Ephesians 4:1 Leaders are actually a gift, given to the church Verse 12 of Ephesians 4 says that He has laid out a path for you to serve In the church our job is to equip others to live their best life, a life that is fully engaged How do you Figure Out What Your Calling is? As a Christ follower you've been given unique gifts that need to be used in the local church Find them in relationships with others in community who will say, I see this... happening in you We need to affirm gifts in others Think about the people we are leading through this lens, what do we think their spiritual gifts are Speak that out to people, lift one another up Let others know what you see in them Serve, even in areas that might not be your gifting, but find a place to plug in and start Pursue and understand your spiritual gifts but also be willing to serve where needed Part of the process of learning your spiritual gifts is just trying things out  Help Others There is joy and freedom in serving Be other centred, that's how we find freedom and joy in serving We are just called to serve and ultimately lay down our lives  Favourite Passage Sermon on the mount Matt 5 to 7 Ask what is it that Jesus is calling us to do Then look at everything through that lens Its amazing that we can keep coming back to the same words and it always impacts our lives  Ways to Encourage and Connect Send cards, keep a running pile ready to go and schedule a time to do it be so thankful to those choosing to volunteer God is so excited when we take a step towards Him and serve Mindset issue Challenge yourself as a leader All the volunteers have other things that they could be doing We need to let them know we are desperately thankful for them Be constantly encouraging Say I saw you, you did something and this is the difference that it made What's the environment like when others arrive Making that thing that was internal, external  Best Practices to Help Those That are Serving Go out of our way to articulate what to expect for volunteers Be really clear with people when you communicate Clearly lay out what to wear and where to put their stuff Talk them through everything, for example make a video to clearly show them what it will look like  To Those That Have NOT Been Serving but are Thinking of Coming Back You as an individual, are missing out Our lives need to be oriented around other people The church does need you We need people that will be part of the team to make the mission happen We need you to serve before people will come back Thanks for listening!

Leading Simple with Rusty George

Churches are finally open, mask rules are waning, and the season of Covid is slowly but surely coming to an end. Praise the Lord! But even though this pandemic season is getting better by the day, churches, pastors, and church go-ers have been forever changed by the impact that the last year and a half has had. In today's episode, my friend Rich Birch from unSeminary joins me to discuss the one thing that every pastor needs to be thinking about post-Covid -- and trust me, it's a game changer. You don't want to miss hearing it. Rich also shares great insight on the importance of volunteering at a church, the best ways to serve online, and more helpful advice for how church members can make a helpful difference now that churches are faced with this new normal.
