Recruiting + Retaining: in both of these the foundation should be based on relationships and expectations
How do we get people back (into serving)?
- Pray for them
- Set time commitments
- Give ownership
- Connect volunteers with each other
- Know who your volunteers are, not just what role you need them to fill
- Have entry-level positions
- clarify your time commitments
- Adjust your own expectations
- Help volunteers build relationships with each other
- Say “Thanks” as often as you can
- Invest in them personally.
- Share expectations thru training
- Get feedback
- Stop saying “No” for people
- Build relationships and set expectations
- Give ownership to key leaders
