Today was a huge day in my 9-5 world. I am a volunteer organizer…today I received 77 new volunteer interest forms. This is a really big deal!
Volunteers are the life blood of our organization. It would be virtually impossible to accomplish the goal to meet and greet every person who walks onto our campus without volunteers.
Our church offers 5 services on the weekends. It takes approximately 150 volunteers to cover all of the needs of my ministry teams alone. Adding 77 volunteers to the team rosters seems like a lot of volunteers. That is until you break it down by service and team…the volunteers serve every other weekend, so that is 150 volunteers every weekend. After all the dust settles it equals out to approximately one new volunteer per team.
The original contact has been made…now the real work begins. I have to find a way to help these new volunteers stay excited about the commitment they have made.
What I did today will help someone make a difference in the life of someone else…Today was a huge day in my 9-5 world.
