1 Peter 4:10 says, “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.”
Thank you for taking an interest in volunteering here at New Life! We are extremely grateful that you would consider sharing your talents, skills, gifts and time with those in our community!
I don’t have any experience in volunteering – can I still apply?
Yes, absolutely! This is a great place to get started as we walk you through the process and train you in an area of your interest. AND there are so many different areas to explore – here at New Life, we want to help you find that one you’ll love to serve in!
I’m super busy and I’m worried about overloading my schedule – what are the time commitments like?
We can totally appreciate that you have a busy life and a full schedule! Fortunately, each role has its own flexible time commitments. Some roles are as little as one hour per month, and some are much more involved. There are opportunities to serve on a Sunday, but we also have mid-week opportunities as well! Begin by assessing your available time and which days work best for you, and then we can explore your fit better.
Why am I being asked to provide a vulnerable sector (police) check to volunteer at New Life?
It is our desire to create a safe space for our community to grow in faith, and part of that is creating a standard of care that everyone values and upholds. So, we require all volunteers to complete a screening process that requires a Vulnerable Sector Check and Protection training. It is a high priority for us to protect the vulnerable individuals within our community, and we’re here to equip you to do just that!
What happens if I don’t enjoy the area of volunteering I’ve signed up for?
That’s totally OK! We have many different opportunities available and would love to walk with you through the journey of finding your best fit. If the team you've join isn't turning out to be a good fit, just let your Team Lead know and we will work together to find you something that would work better.
