Many people who would love to give back to their community are often discouraged by myths around volunteering. Similarly, church leaders often make assumptions about their community and outreach potential. Let’s break down the mindsets around volunteering and show you what’s really behind these common myths.
Myth #1: “I’d love to give back but I feel like I don’t have enough time. I don’t think I can commit to something long term.”
Myth #2: “There are so many problems in the world. I don’t think I can make much of a difference.”
The reality: The state of the world can feel immense at times but we don’t have to bear it alone. Remind your members they have other good people around to help them. On their own, it can seem harder to plant seeds of faith, but by working together, they can spread the Gospel effectively. Help your people connect with the mission, start small, create the good, and remind them one act of kindness can create a ripple effect that positively impacts everyone around them.
