In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins, Chandler Vannoy, and Dan Iten discuss 5 Leadership Questions on the topic of effectively recruiting volunteers.
“Our job of course is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry.”
“We aren’t just looking for a warm body who can fill a seat. We want to get the right volunteers in the right seat.”
“Desperation for volunteers is not a good look, so you are going to get a poor result when you approach it with that posture.”
“Many times, we actually say no for a person when we are asking them to serve.”
“If you are recruiting me, you need to do so with great clarity including a job description and expectations.”
“There is a high cost to a cheap ask.”
“What you celebrate is what you cultivate in the culture.”
