VOLUNTEERS FOR TODAY'S CHURCH
So few people do almost all the work!
Too often the same small faithful group ends up volunteering their services in the church. Meanwhile, the majority seems content to watch the action - or lack thereof - from the sidelines. But there's hope for this all-too-common scenario to be changed.
Volunteers for Today's Church shows ministry leaders how to motivate the stand-by crowd to start playing the game. And although just getting players to sign up is a major task, seasoned coaches know that this is just the beginning. Determining the strengths of each volunteer is crucial for a strong team. Dennis Williams and Kenneth Gangel provide plenty of practical advice on how to dovetail a volunteer's gift-mix with a ministry that really fits.
