What Can I Do as a Volunteer?
There are many opportunities to serve during the TGM Veterans Outreach, the key is to come ready to serve where needed. Not everyone will cook, not everyone will work in the serving line but everyone can spend time visiting with the veterans, listening to their stories which inevitably leads to opportunity to pray for them. Also we need people who will go camp site to camp site to let people know there are meals served just for them.
Areas of Service:
- Meal Preparation
- Serving Food
- Clean up
- Trash Removal
- Equipment Maintenance
- Security Detail
- GOFER…go for this or go for that!
Attitude determines the overall atmosphere of the outreach!
We ask every person who comes to serve to come with a right attitude. This means we are not only serving the veterans but each other! Our goal is to work together to provide a peaceful and Christ anointed environment.
First, you are an Ambassador for Christ and secondly, you are a representative of Tim Grisham Ministries.
- Guard your heart from offense - pray before you serve.
- Be ready to do whatever is needed not just what you like to do.
- Look for what needs to be done
- ASK first, don't assume something unless your sure
- Be respectful of the Howard County Vietnam Veterans and the Organization.
