2016 Workshop

Children's Ministry Leadership: Recruiting and Keeping Rock-Solid Volunteers


Recruiting and keeping rock-solid volunteers is much more than just saying “help!” It is inviting others to answer the high calling of children’s and youth ministry.

Using the book of Nehemiah, we will find that effective and lasting recruiting must target the mind, imagination, heart, and commitment.

God did a miracle in completing the wall of Jerusalem in just 52 days – with burnt out, exhausted workers. Could He desire to do the same in your ministry?

Come learn to follow Nehemiah’s example to recruit and keep your volunteers motivated when times get tough.
