A Brigada reader mentioned the book Do Something, Make Your Life Count when asked how their church mobilizes for local missions.  This book, written by Miles McPherson, has powerful true stories, illustrations from the life of Christ, and specific activities for readers to engage in.  It sounds like a good resource for mobilizing local volunteers.  http://www.bakerpublishinggroup.com/books/do-something/319264.
