[Simply Strategic Volunteers]
- Helping people find their place in ministry. Lifechurch.tv has stuff on their “open” sight.
- Teach the shoulder tap to the volunteers. It is their job too!!!
- Invite, select, equip, engage, evaluate.
- It is hard to strategize when the bullets are flying.
- What does the process look like when someone wants to volunteer? How do you follow up? What are the steps? Is it easy or hard? Do you even know it? How can you do more “Show Up and Go”. Challenge with “Show Up and Go” is you have to have someone there to be their “buddy” or “leader” that day.
- Identify a target and a time frame.
- Teaching (from the stage, message series).
- Invest and invite in the context of volunteering (teach them to shoulder tap someone to join them)
- Need leaders over the high volume volunteering areas.
- Make sure the systems are streamlined (training, scheduling, forms)
- Make serving THE next step for someone attending.
- Begins with teaching… do people know they are supposed to.
- Preaching in series on money is more productive.
- Financial counseling and seminars also work.
- Model it as a church first! (Debt? Reserves? Tithing?)
- Good financial planning for the church.
- There is a season for sharing the financial realities of your church.
- Track the numbers and trends.
- Vision, vision, vision.
- Make the offering an event.
- What are the practical giving goals (get people connected to online giving???)
