'...As in most of his other books, this new volume from Hybels take a decidely practical approach as he explains and promotes a substantive Christian concept. He understands the church to be a community of people with a variety of abilities and attributes who are called to serve. Certainly the church has an important 'service' mandate to fulfill. This small book communicates the essential message clearly and compellingly.' (Christian Week
From the Back Cover
The future of the local church is directly tied to its ability to attract, equip, and unleash the potential of volunteers in the church
Pastor Bill Hybels sees a new reality on the horizon. There is unprecedented spiritual openness in todays society, and at the same time, increasing economic pressure on the resources of local churches. The solution lies squarely on the able shoulders of God-gifted volunteers. And they are ready for the challenge! Once trained, empowered, and inspired, record numbers of volunteers will take on all new levels of responsibility in the local church, creating a volunteer revolution that will transform churches and communities.
The Volunteer Revolution reveals how all of this can happen and how churches can unleash vast amounts of untapped potential. Through real-life volunteer stories, Hybels inspires church leaders in their role as equippers while motivating potential volunteers to align themselves with Gods mission to change the world.
The Volunteer Revolution is also available as an unabridged Audio Pages® CD.
