There are lots of reasons to volunteer. To make friends. To serve God. To make a difference. Because someone asked you to. But no matter what got you started, there are ways to make your time as a volunteer positive and beneficial for all.

We all want our church or ministry to succeed in its role to love, serve, and edify God's people--and as a volunteer you're an integral part of that! The Volunteer Survival Guide answers the questions you have (and the questions you didn't even think to ask) about your role, including

· What does it take to be a great volunteer?
· How can you be the ultimate team player?
· What do you uniquely bring to the table?
· Does what you do matter?
· How can you grow into leadership?
· and many more

Whether you've just started as a volunteer or you've been serving for decades, this book will help you make the most of the experience.
