Equipping Volunteers Who Lead

YoungLife Training Timeline: Equipping Volunteers Who Lead

These are the power points from our classes held in Colorado Springs February 2015

Three essentials in Equipping Volunteers who Lead:

1) GAIN— if we recruit then it is a conditional relationship and on us to keep the volunteer,  if we Gain who God is calling to minister then we merely keep blowing wind in their sails to keep them on course to serve God.

2) TRAIN  – the world is not short of Christian Leadership Content but its the end in mind of training that matters — is it about Standard Operating Procedure and Reflexive Leadership, equipping them to do greater things  as well as a succession plan or is it to make sure the “your” metrics can be met by “your” volunteer workers?

3) SUSTAIN – retaining leaders sounds like it is defensive, sustaining leaders sounds like you are serving, thanking and encouraging them to flourish!
