Please note that the goals, anticipated outcomes, and funding strategy/eligibility of the Christian Volunteerism funding focus area were updated Summer 2011.
Goal: To positively impact the lives of hurting people by encouraging and supporting Christian volunteerism in congregations and the community.
Each of us is endowed with gifts to be used to honor and glorify our risen Lord. As Christians, we are called into servanthood. Serving offers an exciting opportunity for ministry as we discover and carry out our unique gifts, thereby building the Body of Christ. Our faith-filled acts of service are living expressions of Christ’s love for us.
Churches are perfect conduits to support congregants as they apply their gifts in service to other members and to the community. These acts of ministry can range from serving as a Sunday school teacher or usher, to assisting with the church's food pantry or after-school program, to organizing outreach ministries to the homeless and unwed mothers, and more.
