We all struggle to get our volunteers to catch the vision of our ministries. To truly fall in love with ministering to kids and students. Orange Conference will really help you be able to do that.
Here are 3 practical things you can do thru Orange, to invest in your team to get them to catch the vision that you’ve been sharing.
1. Bring em
I’ve been blessed to be able to take some staff and volunteers to Orange. The ones that go, fall in love deeper with the vision. Just like we share with parents that they need other voices in their child’s life, your volunteers need other voices in their lives as well. I had an intern one time tell me that me and my fellow student pastor must be smart because all the things he was hearing were the same things we had been sharing with him over the past few months.
Now, while we aren’t the smartest, we know that true principles are true across the board.
You may have folks that won’t hear something from you, but when they hear it from Reggie, Andy, or Doug, their ears open like never before.
2. Buy em stuff
This is an opportunity to learn and not everyone can be there. Share your learning with others. Buy that book that your team needs, the sessions that they missed and the voices you want them to know.
A book is a resource that can keep on giving. It’s another simple way to get that voice in front of them.
A book that has forever shaped our team is Lead Small. A book that I fell in love with at Orange and has been used at numerous trainings throughout our church.
The resource center at Orange is packed full of things that you can use to invest in your team.
3. Build into yourself
When you improve, your team benefits. This may be one of the few opportunities you get for investment and training. Take advantage of it. Take advantage of the spiritual retreat to worship alongside other church leaders. Ask that question that you want to ask another church leader.
By truly taking the time and being proactive about your own development, your team, your church and the families there will be forever changed.
