10 Reasons Your Children’s Ministry Lacks Enough Volunteers

Children's ministry
Why do you think your children's ministry lacks the sufficient amount of volunteers? (Lightstock)

Don't have enough volunteers?  It may be because of one or more of these reasons.

1. You're not asking.
You're not inviting people to join your team. Week in, week out, you've got to invite, invite, invite. You have not because you ask not. The best way to build a volunteer team is personal one-on-one invites. 

2.You're not praying for volunteers. What did Jesus say to do when the "laborers are few?"  He told us to, "pray to the Lord of the harvest that He would send laborers" into His harvest fields. Spend time each day asking God to send you volunteers. Jesus wouldn't ask us to pray for something He didn't intend on giving us.

3. You're not casting vision.
People are drawn toward vision.  Stop using words like, "need, help, please" and start using words like, "impact, opportunity and make a difference."
