If you fail with volunteers...

(Don't believe it? Go here, here, here, here, here, and here.)

Yet, the overwhelming majority of ministry leaders have had very little—if any—training when it comes to finding, developing, and retaining volunteers for ministry.

I have great news for you.

Help is on the way!

You—and anyone else you know who oversees ministry volunteers in any capacity—are invited to these three biblical, interactive, and practical training experiences.

Session #1 Finding Volunteers
We'll explore five practical ways to turn pew potatoes into passionate participators.
Plus we'll explore...

* How to develop a volunteer "job description" for your ministry
