Include job title, who the person is responsible to, what their responsibilities are, time required each week, training required and qualifications needed.
Identify potential volunteers
Look through your church directory and match spiritual gifts and skills with the needs. Try to also determine their passion, interests and availability. Choose the best person for the job, don't just fill the job. Don't be afraid to identify people with potential and encourage them to try something new. Beware too of people who say yes just to please you or because they feel guilty.
Determine plan of recruitment
There are so many ways to communicate these days. Initial contacts may be made by phone, email, Facebook text or in person. However, if even a little interest is there, a face to face appointment should be made.
Talk to prospective volunteer
Before you meet, pray about your time together. Present the importance of the position and indicate that they have been prayerfully selected. Present the job description, making sure you describe any curriculum or resources that will be used. Explain what training is required as well as what supervision is available. Answer their questions and quell their fears. Show them that you believe in them and encourage them to consider taking the position but do not pressure them. Then give time to pray about it. The volunteer should come away feeling honored to be asked and excited about the possibility of serving.
Recruiting takes time and energy and cannot be done by simply making an announcement of need from the pulpit. As with most things, the more you put into it, the better the results.
