One of the biggest struggles churches are facing in the wake of COVID-19 has been inspiring and recruiting volunteers. Ministry leaders around the nation have expressed frustration with everchanging guidelines and expectations around shelter-in-place and what it means for those attending (and volunteering) in-person and online. Many churches are now working with hybrid models of ministry that involve in-person and online components, such as live streaming, chatting, social media engagement, and more. This means that there are more jobs that need the help of volunteers and new ways of doing things to engage and connect with people in-person and online.
When it comes to church volunteers, many churches will shout open opportunities from the rooftops in hopes their pleas will land on a few willing ears. Some churches even beg in desperation. These actions beg the question, is there an easier way to get church members to volunteer? Praise be, yes! Lucky for us, scripture gives us a hint to get us started in the right direction.
