Snack-Sized

Snack Size Videos

If you are leading children’s ministry, your volunteers and leaders need three things from you. One–vision for why they do what they do. Two–training skills. Three—keeping connected with them relationally.

But it is so difficult to get people to attend training events! How do you give them what they need from you if you have so little contact?

Use Snack Sized Videos. These are short and sweet training topics only two or three minutes long. Your people can watch them on their computer, tablet or smart phone. When you send them the link by text or email you can also inspire them with your vision. You can invite personal response and stay connected with them on a more personal level. All this can be done with sending two Snack Sized Videos a month. It’s a simple as sending emails or texts! Before long, you might be making your own Snack Sized Videos to be even more personal in your training tips!

Do you want more explanation? This Workshop audio recording, Train Your Volunteers Online…Simply will help.
