Volunteering: What's in It for Me?

Posted by Austin Taylor

Find me on:

Sometimes when we talk with people who are interested in volunteering at Life.Church Online, we notice something. They tell us that they love our mission, that they’re passionate about sharing God’s love, and that they have a heart to serve…but we can sense that there’s an unanswered question in the back of their minds:

“What’s in it for me?”

Maybe you’ve wondered that, too. If so, we totally understand! And we love answering this question, because believe it or not, there’s actually a lot in it for you. Here are just four of the ways we know you’ll benefit from volunteering with us:

  1. You’ll make new friends all over the world.

We currently have volunteers in over 40 countries around the world and they’re some of the coolest people you’ll ever meet. You’ll make lifelong friends in countries like Kenya, Australia, the UK, and Peru as you serve with our global team. I mean, what’s more awesome than getting to say, “Brb, jumping on a Skype call to pray with my friend in Italy”? If you love meeting new people and learning about other cultures, this is the jackpot! 

  1. You’ll have a global impact from wherever you live.

Are you passionate about seeing Muslims come to Christ? Have you always wanted to encourage new believers in Africa? Would you like to pray with Christians in China whose faith puts their safety in danger? You’ll get to be part of moments like these from day one. Each time you volunteer, you’ll be taking a digital mission trip into every country in the world.

  1. You’ll gain invaluable ministry skills and experience.

If someone told you they were suicidal right now, would you know how to help them? How about if they recently experienced a miscarriage, or if they’re addicted to pornography? Our free ministry training will equip you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence you need to share the hope of Christ with a lost and hurting world.

  1. You’ll experience deep joy as God uses you to change lives.

Nothing is more fun than serving God with people you love! There’s nothing quite like celebrating when people accept Jesus as their Savior and knowing that you and your team played a part in that decision. As a volunteer, you’ll laugh until your stomach hurts, you’ll cry tears of happiness, and you’ll never be the same, because God changes lives each time you serve—and the first life He changes is always your own.

So, what are you waiting for? Come join us and experience a new level of community, global impact, ministry experience, and joy in your life. We can’t wait to welcome you onto the team!
