Imagine with me your Church is a large ship. Now it can either be a cruise ship, where people come in every Sunday to relax and be waited on hand & foot…or it can be a battle ship where it’s a “All hands on deck” atmosphere. An interesting statistic about serving/volunteering at Church is…only 43% of people serve in some regular capacity in their Church…with the top 10% doing 72% of the majority work. That leaves a whole lot of people with a whole lot of gifts & talents just languishing away. Serving/volunteering at Church really needs to be looked at as a form of discipleship and spiritual growth, not as some menial task I’ve been asked to do. Just think about it, the Twelve Disciples worked side by side with Jesus everyday…caring for others, serving the needy, and acting in the best interest of the less fortunate. It was a “All hands on deck” kind of Ministry they were involved in…and look what they learned from it.
