I wish I could say organizing volunteers is like asking a kid if they want candy. The truth is, in today’s fast-paced, convenience-driven economy, finding volunteers to freely give of their time to fulfill ministry opportunities can be challenging at times.
One of the biggest myths of church volunteer participation is that people don’t want to give their time. Pastors, your congregation will follow you into service simply out of obedience in their submissiveness to follow you as you follow the Lord. If they were not willing to follow you, then they wouldn’t be a part of your congregation. All this to say, typically a lack of volunteer participation doesn't have anything to do with the willingness to serve.
