Huddle Meetings

Every weekend, all of our volunteer teams meet in huddles, about 40 minutes before the service begins. These huddles last about 10 minutes, and they are a valuable time for leaders to connect with their volunteer teams. I believe short bursts are often better than lengthy training meetings. We adapted the format of these meetings from Newspring. Every huddle meeting contains the following:

Vision – remind people that their volunteer team helps advance the mission of Oak Leaf Church. Tell “mission accomplished” stories

Information – Let people know what they need to know. Talk about things that are changing or improving.

Prayer – Pray for each other, for the weekend services, and for anything specific.

VIP. Pretty simple format to a pretty important weekly meeting.
