I guarantee you my church volunteer recruitment ideas will get you more volunteers.
While not easy to implement they are simple.
And you can do them.
The ideas revolve around one central strategy: an annual recruitment drive.
This simple strategy is a guaranteed way to gain new volunteers.
Plus it also serves as a time of:
- celebrating the work of your volunteers
- inspiring your current workers
- giving volunteers an opportunity to try something new
Eleven Key Elements Of An Annual Recruitment Drive
1. Conduct it over two or three weekends
It’s preferable to hold your drive at the start of your church year. Don’t restrict it to just one weekend as you will miss a sizeable portion of your congregation.
2. Preach on serving
During your weekend services, build your message around the value of serving and what it means to be a volunteer in your church.
3. Highlight unsung heroes
In your services focus on behind-the-scenes people whose work can tend to go unnoticed.
