I’ve almost always said yes to this question, minus a few exceptions, but I’m curious what you guys think.
If someone wants to be a volunteer leader at your church do you think they should also be members of the church? Do they need to come every weekend? Where do you draw the line?
There’s a difference between working the parking lot and mentoring students, so where does that play out?
Maybe a scenario would help: If you were a youth pastor and you had a great leader who led a small group for some of your students every Wednesday night, but went to the church down the street on Sundays, would you be OK with it?
Let me know what you think!
