    3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5 After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was […]

    All Volunteers are not the same. I realize this is not a new concept or remotely profound insight, however, it warrants repeating just to help team admins to remember to not get disappointed when they do not receive/observe the same level of dedication from each volunteer. My wife and I have been incredibly blessed with three wonderful daughters. Our oldest […]

Knowing that family and friends look forward to breaking bread and enjoying each other’s company in my home is a privilege I do not take lightly. Before everyone arrives, we spend time cleaning, cooking, and generally preparing the house to make sure everyone is […]

The idea behind this concept is simple, put a system in place that can accommodate the busy lives of volunteers without negatively affecting the schedule. I have yet to encounter any churches that have […]

    Automation is defined as “the linking of disparate systems and software in such a way that they become self-acting or self-regulating”. The concept of automating volunteer scheduling is in its infancy in the Church. In fact, most fortune 500 companies have just started to realize the major cost benefits of fully automating processes. These companies are investing more and more […]

    I first became aware of the “80/20 rule” concerning volunteers (specifically church volunteers) while conversing with a friend about the reasons why more people don’t engage in volunteer activities. For those unfamiliar with this “rule”, it basically states that 80% of the work is typically completed by only 20% of the congregation. The basic suggestion of the rule is that […]
