Volunteers always start out serving with the best of intentions. They arrive full of passion for mission, a heart to serve, and a desire to connect. But over time this enthusiasm fades and many volunteers end up quitting, burned out by the pressures of ministry. But it doesn't have to be like this! A good leader can work alongside his or her volunteers to help keep that enthusiasm alive, feeding both the ministry and the volunteers themselves.
This 20-page resource is designed to help you develop and train volunteers who will dig into the work of your ministry and stick with it for years to come.
