Have you wanted to provide an opportunity for your volunteers to learn more about children’s ministry but they seem to be too busy? Have you ever hosted a training event that you were excited about, but hardly anyone showed up? If so, then you’re not alone.
One of our God-given responsibilities, as leaders in the church, is to equip others to do the work of the ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12). We all know this. The problem is that many people today are so busy, it is often difficult to provide them with the needed training, without “infringing” on their already full schedules.
That being said, email is a great way to communicate with your volunteers and you can utilize it to train them.
If you visit Mailchimp.com and sign up for an account, you can build an email list and send out emails, using templates that make them look great.
Since you are reading this, I’m guess that you already frequent blogs. When you find a great article that would help your volunteers, save the link and put it in an email template. Spend a week or two accumulating links and, once you have a small list of helpful resources and articles, send it to them.
Sending these types of things to further develop your volunteers is beneficial, because they can read they types of articles that interests them and they can do so on their own schedules.
