Northwest Baptist Convention



Volunteer Coordinators
As Volunteer Coordinators we are responsible for the ministry of Volunteerism within the Northwest Baptist Convention.

This covers areas such as but not limited to Mission Service Corps, Missions on Short Term, VBS, BYBC, Sojourners, World Changers, Campers on Mission and Youth Group projects.

Our task is bringing needs and volunteers together. This is accomplished by the recruitment of volunteers within the Northwest Baptist Convention and through the North American Mission Board. We then match needs received from local churches with the abilities and desires of the volunteer. Through these efforts many ministries can be accomplished with limited funding.

To get your need(s) published on this list and through the North American Mission Board (NAMB) you must submit a Service Opportunity Request (SOR) to this office. We will then process the request and sent it to NAMB where it will be publicized through their publications. We publish a “Needs List” each quarter and mail to more than four hundred addresses. Your need(s) will be published on the NAMB web page as well as this web page.
