When it comes to volunteers in children’s ministry, there is one issue that I hear about more than any other – that is the issue of how to recruit volunteers. It seems to be a constant problem in the kidmin world, and very few people seem to enjoy it. I can count on one hand (maybe two) people who I would call experts in that field. That is one of the reasons I was excited to see Andy Johnson post a complete FREE volunteer recruiting package several days back on his website.
I have never met Andy Johnson, but I am a fan of what he does. What he does is run a great blog known as Free CM Stuff for which he scours the internet for the best FREE resources for those of us who work in children’s ministry. I have followed Andy’s blog for quite a while, and he has pointed me towards a multitude of wonderful resources.
In addition to a recruiting video (included below), the package includes an 8.5 x 11 logo as reflected above, an 11 x 17 logo for use as a wall poster, and a bulletin insert that can be customized to fit your children’s ministry. Finally, Andy took the video filmed for their annual Children’s Ministry Volunteer Recruitment Campaign and made it generic so that you can use it in your church.
If you decide to use the video, or any of the other components, make sure to go over to Andy’s original post and let him know how grateful you are for all his hard work!
