5 Things Volunteers Wish Their Staff Knew

Submitted by James Higginbotham on June 1, 2008 – 6:30 pmNo Comment

In the spirit of the last series, 7 Things Your Church Staff Wish You Knew, this is a new series from the volunteer perspective. We’ll spend the next two weeks looking at some topics that lay leaders wish they could say but are afraid.

We’ll cover the following topics:

  1. Volunteers need a tour guide, not a travel agent – walk with them
  2. Volunteers have a lot to do and little time to do it – prepare the way for them
  3. Volunteers have a lot on their mind besides church – remind them often
  4. Volunteers live in a complicated world – simplify the process for them
  5. Volunteers bring talent and passion – listen to them
