Overview

Children’s pastors and ministry leaders consistently point to recruiting and retaining dedicated volunteers as their number-one challenge. How can they keep volunteer workers engaged in ministry that will change peoples’ lives?
 

Larry Fowler, Director of Program and Training for Awana Clubs International, believes that there are seven biblical principles, drawn from the book of Nehemiah, that will help pastors and leaders more effectively motivate and manage volunteers. Rock-Solid Volunteers looks at the obstacles Nehemiah and his volunteer workers faced - fatigue, weakness, loss of vision, peer pressure and opposition, just for starters!—and examines the seven steps Nehemiah took to lead his volunteers to success. Pastors and ministry leaders will be equipped to attract, inspire and keep talented, committed volunteers, no matter the challenge!

    I Also Recommend:

    A book worth reading that has a solid Biblical core

    Larry Fowler encourages me every time I listen to him or shake his hand. In Rock Solid Volunteers he wonderfully draws truth, encouragement and easy principles from the evidence from Nehemiah. I loved this book because it was straight from the Bible. I have read and studied Nehemiah's leadership and planning principles many times and yet Larry taught me several things that I just flat our missed. I can't wait to put them in to practice in my church's AWANA ministry and my own life. Ok, books have to accomplish several things to be any good, worth reading, worth owning, worth re-reading and then worth recommending. This one accomplished that and more. Number one: Biblical. I only want to read and suggest books to people that are more God's truth than man's opinions. Done. This one is solid Bible through and through. Number two: Quick. I like books that flow well, read quick and steady, organize thoughts that I can remember and apply. Done. I can remember the things I need to do in ministry from this book by simply remembering the flow of Nehemiah's story. Finally, I like books that translate instantly into my life's needs. Done, I needed a fresh boost of energy concerning my volunteers and for me, a volunteer too. These seven simple and instantly achievable principles are just what I needed. Now, let's see, I've got a wall to finish. Hey, are you still sitting there? Go get the book. See you at the wall.
