Unpaid church workers too often serve without proper support and encouragement. These notes provide a checklist of ten actions that churches should be taking.

  1. Christian teaching on discipleship
  2. Prayer
  3. Due recognition
  4. On-going communication
  5. Training
  6. Practical help and resources
  7. Encouragement and thanks
  8. Feedback and correction
  9. Team support
  10. Short-term contracts.

People will offer their time and skills in this busy age, but only if they know that they will be properly supported and not taken advantage of.
