Every pastor would say they could always use more help. More volunteers. Well, check out this clip from NBC Nightly News. It tells of the increasing trend of volunteers investing their time and their own resources towards the political campaign of their choice.
What a challenge! If a political candidate can rally individuals toward a cause that can, at best, promise better taxes and healthcare, how much more could the church? I think part of increasing volunteerism in your church is selling the cause. Individuals today (especially young adults & teenagers) will willingly give up valuable time and even personal resources for a cause they truly believe in. All we have to do is give them something valuable to invest into. (I know, it’s easier said than done!)
