Connect: How to Double Your Number of Volunteers
by Nelson Searcy with Jennifer Dykes Henson

Finding and retaining volunteers can be a frustrating issue for any church leader, but it doesn't have to be such a battle.

In Connect, Nelson Searcy shares his step-by-step approach that equips leaders with the tools they need to create a culture that attracts, keeps, and grows volunteers. Through practical insight, they'll learn how to help people see the importance of serving the local church, to continually involve new volunteers, and even to show gratitude to them.

Learning how to let others participate in the ministry of the church will create a way for people to find their purpose in ministry and open the door to the Kingdom impact God wants for every church.
