6 Ideas to Recruit Volunteers for Large Events

We can all agree that volunteer recruitment is an essential part of our roles as kidmin leaders. Let’s face it: we could not do what we do in ministry without a healthy and expanding volunteer team.

6 Ways to Consider Seniors in Serving Kids

Churches need babies and grandparents. But what are the barriers to them being in the same room together? There are many seasoned saints that would love to rock a new baby member of your church but just cannot imagine doing it. With the up and down of playtime, or the worry of tripping on scattered toys, engaging seniors in serving kids can feel challenging. However, there are ways to integrate seniors into your ministry, it just takes asking some questions and making a few adjustments.

Investing In The Spiritual Growth Of Volunteers

As ministry leaders, this is our heart. We want to equip and empower our volunteers to be the most amazing, dynamic, and effective leaders that they can be. But we would be remiss if we focused strictly on their ministry impact and neglected their spiritual care, growth, and development. We have the amazing opportunity to shepherd and care for our volunteers in a way that draws them closer to Christ.
