Volunteers are the heartbeat of a successful youth ministry, but they aren’t always easy to find, and they can be even harder to keep. That’s why a good volunteer is worth his or her weight in gold. Finding and keeping good volunteers is one of the most important jobs for anyone who’s trying to build a youth ministry for the long haul.
In this episode, Steve remembers some of the challenges and blessings of his days as a youth volunteer, while Mathew is trying to forget his recent experience as a volunteer for his kids’ school. Together, they share some ways they go about finding volunteers, ideas for how to integrate them into the ministry, and thoughts on how we can encourage our best volunteers to stay in it forever and ever.
It’s Episode 11 — Finding and Keeping Volunteers.
