And Covid hasn’t helped any, proper?
But this is the excellent news. There are some confirmed formulation that can make it easier to get extra volunteers. I share many of those in my e-book The Formula for Building Great Volunteer Teams. It’s out there at this hyperlink.
One step I speak about within the e-book is to make use of the technique of “One Time = Full Time.”
Here’s how to do that. When you’ve got a giant occasion coming like Easter, VBS, Camp, Fall Festival, Christmas, and so forth., do a church broad push to get individuals to enroll one time for the occasion. Focus this ask on individuals who have by no means volunteered earlier than.
Next, give them a terrific expertise serving that one time. Put them along with your perfect volunteers. Feed them. Send them a thanks notice.
Next step is that this – Contact every one who served one time for the occasion and ask them to affix your crew full-time. Make this contact in at least every week after they served.
Do this and you can be amazed at what is going to occur. One Easter we did this and 85% of the individuals who served for Easter joined our crew on a full-time foundation.
One of the individuals I contacted after a fall pageant joined our crew on a full-time foundation and finally grew to become a workers member and did nice issues for God within the ministry.
One time = Full time. Try it along with your subsequent massive occasion. See what God will do.
