Volunteers amaze me.
Volunteers humble me.
Volunteers bless me.
The local church cannot function without the loyal and dedicated volunteers who carry on the leadership and mission of ministry. I’m amazed at how hard volunteers work. Their passion humbles me and their contribution to the Kingdom is a blessing that stirs my soul.
I could brag on any number of the teams at 12Stone Church, but for this post, let me say that the Set Up and Tear Down teams at our mobile campuses amaze, humble and bless me. Without them, there is no church. Showing up about 5:45 AM they begin to unload trucks with trailers packed full with everything from high-end tech gear to children’s equipment. With precision teamwork, it comes together nearly flawlessly, and then they pack it all back up in trucks and trailers that afternoon. 52 times a year. It’s an honor to be part of the organization called the local church, with people like that!
