In the second episode of How We Do Digital Ministry, Deacon Mary Stoneback shares how she and her team at Ascension Lutheran in Colorado Springs have learned to be flexible when working with online and remote volunteers.

“Find a few members who are interested in contributing in some way, and work with them, and then go from there. We have times of plenty and we have times of less, and that I think is the rhythm of the church and working with volunteers, and the flexibility to know they can come back.”
