Conspire Conference – Point Leader Summit – Session 1

This year, Willow had a Point Leader track that was an option. I took that option (hmmm… obvious from the title). It was at the Renaissance Hotel, and we were in the same room from 9:00 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. Needless to say, it was a LONG day.

The first session was called “Inspiring Your Volunteers” and it was led by Amy Dolan.
The main thrust of the session was to come up with a plan on recruiting, training and inspiring volunteers in different time chunks: once a week, once a season or quarter, and once/twice a year. It was really practical and helpful because she shared some of her recruiting, training and inspiring ideas for each of those time chunks. We were then able to share with each other at our tables and then some shared with the whole group. It really broke down those three areas of volunteerism into easy and doable steps.

I know that you are all waiting for me to write down all the ideas we got, but sorry I’m not going to. But I am sure if you were to sit down with your team or with some other children’s ministry people you could come up with things you could do to recruit, train and inspire volunteers once a week, once a season/quarter and once or twice a year.
