For years I've been a huge believer in local/regional events.
One of the best events I’ve ever been a part of is the "Live to Serve" event happening in four locations this February and March. The cool thing it's for volunteers, that's right the folks in the trenches. I am so honored that again I get to be a part of the teaching team of all four of these events.
Live To Serve is a specialized, one day training for kidmin volunteers. I got to help Kenny Conley a little with starting this event and it’s morphed into something wonderful. The best feedback I ever heard from other churches who attended this event preveously were comments about how volunteers who were sitting on the fence or just not as dependable became the most loyal and committed volunteers after this event.
I believe, with all my heart, that the biggest investment you can possibly make into your volunteer team is to send them to Live to Serve. I know, you may be saying, “I don’t have the budget.” Funny thing is that I remember one church outside of Nashville who didn’t have the budget either, but the leader convinced her team that it was worth their day and she brought over 50 who paid their own way… and they probably even got more out of it than anyone else because they had more skin in the game. Most of the same people came back again the next year.
So, if you live within driving distance of:
GET YOUR TEAM IN A VAN AND GET THEM THERE!
It’s a game changer.
Join me and my friends Sue Miller, Adam Duckworth, Amy Fenton, and Matt McKee.
I'd love to meet you personally and get to spend some time with you there
