I travel a lot for ministry. I shouldn’t, but I eat way too many meals in my car. I know that I should stop and eat something good for me, but too often I’d rather be home sooner, so I hit the closest drive through. I’ve even added an office-sized wastebasket to the back seat of my car to handle all the trash and Starbucks cups that accumulate after several days on the road. But when I finally pull into my driveway, the last thing I want to do is empty my trash. I want to see my wife, my kids, or my granddaughter who might be in the house. But I’ve learned that the best time to clean out my car is right when I get home, for a lot of reasons.
When is the best time to recruit volunteers for your children’s ministry?
