Church Representative Volunteer

We need South African churches to unite in prayer – for Christians who share our faith but not our freedom. Imagine your church growing in faith as you pray, for God is building His Church in the face of persecution. Imagine the impact.

You can make a difference…

We have a vision to see the persecuted Church on the agenda of every church in South Africa. Our mandate should be to stand in prayer and support for our persecuted family. But this vision will only become a reality through people like you, responding to the call to become a Church Representative Volunteer. You can be the link between your local church family and our persecuted family worldwide.
You may even be fulfilling this role without knowing it!

If you are…

  • A people’s person;
  • An active part of your church community;
  • Able to spot opportunities to make a difference and make the most of them;
  • Motivated by a challenge;
  • Experienced in leading prayer meetings;
  • Excellent at communicating to groups or representing a cause.

Maybe you would like to…

  • Facilitate others in praying more for persecuted Christians;
  • Find ways to make your church aware of the persecution faced by Christians around the world;
  • Inspire people to add their voice to critical advocacy campaigns and petitions;
  • Request financial support when appropriate;
  • Have personal support and encouragement from your local pastor, church- or home cell leader.

Speaker Volunteer

Do you have an infectious enthusiasm for the things that really matter to you? Are you excited by the thought of speaking to a room full of people who have no idea what Open Doors’ ministry to the persecuted Church is all about? Can you tell a story in such a way that you can hear a pin drop afterwards?

You can make a difference…

We’re building a team of inspirational and authoritative speakers who can connect with different audiences and inspire the prayers and supporters of tomorrow.

If you are…

  • Passionate for God and the persecuted Church;
  • An inspirational communicator with public speaking and/or preaching experience;
  • Able to deliver relevant and motivating presentations whether you’re sitting with six people or standing in front of 200;
  • Self-motivated and committed to arrange and organise speaking events throughout the year, not intimidated by indifference, and eager to see more Christians on their knees in prayer and on their feet in action for our persecuted family;
  • Willing to commit to Open Doors’ core values and messages and be a trusted ambassador for persecuted Christians;
  • Reliable and organised in corresponding with people by phone, email and letters;
  • Computer literate with access to a computer and the Internet on a regular basis.

Maybe you would like to…

  • Book, prepare, and deliver a minimum of 10 inspirational presentations a year;
  • Be trained to portray the reality of persecution faced by Christians around the world;
  • Represent the holistic ministry of Open Doors in a personal and relevant way with integrity and compassion;
  • Inspire individuals, groups, and churches to make an impact through praying, giving, volunteering or campaigning;
  • Motivate individuals to become supporters of the ministry and approach potential Church Representative Volunteers to become involved;
  • Network locally to spark new ministry opportunities;
  • Send in gifts and requests for our literature and keep us informed of your progress.

Administrative Helper

Are you within easy travelling distance of Johannesburg? Do you have some spare time on your hands? Do you see the value in the little things and love to be in the right place at the right time?

You can make a difference…

Our office in Johannesburg sends out a lot of much-needed prayer materials and resources to supporters across Southern Africa. But we cannot do it on our own. We would be lost without the extra pairs of hands to help with general office tasks such as the counting of coins, mailing of letters, making phone calls, etc.

If you are…

  • Able to focus on the task at hand;
  • Someone who enjoys lightening the load for others and being part of a team;
  • Able to be as neat with the 500th resource pack as you are with the first;
  • Happy to follow instructions but can gently point out inconsistencies so we can fix them;
  • Someone with previous experience in office administration, data entry or filing.

Maybe you would like to…

  • Help our office team get resources and information to our supporters;
  • Make up resource packs or stuff envelopes;
  • Offer a regular number of hours per week or month, or simply be called in when there’s a lot to be done.

If you do, however, live in the other provinces of South Africa, and still feel like you would like to be involved, you can phone us on 011 888 9341, or SMS “ADMIN” to 44641 and we will contact you with details and requirements.
