Grow with Me – a Ministry Partner orientation strategy that works

Here is an simple idea for on boarding Ministry Partners that I’ve used for years that really works.  See if it works for you.


Orientation/Training: “Grow With Me”

Upon completing a ministry application and interview, your next step will be to attend an orientation to learn more about your ministry and <name of church>.

<name of church> is a church with many components to learn about.  This is the reason that we developed our “Grow with me” orientation pathway.

At the orientation you will be issued a temporary I.D. and assigned a “Grow with Me” partner.  For the first 30 days, this partner will help you learn everything you need to know about your ministry.  At the end of the 30-day orientation period, you will be assigned a different I.D. and placed into ministry.

Here is the flow of ministry placement: Application, Interview, Orientation, Grow With Me (Interning), and Deployment.


See, I told you it was simple… Don’t over complicate the on boarding environment for Minsitry Partners.
