I can not tell you how many times I hear people say that their church members are not volunteering. Lets take a look at this graphic from Volunteering In America and see what it shows us.
So are you one who is having volunteer struggles? Here are a few questions for you that hopefully you have answers for, and if not I hope you will take the time to get the answers so you can change your volunteer status.
1. How are you connecting your volunteers to the bigger picture?
2. Do they know the true mission that is before them? Is the vision bigger than what you can handle and accomplish with just your current team?
3. Who and what are the most successful churches, businesses and organizations in your area that are doing the best in recruiting and keeping volunteers? Become a student of them, learn from them, see what you can take and apply from them.
