    My first win as a leader of volunteers came when I started delegating positions for the volunteers – specific roles that they had to make my leadership easier. It made things flow smoother and gave the volunteers a sense of purpose – which made for more involvement in the ministry and fewer no shows.

    My next win won’t come for a while, as I’m on a year sabbatical. However, hopefully my next win will be moving the volunteers to be more ‘outreach minded’.
