Cass Wheeler, the long time president of the American Heart Association, shares the “Rule of Three” when it comes to Volunteers in his book You’ve Gotta Have Heart.
He says if you are going to have an abundance of volunteers (and that’s what we all want!) and get the job done with excellence, then you must understand the rule of three:
- One Third of your volunteers will show up on time and happily complete the task assigned in an excellent fashion.
- One Third of your volunteers will eventually complete the task if you encourage and motivate them heavily.
- One Third will never complete the task.
Do you think this is true in church too?
P.S. For more on how to have an abundance of volunteers, check out my Ministry Seminar here.
