Begin Now is the perfect learning environment for a follower of Christ to learn how to become a thoughtful, relational servant in a diverse community. In this ministry, volunteers take classes alongside participants, listen to their struggles and contribute their own life experiences. They take a class about how their efforts affect the community in need. Lastly, they learn how to develop healthy relationships that inspire lasting change in others.
Completing the volunteer track requires attending three sessions in specific volunteer roles with an attendance rate of 70% or higher:
Relational Assistant – attend a Begin Now class (preferably Affirming Potential) and contribute to the class alongside others.
Redemptive Compassion – take a class alongside other volunteers to learn how helping efforts can be both healthy and unhealthy to people in need and the community at large.
Provide Transportation and/or Become a Discussion Leader – Begin developing a personal relationship with an individual or a family who is participating in the Begin Now program by providing transportation to and from classes. And/or become a discussion leader in one of the classes to facilitate discussion and learning among participants and volunteers.
