Overview

Consistent volunteer training benefits everyone in your ministry, but how can you schedule training so people will attend? The primary reason people cite for not attending training sessions—no matter how creatively organized or well advertised—is that they're too busy. So why not schedule your training sessions at a time that's already blocked out for church activities? Sunday morning, if organized well, may be the right time to add welcome training to your children's ministry.

This tool is adapted from "Design a Volunteer Training Program for Sunday Mornings," a PromiseLand Conference workshop by Sandy Sieber, Robin Geitner, and David Weil. PromiseLand is a ministry of the Willow Creek Association.

This Resource contains all of the following:
