Unleash Your Sneezers
By Jon Nicol
One of my drummers came to me after the service. “Did you know Lisa Jones* has really great voice? I was sitting in front of her during worship – she was harmonizing and everything.”
No. I did not know that. Hmm…
The best recruiters and promoters for your worship team are your worship team. Seth Godin calls them "sneezers."
They’re connected with people that you’re not.
They hear people that you don’t. Think of them like embedded moles spying for your team. (Sorry, I'm watching 24 on Netflix right now…)
And if they love being a part of it, they want others to experience it, too. They won’t be a “recruiter” or a slick salesman. They’re just sharing the love. Hence, sneezing...
Just make sure they understand the qualification process. You don’t want them “signing up” someone before you have a chance to qualify him.
Go ahead. Unleash your sneezers.
*not her real name…wouldn’t want you to find out and come steal her…
Questions: What successes have you had with your team members be the "recruiters"? Any horror stories?
