How to get Specific about Honoring your Volunteers

One of the best ways to keep volunteers engaged and involved consistently is to honor them and what they do. We all know this. But while simply honoring them very generically may be enough to keep them around, there are more specific ways you can choose to honor your volunteers.

That is why Tom brought in Chad Booher today. Chad is the “Utility Player” at New Life Christian Church. He serves in a variety of roles around the Church but has been effectively working with volunteers in each of the roles.

In this episode Tom and Chat talk about…

  • what Chad does and his background (hint: it wasn’t a ministry job)
  • how he chooses to honor his volunteers
  • how you can be discovering new ways to honor your volunteers.

Chad is a great resource to talk to and would love to talk anytime and even share his excel spreadsheet he has for honoring volunteers. Email him and message him on Facebook and he will get back to you.
