Volunteers are a valuable resource for a church. People love to get involved in the church by volunteering, but they simply don’t know where to start. They fear they’ll be placed into a volunteer role that doesn’t match up well with their God-given talents and they’ll be left feeling uncomfortable and ill-equipped.
They can also be put off by inefficient processes that make it difficult for them to know when and where they are scheduled to volunteer.
For staff, managing tens, hundreds, or even thousands of church volunteers across multiple ministries and even multiple campuses can be daunting. Besides the administrative tasks, there are security concerns that must be addressed. Staff must also make sure that volunteers are appropriately matched with tasks that fit their giftings and preferences.
A powerful church management software should be able to address and manage all these concerns. Volunteers Can:
- Apply online
- Receive automatic reminders
