There's a tendency to believe that the more staff a church has, the more ministry they can get accomplished. However, our experience with hundreds of churches has shown that overstaffing tends to lead to under volunteering. 

In this episode, Tony and Amy conclude our series on volunteering with a conversation about how staffing decisions and strategies impact volunteer engagement.
