Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer

We often hear from supporters that they would like to help by becoming more deeply involved with our ministry, but feel ill-equipped to volunteer with us. The great news is if you have a willing heart and a teachable spirit, we have a place for you!

Contact Darla at dsmith@firstdallas.org to schedule a tour of our centers and to find out more about training to volunteer to work with clientele.  For volunteering with events please contact Vicki at vking@firstdallas.org. We need YOU!

Serving around two thousand women and their families each year requires help from volunteers.  The roles of volunteers vary from helping with fundraising events to providing spiritual support, providing medical support, and mentoring moms who have chosen to parent.

The role of a ministry volunteer is a critical one. Because of this, we take seriously our responsibility to recruit and train those whom we believe would be most effective in this setting. For those that desire to work directly with clients, the process may seem intense or overwhelming. But, the rewards of a volunteer will be an opportunity to not only minister to clients but to also experience personal spiritual growth. Many volunteers have expressed they are blessed by volunteering because they feel God is using them to make a difference for eternity! Do you want to be a part of a group of people who make an impact for life?

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’”  Matthew 25:34-36
