Finding the right people to share the ministry load can be difficult and frustrating, but is also the most rewarding thing that we can do as ministry leaders. After all, ministry is not about filling seats or getting tasks done, it’s about people.

We should never be recruiting in order to get a job done, but we should be recruiting that more people have the opportunity to enter into some form of discipleship.

If our recruiting is driven by discipleship, it should motivate us to constantly bring new people into our organization, never cease growing, and work to find a place for as many people as possible in our ministries.
