All types of church ministries can only function well with committed volunteers. Yet most ministry leaders will say that recruiting and maintaining these volunteers are persistently difficult tasks. What is the ministry leader to do?
Larry Fowler, director of program and training for Awana Clubs International, believes that there are seven biblical principles, drawn from the book of Nehemiah, that will help pastors and leaders more effectively motivate and manage volunteers. Rock-Solid Volunteers looks at the obstacles Nehemiah and his volunteer workers faced: fatigue, weakness, loss of vision, peer pressure, and opposition, just for starters! He examines the seven steps Nehemiah took to lead his volunteers to success. Pastors and ministry leaders will be equipped to attract, inspire, and keep talented, committed volunteers, no matter the challenge!
This is an excellent book for all types of ministries: children, youth, nursury, media, outreach, teaching, hospitality, service, and more!
