Summary: According to scripture, the role of a pastor is to build up the body to do the work of the ministry - NOT to do all the work themselves.
A recent survey blew my mind. One-fifth of volunteers said the reason they do not serve is because there is not a job for them to do. What? Did you hear that? Now, let me get something straight. The majority of pastors I meet are burned out from DOING ministry. And yet one-fifth of people NOT volunteering say they don’t serve because their isn’t something for them to do? Something is not lining up.
Hey pastors, stop robbing volunteers from an opportunity to lay up treasure in heaven. You DOING the work means they have less to do. The Body of Christ can begin to experience atrophy or the weakening of muscles due to underuse. According to scripture, the role of a pastor is to build up the body to do the work of the ministry. Here is the catch.
In order to have someone else do the work, you need to lay out HOW to do the work. And guess what? Laying out HOW to do the work IS ACTUALLY WORK ITSELF. There is good news. I have created the Easy Button. Lead Volunteers is a Master Class and Implementation strategy to easily pass work onto volunteers in a way that honors them and is doable for you. Let us help you.
