The future of the local church is directly tied to its ability to attract, equip, and unleash the potential of volunteers in the church Pastor Bill Hybels sees a new reality on the horizon. There is unprecedented spiritual openness in todays society, and at the same time, increasing economic pressure on the resources of local churches. The solution lies squarely on the able shoulders of God-gifted volunteers. And they are ready for the challenge! Once trained, empowered, and inspired, record numbers of volunteers will take on all new levels of responsibility in the local church, creating a volunteer revolution that will transform churches and communities. The Volunteer Revolution reveals how all of this can happen and how churches can unleash vast amounts of untapped potential. Through real-life volunteer stories, Hybels inspires church leaders in their role as equippers while motivating potential volunteers to align themselves with Gods mission to change the world. The Volunteer Revolution is also available as an unabridged Audio Pages® CD.

David R. Bess3 Stars Out Of 5April 15, 2005David R. BessThis book is strong on inspiration, but weak on implementation. Just about everyone who takes the time to read this title will admit that volunteer ministry is a very good thing and should be greatly applauded. The problem however, is that those of us who are leaders would appreciate Hybels doing more than just "preaching to the choir." The ones needing to hear the message of this book are the ones who won't bother to read it.I respect Hybels and have benefited enormously from his other writings. This title unfortunately, doesn't fit his previous high standards. While enjoyable and easy to read, this book provides little help to a frustrated leader with few volunteers.
D. Lavigne5 Stars Out Of 5September 3, 2004D. LavigneBill Hybels has a long range of years of experience dealing with volunteers and I recommend this book to any Pastor who wants to use people effectively in the church to do God`s work. There are excellent ideals to help make things work in orderly fashion.
