God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. – 1 Peter 4:10
Do you believe that? I do! I believe that each and every person has something to contribute to the church. I believe that YOU have something to offer and I believe that our church will be a better place because of what you contribute. The truth is, we’re better together. When we combine our efforts we produce something far greater than what we can accomplish alone.
I want to invite you to join our team. Our goal is to match people up with serving opportunities that align with their interests and abilities. We want to find the right fit for you. To help us accomplish that, we’ve created a 4 step process.
- Converse – Let’s talk about you. What are you passionate about, what skills do you have, what kind of things do you enjoy doing? Understanding you helps us begin the process of finding a ministry opportunity that’s right for you.
- Observe – Come check it out. Like trying on clothes at the store, this is a chance to try out the ministry to see what you think. We’ll have you shadow an experienced team member and get a feel for what being a part of that team is like.
- Evaluate – Consider your experience. What did you like about the ministry? Anything you disliked? Could you see yourself being a part of that team? Ask yourself some good questions so that you can make an informed decision.
- Commit – Make your decision. Is this the right ministry team for you? If “yes” and you can commit to the team member expectations, it’s time to join the team. If the answer is “no”, that’s fine! You found out something valuable and potentially avoided a bad experience. Time to go back to step 1 and explore another ministry opportunity.
If you’re interested in finding a place to serve, I’d love to talk with you. Please feel free to email (firstname.lastname@example.org) me and we can get the process started.
