TL;DR – I believe great volunteer training is a core competency of a vibrant, biblical, effective church. It’s also one of the hardest things about doing ministry well. So I built TrainedUp to make it easier for ministry leaders to win at volunteer training.
I spoke with a pastor at a ministry conference recently about how his church has “always done” volunteer training. He came up to me after my breakout session, where I talked about scalable volunteer training, to ask a few pointed questions.
In my talk, I’d estimated (based on some cursory research) that attendance at volunteer training events was generally between 60% and 80% of those invite. He told me his attendance was much lower. It was clearly a source of frustration for him.
