1. Know what you are looking for.
Recruit with a purpose and a vision.
2. Look in the Right Places.
You don't just want anyone volunteer in your ministry you want the right ones. To get the right people you have to look in the right places.
3. Your Current Volunteers are the best recruiters you have.
Use your people. People say yes to a friend long before they say yes to someone else. Leverage the influence you have with your current volunteers.
4. Build Relationships:
Those you know are more likely to volunteer than those you do not. Get to know everyone!
5. Create an Exciting environment to serve in:
If the ministry you lead is know as the ministry that has fun and sees lives changed more will come in. The reputation of your ministry is a key part to getting volunteers. Make it a place people want to serve in not feel obligated to serve in.
