How many times have you sent out your monthly volunteer schedule for lectors, ushers, nursery helpers, etc. only to have at least one person respond that they had a conflict? In trying to fill that spot, you’ve had to rearrange the schedule only to have others respond with conflicts. If your church or parish is like mine it happens too frequently, especially around holidays and summer vacations. It almost becomes comical trying to finalize a schedule, unless you’re the one responsible for the schedule!
Now Realm® Connect and Multiply churches can utilize the newly released features in Volunteer Management to simplify the entire process for both staff and congregants.
- Publish new and updated volunteer schedules
- Enable requests to serve
- Receive alerts for preferences and conflicts

Creating volunteer schedules for any church event or role within your church will be a snap using Realm Volunteer Management. The tools you and your congregants have available will eliminate the time-consuming back and forth and allow you to focus on your ministry.
