The Volunteer Management Toolkit

Resources to help you recruit and retain volunteers

Every church needs a committed volunteer base to achieve its vision at weekly services and special events. Your volunteers greet church visitors, take care of children, seat guests and much more. You're constantly in need of additional help and we've all seen many volunteers start off excited to serve and then drop-off quickly. Based on her extensive experience as a volunteer and volunteer manager, Deborah Wipf has developed this toolkit as a step-by-step guide to developing and improving your volunteer program. Complete with templates and sample volunteer job descriptions, this goes way beyond theory and into the practical day-to-day application of getting and keeping volunteers. Whether you're just starting out or need to breathe new life into your volunteer program, this toolkit will help you get on the right track to a healthy and successful volunteer team.

The Volunteer Management Handbook 

Over the last ten years, Deborah has worked in the for-profit arena developing the skills needed to pursue her passion.  She worked for Deloitte Consulting in their Strategy & Operations group and most recently, for Williams, as a project manager and risk manager.  Deborah has a bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems along with the Project Management Professional (PMP) credential from the Project Management Institute.  She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the PMI Tulsa Chapter and volunteers at her church.
