Volunteers are BUSY — it’s getting harder and harder to get everyone together for training and encouragement. Brian Bierenga, the Children & Youth Ministry Coordinator at Brookside CRC uses weekly email/messaging to encourage his youth team. Every Thursday his leaders count on hearing from him. His formula is simple: a summary of what’s happening on Sunday, something that points to the ministry’s vision, and a success story from the previous week.
That last part is my favorite. It’s a little reminder that what we do matters. Kids are encountering Christ, kids are growing in faith, kids are being shaped by God — and we get to be part of it!
How do you use email, Facebook, or messaging to encourage your leaders?
