Volunteer Revolution -1.5 hours

We know that the future of a church is directly tied to its ability to attract, equip, and unleash the God-given potential of volunteers. Yet, it is one of a leader’s biggest challenge. Leaders often feel that there are not enough people to do the things they want to do. What if the God who inspired the vision would also provide the “man power” to see it fulfilled? In this session, we will share practical ways to recruit, train, encourage and retain those in your church to create a volunteer revolution.
