UGM is very thankful for the many, many Volunteers who serve the Lord through the Mission. We can honestly say that we would be unable to do what we do if it weren’t for our Volunteers. So, right from the top – thank you to all of you who help us out without being a ‘drain on the payroll’!
And – we’re always looking for others who are looking to Volunteer. Whether individually, or as part of a group, we can use your help. We have specific tasks that you can help us with, or – and this is a new direction for us – you can tell us what your interests & strengths are, and we’ll look at creating an opportunity for you to use those.
But, we have to be a bit careful in accepting Volunteers. Because we work with so many people who deal with addictions, or are affected by them, and because we desire to see everyone we work with come to know Jesus Christ as their Saviour, there are certain qualifications that a Volunteer must meet. They are –
a) You need to be born again & passionate about living for God.
b) You need to be a part of an evangelical Church.
c) You need to agree with our Statement of Faith.
d) You cannot be a smoker or user of illegal drugs.
e) You cannot be a drinker of alcoholic beverages for most volunteer opportunities. Areas where exceptions will be considered will be noted on the volunteer listing.
We realize that these qualifications may create a limitation of sorts, but the last thing that we want to see happen is to have Volunteers (and staff) derail the purposes of our Mission – to help people come to know Jesus Christ, and to find deliverance in Him. For more clarification on this, see the last paragraph on our EMPLOYMENT page, or contact us directly.
You can volunteer in one of 2 ways –
a) As part of a group (small group, youth group, etc.)
