Volunteering in the church has a spiritual benefit. Through volunteering a person will mostly want to dive deeper into church life. Also, they serve not only as an assisting hand but also as a witness of the gospel message within the community. Although people volunteer in church and willing to give their time in church, it can be hard to align schedules and balance other obligations. In this paper, I will select an idea from the readings given and then I will describe my thoughts and feelings about the idea from the readings.One of the ideas that I got from the reading is that it is important to provide training to the volunteers of the church so that to accomplish the mission of the church. In churches, most of the volunteers are charged with complex tasks that take most of the knowledge and understanding to do appropriately. Most of the people who will be volunteering in a church may lack most of the needed skills. When a church many individuals with similar skills, the group may want to have some kind of formal training program (Ctb, 2021). When a church trains its volunteers then they will be equipped with the necessary required in performing their task and this will improve their performance. When a volunteer is not trained then without knowledge of what they are supped to perform their task may make them feel less motivated, since performing a task that one does not have knowledge of might be very challenging.There are many reasons and importance why a church should train its volunteers. It the leaders responsibility to ensure that volunteers have the training and tools to perform the needed tasks with confidence. Before the volunteers can start contributing, they must be trained. They should be provided with a clear job description; the church should ensure that they have defined the roles that the volunteer is needed to do. The reason why the volunteers should be trained is constancy in practice. Training is the basis for developing a culture of quality something all churches should aim for. Those volunteers who have learning experience that are same will carry out the task and respond to the work environment in the same way. When the volunteers are trained, the church should use similar curriculum and training methods. This will bring about everyone doing things similar way which makes sure that there is consistency in practice.Also, when the volunteers are trained, they gain confidence in doing task duties. Self-confidence comes from an internal belief and trust in ones ability to do things well and that assurance is created through skill and training practice. Also, when volunteers are trained the church can assess their performance. With this, the volunteers performance is evaluated against training objectives. When the volunteers are trained, they feel valued, they value the effort and time that goes into an effective and organized training experience. The structured training does not only assist in preparing volunteers for job responsibilities but also makes them feel valued. A significant training experience is creating by presciently sharing information that will assist the volunteers in their role. The orientation and training assist the volunteers to gain insights into the role and responsibilities and the anticipated outcomes of the assignment.The goal of creating good training is to give the volunteers the minimum guidance, instruction, and information necessary in completing the assignment well, all while assisting the volunteers in gaining confidence. The ongoing training concentrates on the development of life skills, assisting the volunteers to become a better version of themselves. This kind of training communicates that the church cares about its volunteers as an individual’s not just in a ministry capacity. Training of volunteers in the church sharpens their spiritual sensitivity and also their ministerial skills. Churches assume that individuals of faith will have the kind of commitment skills and expertise automatically that are required to carry out whatever is asked of them. Although, this is not the case, to ensure that volunteers perform their tasks effectively they must be provided with the required knowledge and skills.
