Here’s a not-so-secret secret: People want to help. They genuinely, truly and sincerely want to help. So when it comes to recruiting – and retaining – volunteers, the problem is not the interest of the person in your pew. Instead, it’s that we expect that they will seek us out and ask to serve.
All Christians – and most non-Christians – know the fundamentals of Easter: Easter is a celebration commemorating the crucifixion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
This month, we’re taking time to identify and address three of the biggest challenges every church faces: assimilation, engagement and retention. We’ll carefully unpack each focal issue, taking an in-depth look at each to identify its root challenges, solve for its existing issues and then strategize a preventative, proactive approach for each moving forward.
