Here is one way that I think is incredible:

  1. Great video!

    I try to thank our volunteers in these different ways:

    1) End of year party to highlight how God has been at work, spotlight key volunteers, general “thank-you” to everyone, fun games, prizes, etc.

    2) 2x a year large-group training to equip and encourage.

    3) Monthly podcast to focus on one key CM principle and thank everyone for their hard work.

    4) Every week I write 1 hand-written thank-you note to 1 volunteer, staffer, and parent/child.
