The Christian Ethos of Volunteering

Volunteering is not just a nice thing to do, it’s a Christian calling out of love. The Bible is rich with examples and teachings that encourage us to serve others.

In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus says “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine you did for me” (Matthew 25:40). So when you volunteer you’re not just fulfilling a societal need, you’re responding to the call from God.

Benefits of Volunteering

  • Personal Growth: Volunteering allows you to develop new skills and gain experiences that can be life changing.

Community Building: When you volunteer you contribute to the strength and unity of your community embodying Christian principles of love and service.

  • Networking: Volunteering also provides a way to meet like minded individuals opening doors for further communal activities or spiritual growth.
