Summary: Even in ministry, you need job descriptions, simple giftedness assessments, basic training and a relationship with your volunteers.
Imagine you see a job opening that peaks your interest and you approach to learn more. You find out there is no job description. There is no specific skill-sets required for you to know if this would be in your wheelhouse. The role boldly states, “START IMMEDIATELY” but gives no clear end. You learn there is no upfront training or on boarding process. It appears that you just start. As to what you will be doing, you assume you will figure it out as you go. The interviewing manager, if you could call it an interview, is SO SCATTERED and overwhelmed that it becomes clear that you will have little to no ongoing interaction with them for support, guidance or direction. And, I forgot to mention, you are not paid.
You would NOT take this job. However, this is the offer we provide to volunteers in the local church all the time. This is OUR problem as leaders in the church and not the problem of skeptical volunteers. You need job descriptions, simple giftedness assessments, basic training and a relationship with your volunteers.
Lead Volunteers is a “Done For You” resource to fast track these items and more. Don’t be THAT leader any longer. Let us help.
