    I agree with you all the way. Keeping your volunteering a spiritual experience, not one of backbreaking to-do-lists, creates an environment of growth and depth. We do all the typical things for recruiting more volunteers…asking volunteers to ask their friends and family, we’ve done invite cards, etc…but two we’ve recently implemented that seem to be getting some traction are: having our small group leaders display our volunteering opportunities materials at their small groups so people from their group can ask about it in a closer-knit environment and take it home to discuss further. We’ve also seen success at one of our campuses with their “quick 5” initiative where every staff person is required to meet and set a quick weekday appt with 5 new guest per weekend. In that appt they discuss steps such as our membership class, baptism, and of course…the volunteer ask.

      Dirk, these are great ideas! I especially love the small groups promo. Our brand new small groups pastor is my former membership guy from my team. I might cash in a favor. 🙂
