5 Fishing Tips For Catching Volunteers
Recruiting volunteers can seem a lot like going fishing, except when you arrive at the fishing hole, you find that every other ministry in the church is fishing too. Not only are the other ministries fishing but the best angler, the Pastor, has the best spot and using better bait! Add to that the fact that people value their personal and family time more than they once did.
I am 61 years old and I can remember when people would stand for hours just to sign up to volunteer. It was sort of like the time I went fishing and the fish jumped out of the water into the boat without bait or a pole. Yep, those were the days that never happened!
Engaging volunteers has always been an elusive art; however, it does not have to be the impossible dream either. You might not ever write a book on recruiting volunteers, but you can be successful in helping people become fisher of men, women, girls, and boys!
