EPISODE 006: The 10 Reasons Why Someone Serves at Your Church (Part One)
LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE:
Show Notes and Resources Mentioned:
I believe there are at least 10 reasons why someone serves at your church and on your team.
1. To grow in their relationship with Christ.
When someone serves on your team, they are surrounded with other believers that can encourage and strengthen their walk with Christ.
2. It helps them discover their purpose and feel fulfilled.
When you serve and give up your time and energy for someone else, you get emotionally and spiritually recharged. It gives more meaning to your life as a servant of Christ.
3. To use their skills and talents for the Kingdom.
Each one of your volunteers has incredible skills, talents, and abilities. Your volunteers want to use their gifts and skills for the Kingdom, it’s your job to create opportunities for them to be used.
4. Out of obedience to Jesus.
Jesus commands us to serve others. When your volunteers serve the local church through your team, they are being obedient to what Jesus has called them to.
5. To follow Jesus’ example.
God sent His son to be the ultimate servant. When your volunteers serve, they are following the very example Jesus set for us- giving of themselves for other people.
When creating your volunteer culture, it’s good to know why your volunteers are there in order to know how to minister to them.
Your team members want to be involved in something that matters.
What we do in ministry matters for eternity!
