Ben Carlson's résumé

Last updated


As reflected on my resume, I have many skills that highlight most qualifications and responsibilities with 10 years of experience in ministry. I excel at administration, developing a scope and sequence for teaching, planning and implementation of a calendar of events, develop and implantation of a budget, plan and execute short term missions’ trips and retreats, active in FCA, equipping of leaders and volunteers, leadership development, contact work, internship coaching, partnering with parents, teachers, as well as communicating mission, vision and strategy to students, parents and volunteers.

I am also a very big Orange Thinker. I have led and equipped leaders to Think Orange and to Lead Small.

I have recruited, trained and equipped volunteers across all platforms and spearheaded creating multiple new volunteer positions and job descriptions in which I casted vision to leadership and staff, and trained the staff and volunteers. I have led many workshops as well as one big on-boarding event for new and seasoned volunteers’ teams each year. I have leveraged the volunteer team leads to think outside the box regarding how they approach recruiting, creating a fun, caring and attractional environment. I also am a big advocate for the Zero Recruiting model in volunteering.
