I saw this study a few days ago:
One out of every five Christian nonprofits is reportedly relying to a greater extent on volunteers to offset the economic downturn, according to a study conducted by J. David Schmidt & Associates for the Christian Leadership Alliance. In addition, with the downturn in the economy, more people are without current employment and have free time to volunteer.
I’ve often heard that leading a growing church is one of the toughest jobs in the world. Compared to the corporate world, we are in a much different position because of our great reliance on volunteers. And with the current economic climate, it seems we’re all running leaner than ever when it comes to staffing.
What better time is there to perform a tune-up on your church’s ministry system?
- How many people are serving in your church? Do you even know?
- How well are you involving new believers in serving? What are the best “on ramps” to service at your church?
- Are there any volunteer roles that a non-believer could fill at your church?
- How long have your key volunteers been serving without a break?
- Does everyone who volunteers at your church know how much they’re valued?
- Is your church’s ministry system functioning to its fullest potential?
My latest 3 hour system seminar, The Ministry Seminar, will help you in each of these areas (and many more). I lay out a systematic, practical approach to maximizing your church’s volunteers that involves more than just “getting things done,” but also helping each of them to grow to become more like Christ.
