Volunteer Enlistment Ideas

Looking for some creative ideas to enlist new volunteers?

The people who attended one of the workshops I taught at the recent KidMin conference created the posters below.

These posters represent creative ideas you can use to invite people to join your team.  Notice some of the strategies these posters reflect that are critical components of successfully enlisting new volunteers.
  • Use vision to invite instead of need.  
  • People want to make a difference...an impact.  Invite them to something bigger than themselves.
  • Invite people to the why instead of the what.  The why is the purpose behind serving.
Whether you're creating a bulletin board, poster, or placing an announcement in the worship bulletin, these are great ideas to use.  Special thanks to my friends who created them.
