Volunteers are crucial in the church environment.  They are often the first people a guest sees.  Volunteers change the entire atmosphere.  Volunteers have the capacity to change a persons day! If they are amazing.

2. Passionate – An amazing volunteer brings their best every time because they want to make a difference.

3. Make no excuses – An amazing volunteer sticks to their commitments! They do their best to make it happen.

4. Champions – An amazing volunteer are champions for the cause.  They are cheerleaders. They thrive on spreading the word.
