Tampa Church Planters Network (1.15.07)
Volunteerism – Hal Mayor from Church @ the Bay
STAFF (Paid or Volunteer) – What do you look for?
One staff member will get you to 500 – Those who enlist.
One will get you to a 1000 – Leaders of Leaders. They can enlist enlisters.
How do you find them? - Church Attendees in the “Pool.” Need to get them on a “ladder” out of the pool. Think incrementally in steps. (Training Shamu Illustration) The Steps: Reward volunteers as they jump over the rope higher and higher. The Ladder: Decide what steps there are on the ladder and what level of commitment is needed to be at that step.
Book: Ken Blanchard “Situational Leadership”
If they get stuck on the ladder kick them off and put them on another ladder.
BIGGEST MISTAKES (From the group):
No Worship Leader
No Money / Raising Funds as You Go
Too Small a Space
Not Being Prepared for the Drain
Not taking Advantage of the Space in between Previews
