Flashback Friday: Why You Need a VHQ

Every Friday I dig into the archives and dust off an old post. If you haven’t read it, it’s new to you!

It creates a better environment all the way around: better for the health of our team, and better for the experience of our guests. Certainly, A1S1 poses a problem if you only have one service time, but for churches with multiple service options, we’ve found it to be very effective. (For more on A1S1, check out this post.)
