When you think about recruiting, you can certainly go about it in a lot of ways, but if those ways do not get the attention of the people in your church, you are not likely to end up with a very big response. The reason for this is as follows . . .
- Recruiting = Getting Attention so People Remember and Respond!
- Match your recruiting to the theme of the VBS you decide to use. For example; if you are using a time travel setting, hand out a photo of your church from last year or even a long time in the past with tags which say, “Please be part of our VBS team this year and help us make a difference in our ‘time’!”
- Consider printing table tents which you personally hand to people and ask them to place on their table at home. Print specific things you want people to pray about – including volunteering and ask people to pray for the things you put on the table tent.
