It ain't easy. At least that's what churches are telling us. And add a pandemic on top of that, well, it's even harder.
But does it have to be?
How many churches have a Recruitment Strategy? Which ones have a Nominating Committee to oversee recruitment? How are members informed about vacant council positions? What is the prayer strategy when it comes to recruitment? When does recruitment typically take place? How are members inspired and equipped to let their name stand?
A couple years ago we put together some helpful recruitment resources. We want to help churches find the right people at the right time for the right positions. We encourage you to take a look at these - any time of the year since we believe you never stop recruiting for next year's council members. While some suggestions may not work right now during Covid-19, we encourage deacons and council members to GET CREATIVE and not let this get in their way!
