Leading Not Normal Volunteers

Authors: Sue Miller, Adam Duckworth

So you lead volunteers. You lead the quirky, the crazy, and the amazingly incredible. Your volunteers are essential and you know that. They have skills, wisdom, experience, and the desire to do something significant. You couldn’t do ministry without these volunteers, but they probably couldn’t do their best work without you either. You are in the best position to show them just how much of a difference they can make.

In Leading Not Normal Volunteers, Sue Miller and Adam Duckworth show you how to lead your volunteers in practical and unexpected ways, how to leverage their quirks, and how to equip them to
become incredible volunteers.

Leading Not Normal Volunteers is the companion volume to Not Normal: Seven Quirks of Incredible Volunteers, written especially for volunteers.

    Sue Miller is a teacher, leader, speaker, and author with a passion for bringing out the best in volunteers. Much of that passion developed over the 17 years she served as children’s ministry director at Willow Creek Community Church near Chicago, Illinois. Her ongoing challenge was to figure out how to recruit, grow, and keep a fantastic team of volunteers that could influence the faith of the 3,000 kids that attended each weekend. She also served on the senior management team under the leadership of pastor Bill Hybels, a champion of volunteerism.

    In 2005, Sue joined Orange and has been thinking Orange from head to toe when it comes to church strategy.

    When not working, Sue lives with her handsome husband, Rick, in a fixer-upper house in Atlanta, Georgia. She does life with her two favorite adult kids, one amazing son-in-law, a mischievous black mini schnauzer, and two of the most incredible grandsons on the planet. You can follow Sue @SueMiller01.
