depression, relationships, loneliness, spirituality, being hurt by religion, and much more.
In this article you can find some sample conversations with some strategies and tips we've found to be effective in creating good conversations with Explorers. We'll start with an example of a full conversation to illustrate the process, and then we'll provide several other examples of simple first interactions to help you get the conversation started.
