The ministry of Christianityworks reaches far and wide. And whilst we have a small paid staff, we rely on many faithful volunteers, without whom we simply wouldn’t be able to do what we do.
And in the UK, we have another volunteer – Sarah – who helps type transcripts of each of our radio programs. Sarah is legally blind, yet she is one of our very best transcription volunteers.
Wow! So … the only qualifications for becoming a volunteer are:
- being a passionate disciple of Jesus Christ
- being hard working and reliable (this is very important), and
- having one of the skills that we are currently in need of.
So, check out the list below. If you feel that you fit the bill on one or more, then contact us. We would love to hear from you.
Office Assistant – Eastern Suburbs of Sydney
Each month from our office in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney (conveniently located just metres from Bondi Junction Railway Station) we undertake a mailout to our many friends and supporters across the country. The sorting, collating, folding and mailing of these letters is performed by a small, hard-working and dedicated band of local volunteers.
We also, from time to time throughout each month, require assistance in clerical and administrative tasks.
If you live within easy travel distance of Bondi Junction and have a day or half-day that you can give on a regular, reliable basis, we would love to hear from you.
Proof Reader – Location Independent
Christianityworks produces many publications – booklets, books and ePublications. These are written by our ceo + Bible teacher Berni Dymet. They require meticulous proof reading, and generally, we have several people proof read each publication.
Proof reading is a very specific skill – requiring a strong command of the English language, an eye for detail and the ability to accept the individual approach and style of the author.
If you have these skills, we would love to hear from you. This work is “ad hoc” on an as required basis and, so long as you have access to email, can be performed anywhere in the world.
Audio to Text Transcription – Location Independent
Each year Christianityworks produces several hundred radio programs – a weekly 30 minute program called “Christianityworks”, a daily 10 minute program called “A Different Perspective” and a range of other program formats.
We have volunteers across Australia and around the globe, who use audio dictaphone software which we provide, on their computers to listen to each message and produce a text transcript.
These transcripts are used on this website, and sometimes form the starting point for printed publications.
If you have experience and skills in this area, it may be that you could form part of this dedicated band of volunteers.
Social Media – Location Independent
We are looking for a social media savvy individual who can help to promote the many teaching programs of Christianityworks through social media.
If you love social media, have specific skills in the use of social media to gain a following and engage with that following, are reliable and dependable and have the heart to contribute just a few hours this week, this volunteer role could be for you.
We do not accept every offer of volunteer work. Sometimes, our needs in the areas outlined above are fully met.
And, of course, the tasks performed by volunteers, whilst unpaid, are critical to the operations of the ministry. We therefore need to ensure that each individual has the skills, the heart for the ministry, and the dedication and reliability required to meet these demands.
Whilst we greatly appreciate all offers of assistance, we have in the past relied on people who “failed to deliver”. So we hope that you will understand that there is a process of selection and confirmation of all volunteers.
