At each Monthly Gathering, several Community work areas are in need of Willing Servants: Audiovisual, Child Care, Logistics, Social, and Worship.

The community keeps track of the persons who have served as Gathering Willing Servants; being an active Willing Servant, whether at Gatherings or on Walk or Encounter events, is one of the considerations when selecting a community member to serve on an event team.

Below is a description of the Gathering Willing Servant jobs in each area; you are encouraged to contact the Area Chairperson or Coordinator (email addresses below) to get on their lists of volunteers to help at Gatherings. Thank you!

Audiovisual:
Jobs at Gatherings involve setting up the sound equipment, running the sound board, and preparing and running the PowerPoint slides for the song leader. Audiovisual help is needed for events during Walk weekends as well. Interested persons will receive training prior to serving.
