Church leaders are no longer on their own. You name the volunteer
challenge, and Group’s Church Volunteer Central can help you solve

It’s all there, right at your fingertips: Training tools.
Motivation ideas. Retention strategies. Handbooks, job
descriptions, applications, certificates, and interview templates.
Evaluations. All kinds of pre-made forms. You can access an
incredibly large amount of content through our online pages –
literally thousands of articles, forms, and more-that will be
continually growing week after week.

What’s especially unique about this service is that it gives you
personalized, custom help for any challenge you face. Here’s an
overview of some of the key features.

• Hundreds of fresh, field-tested ideas for recruiting, training,
motivating, and retaining volunteers — all easily searchable by
key words.
• Customizable tools like volunteer handbooks, job descriptions,
applications, and interview forms. You just add your church name
and details to solve your unique situation with these tools as a
starting point.
• Thorough background checks that are simple, quick, and easy to

research: criminal, driving, or credit records.

and communication efforts. You receive customizable email to
forward to just the right people.
• Online training for specific volunteer positions, along with
self-graded evaluations. You forward the online content with a

who’s completed the training and how they fared.

schedule your volunteers online.

stickiest of situations.

Volunteer Central for only $99.99 (regular membership cost is

staff and all your volunteers.

(Also, Group customers get the added convenience of one-stop
monthly billing on their Group account.)

What if you could double the number of your volunteers? What could
you accomplish? How would your church grow? How many lives could be
transformed? Can you imagine it?
