Encouraging Your Volunteers

Jun 6, 2022    Pastor Jackson Garrell

Leadership is all about being a good steward of your influence. When you steward your influence well, you will elevate your leaders and volunteers to help them achieve their greatest potential. In the eyes of ancient Israel, Moses was the ultimate expression of a leader. After leading many incredible advances for God's people,


Moses accomplished something that many leaders struggle with. He pulled off a seamless and successful succession of power. He helped His people follow his protege, Joshua, into the Promised Land. How did he do it| With encouragement? Let's study Deuteronomy 31 to unpack two practical approaches for empowering and encouraging leaders.


Discussion Guide:

Ice Breaker: Introduce yourself and share your highs and lows from the week.

Q1: What is the current attitude of the leaders and volunteers in your ministry?

Q2: Do you think providing more encouragement and empowerment for your leaders and volunteers could improve the culture and impact of your ministry?

Q3: What are ways you do|can encourage your leaders publicly?

Q4: What are ways you do|can encourage your leaders privately?

Q5: What obstacles can get in the way of you taking time to encourage your leaders|


Application: Identify 1 leader in your ministry team that you can encourage publicly, and 1 leader you can encourage privately. Intentionally encourage those two leaders this week.


Next Step: Set up a Pastoral Support call with our team to come up with different, noticeable, and memorable ways to encourage your leaders.
