We have had so much fun with the team over at Church Communications recording this series of podcasts!
In this episode, Engaging New Members through Volunteering, we discuss the value of volunteering both within the church and in community outreach ministries. Volunteering in outreach ministries is a great way for new members to get to know other church members in a fun, non-threatening way. You are simply “doing good” together and there is no spotlight shining brightly on the new member’s eyes.
Our Signup Tool is a great way to help organize these activities, so that it does not become overly burdensome on (often limited) church support staff. We also brainstormed some ideas for cross-generational volunteering that can strengthen the fiber of your church family and engage senior congregants, while benefiting your local community as well.
What about you? Have you tried engaging new church members through volunteering? What are your most successful activities?
