Are You Empowering Your Volunteers? This Quick Test Will Tell

As ministry leaders, our job is to empower volunteers to do the work of the ministry.  Ephesians 4 is clear about this.

"Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers.  Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do His work and build up the church, the body of Christ."

It's not about what you can do in ministry, it's about what you can empower others to do.   

Want to know if you are empowering your volunteers?  Here's an easy test that will tell you.

How well does the ministry operate when you are not there?  If it runs smoothly and doesn't miss a beat, then you are empowering your volunteers.  If it falls apart, then your volunteers are not being empowered.  When you are empowering your volunteers, you should be able to step back into the shadows and everything runs as normal.  In fact, if you are doing a great job at empowering your volunteers, then the ministry should not just maintain when you are absent, but it should make progress and move forward.  

Are you hesitant about being away from the ministry because you're afraid things will not go well?  Are you looking for more ways to empower your volunteers?  Join us for a live webinar this Saturday, February 18th, to discover key ways to empower your volunteers.  Gina McClain, children's pastor at Faith Promise Church, will be sharing how to empower your volunteers to own the ministry. Gina is a dynamic leader who has build a great volunteer team.   She will add great value to your ministry. 

You will also receive an ecopy of my newest book entitled "The Formula for Building Great Volunteer Teams."  In this book, I share how we built and empowered a team of over 2,600 volunteers.
