Every ministry leader is constantly trying to process how we can better train our volunteers. I have an idea I want to share with you and it’s a conference designed and priced for your volunteers called illuminate. Our family ministry team checked the experience out last year and we were kicking ourselves we did not have our volunteer team with us. This experience will inspire and equip your volunteers to come back to your church and serve with passion. We are taking 50 of our volunteer team to the conference and we hope to see you there. Check out some of the speakers lined up to invest in your volunteers if you bring them.
