Building Your Volunteer Team

Building Your Volunteer Team

Due to CDC recommendations of gatherings no larger than 50 people, we are rescheduling all of our on-site workshops and luncheons. We will be holding free live online events starting this week and throughout the next few months, and these events will be free of charge. We will announce the line-up of events soon.

If you are already registered for an event, we will communicate directly to you soon about refunds and attendance options. We look forward to serving you through this difficult period. If you have questions, please reach out directly to Matt Burke at


Recruiting and retaining volunteers is challenging. Ideally, you’d love to have the people with the perfect passions and skill sets in your volunteer positions. Often though, you’re likely scrambling to fill spots in your programs. 

Join Annette Safstrom from Ministry Architects as she shares her 30+ years of experience in volunteer and staff roles to help you understand and execute a volunteer recruitment plan.

Date and time: 9 a.m.-4 p.m. (Central time) Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at the Old Post Office Event Center in Evansville

Best for: congregational leaders, staff and laity seeking to generate more volunteer engagement

Outline of the day:

  • A proven six-step recruiting plan
  • Tools to fully staff your volunteer team with effective volunteers
