I wish you could understand that our church has some problems no other church has, but we?re excellent at what we do.?
We’ve all been there – you’re singing along and you’re 2 lines into the next slide before the operator advances to the next slide of lyrics. It?s brutal. I mean brutal.
It feels like the congregation is on a roller coaster ride of singing together.
Being late on leading lyrics halts the worship of your people.
I’m a broken record when it comes to the number one thing you can do as a leader to grow your volunteer team – Pastor Your People First. You have to put the emotional and spiritual needs of your volunteers over the excellence of your experience. You must care more about who your people are becoming than what they do on your team. You must focus on their heart condition more than the button they push.
One of the keys to a dynamic Volunteer Team is scheduling your volunteers in such a way that there is a clear expectation of who is serving when. Planning is key. A ‘fly-by-your-seat, chasing down people to serve every week’ approach is a recipe for confusion and burnout – both for you and your volunteers.
