Flashback Friday: Think Through It Before They Think Through It
Every Friday I dig into the archives and dust off an old post. If you haven’t read it, it’s new to you!
We’ve talked before about the importance of absorbing the awkwardness for your guests. That means we want to think through their experience before they arrive in order to help them avoid any embarrassment.
But as you go into the weekend, it’s just as important to think through the experience of your volunteers. If your church is like ours, you probably roll out something new every week or so and change stuff around just for kicks and giggles. If you want to bring a vol up to speed quickly, you need to take five minutes and think about the questions they might have and the obstacles they might face. That doesn’t mean that you don’t let your vols lead, it just offers the simple courtesy of letting them know what you know.
