What's the best way to get to know volunteers when you don't have a lot of time for socializing?
Maybe people could come 15 or 20 minutes earlier or stay a little bit longer, and go around in a circle and just ask each other some simple questions: "What was the high point for you last week and what was the low point?" "How specifically can we pray for you this week?" And as soon as you ask a question like that, you're going to get something substantive out of that person's life that will then allow you to know them a little better.
Volunteers are longing for this so much, because God wired us up to want community. If they're going to walk away feeling more known, they will give a little more time.
So how about you, gifted women: How well do you know your volunteers? How might deeper community with them impact your leadership?
