Volunteer Chaplains Program
Volunteer Chaplaincy programs present opportunities for churches, Industries and agencies to use this training to put themselves in the marketplace and being effective tools for the Lord.
This training focus on the Discover, Develop and Deploy Principle of the Lord Jesus' ministry.
Jesus gave us this great example of going out into the marketplace, but firstly discovered the ones that would be the most effective for the said job. Then He Developed those ones setting them in line for the future. Just think about it... Jesus developed people to grow others.
Then, obviously, He sends them out in the field / Harvest to do what they were trained for. Deployment would mean you sometimes may need to do something you’re not feeling comfortable doing, but you do it.
The training program for volunteer chaplains may give opportunities you even never thought about. It allows one to start thinking outside of the box. In normal church circles, it sometimes is difficult to get the people starting to think outside of the box. You should then follow this program and get involved and start focusing on the ministry outside the gates of the local church. Remember: The church shouldn't always focus on itself, but on developing and encouraging the kingdom of God. The reason many churches need to close their doors is that they have become self-sustained. This program gives you the opportunity to think bigger, brighter and even broader. Isn't that something?
Become A Volunteer
Being a Volunteer in your office, agency, and church or in any Industry you can think about will change your life forever. Yes, being a volunteer changes your life and it changes the environment you’re in. Like a tea bag. The tea bag give color and flavor to the water, but the water must be nice and hot. The same with a volunteer. The volunteer changes the environment (water), giving it color and flavor. Taste is what we like.
What can you do? Be the person others can trust in the workplace or agency. Be the person who wouldn't mind walking an extra mile for the sake of the greater cause.
The volunteer program is based on a Christian perspective and foundation, but any religion may volunteer.
EAP Workplace Care
Working will always be part of our lives. We need employment to provide for the ones we care for. A negative workforce impacts also the agency's financial income as well as all of the employees in the agency.
A wise person once said: "If you find something you love to do, you won't have to work a day in your life.
The problem with most employers would probably be their caring doesn't go the extra mile. This programs' intention is to develop EAP's and prospects to take care of the employees. Also many times I founded that these EAP'S really does a great job, but they also need some encouragement. Events, teambuilding, re-focusing and re-thinking sessions might be helpful in assisting your agency's EAP's for remodelling their approach to the employees.
If you do not have an EAP officer/s this service may also be useful in developing a focused or enthusiastic employee in your environment caring for his/her peers in the workplace. This caring contribution might just be an attachment to an employees' other official duties.
Some important matters worth mentioning:
Breakthrough or breakout would be what most people need. Fixing their eyes on something other than what they became a slave of. I am so amazed at how many people in this world have been the slave of something for so many years. In other words, being under the control of something or someone. We're not supposed to live like slaves, but rather like free people. People who enjoy their everyday life not being controlled by external things or people.
Being under the control of something pose a threat to our decision-making skills. We tend to be ambushed by decisions when we're under the control of something. Just think about that for a minute; haven’t the most difficult decisions come your way during a time in your life you've been enslaved by something?
Trapped in the midst of financial turmoil, trapped in a relational conflict, or work problems, between a rock and a hard place.
Consider this: Freeing yourself up from bondage in your life and then taking care of difficult choices. How do you eat an elephant?
If your problem is an elephant, how would you manage to eat it all up?
Won't you say peace by peace?
Work through it with people who care for you or a supportive group. Make life better. Make life easier
