Volunteers in the Church Thought

Pastors and Leaders of good and growing churches empower the people in their care.

They do not see or use volunteers just as helpers, but as the tools and the prime resources with which to glorify God, and enablers of the goals of missions and needs to be reached. They do this by encouragement, training, and organization, all centered to have the people of God growing in and receiving the Spirit in order to reach the full potential that God has for them. If a pastor, coach, or key supervisor gives special recognition and encouragement even once, that leader and/or volunteer will usually remain very faithful and loyal to the church!

(Romans 12; John 4:23; Colossians 1:24-29; 1 Timothy 4:15-16)

Why do churches not do this?

How is your church with its volunteers?
