  9. Create, recruit and maintain teams who will weekly contact those checking an interest from the weekend’s connection cards.


Volunteer Ministry Responsibilities

  1. Working with the department leaders and/or pastors to create a dynamic list of volunteer needs for the church while determining a general sense of priorities.  
  2. Evaluate ministry programs for their volunteer needs, along with their ability to use and care for volunteers.
  3. Establish and maintain healthy relationships with congregational members and ministry leaders across campuses and departments.
  4. Work along side staff members involved in the assimilation process to insure new members are active in the ministries of the church.
  5. Strengthen Fellowship One records to consistently capture and maintain information about congregational skills and ministry interests.
  6. Help connect members and regular attenders with known ministry needs.
  7. Keep volunteer needs before the congregation.
  8. Insure that new volunteers in targeted areas are well trained.
  9. Insure that volunteers are appropriately connected to existing department staff and structures for maximum ministry effectiveness.

  11. Evaluate the work of volunteers to insure that work is of appropriate quality and that resources are used effectively.
  12. Respond to volunteer inquiries coming in to the church office or on the weekly connection card.
This position is not necessarily a pastor position, but obviously can be. The AVD will lead the charge for recruitment and training for both areas.
