What your church does for kids is critical to the mission and vision of your church. However, how your church does what it does for kids is just as critical! Whether your church has 10 kidmin volunteers or 1000, it’s critical that everyone is on the same page. Does every volunteer know what they are supposed to do? Does every volunteer know what they are not supposed to do? Do your volunteers know how their part works with other parts to achieve success? What about when emergencies happen, does everyone know what they are supposed to do?
This is why your ministry needs a policy manual. Call it a volunteer handbook if you like. Regardless, the best way to get everyone on the same page and to ensure that every volunteer will meet desired expectations is to train your volunteers around your ministry policies and guidelines. You don’t have to start from scratch, just borrow from the documents shared below!
