CANCELLED: Are Your Tech Volunteers Performing Their Priestly Duties? What Does that Look Like?
Compared to 100 years ago, today, more than ever, our volunteers are being asked to do more and fill more roles than they have been trained for. We have parking lot attendants, greeters, ushers, praise team members, band members, children’s workers, choir members, and staff that rarely meet together, much less pray together or get consistent direction from leadership. Wouldn’t it be refreshing to have a built-in prayer team focused on the task at hand?
This CFX Talk will teach and encourage leadership to unify their workers, motivate, give them vision, and minister to the flock. Our goals should be a constant reminder based on congregational needs as well as growing the flock spiritually and making disciples. We’ll give specific “how-tos” to make a plan and implement a shepherding strategy for tech volunteers.
