Sunday Scripture: Serve

This past week I had the honor of accompanying the other leaders in my church to a leadership conference in Charlotte, NC at Elevation Church.  It was a whirlwind two days full of campus tours, Q & A sessions, breakouts, worship music and inspiration.  Although their church is a lot different than ours, I really soaked up the basic principles of how they run the logistics of their children’s ministry, and how they treat their staff and volunteers.

I was intrigued how they were able to obtain and retain so many volunteers…and many of them commit to an entire year’s worth of teaching Sunday School.  Some of this is due to the fact that Elevation Church has many, many different worship opportunities…so the volunteers never have to sacrifice their own worship experience.  But I loved how the church cared for their servants.  Full meals, childcare, counseling, celebrating birthdays, etc.  Many of the same things that we do as well…but my main take-away is that we need to do better.  How can we love on our volunteers and let them know how much we appreciate them?

Does your church or workplace do something cool for your staff?  Please leave me some ideas!

Have a blessed week!
