Place a banner-type sign on the church property a few weeks before the event. It’s a good reminder to church members, and the change in scenery in front of the church can get the attention of those who drive by.
As your church provides opportunities for volunteers to grow in their understanding of disabilities, remember that professionals who work regularly with people affected by disability can be an excellent resource.
Awareness is the key to recruiting volunteers. Celebrate the launch of the disability ministry by including the entire church.
