A church without volunteers simply cannot function as it should. The principle of serving other people is a biblical principle that must be upheld in the church. Servant-leadership is embodied well when it comes to church volunteer participation. Volunteers are the driving force of every effective church. The only issue with this is that it can be difficult to get them to cooperate. Perhaps you have experienced this, or maybe you have even experienced a lack of volunteers altogether. Furthermore, in too many instances, churches will become frustrated by a lack of volunteer dedication, causing them to forfeit efforts.
The truth is, volunteer participation is something that church leaders have a large amount of control over. From initial recruitment to maintaining efficiency, the leader’s role in sustaining volunteer participation is difficult, yet highly attainable. How do you inspire volunteers to show up on the weekends and lead? What are the key strategies that will bring your volunteers to the next level? These are the types of questions that we hope to answer in this series.
As you seek to improve the systems surrounding your church volunteer participation, there are several aspects that you must consider. You must know how to create a culture that is able to sustain effective volunteers, avoid barriers that prevent volunteer participation, effectively recruit volunteers, and increase the capacity of your volunteers. In this series, we will teach you how to accomplish these things, as well as a multitude of other relevant facets of leadership regarding church volunteer participation.
In a world that says, “what’s in it for me,” it can be extremely difficult to get a group of volunteers to latch on and consistently participate. Although this is the unfortunate reality, we believe that God provides for the church and His purpose.
