Serving Persecuted Christians Worldwide - Volunteer: Team Leader - Open Doors UK & Ireland

Volunteer Co-ordinator 

Do you have a passion to support and encourage others? Maybe you have a pastoral heart that loves to network and communicate ideas? Could you rally a group to do a team challenge to raise awareness and support for Open Doors?

You can make a difference...

We're building a network of skilled and experienced Volunteer Co-ordinators (currently Great Britain only) who can connect with their local volunteers and nurture each person in their volunteering.

If you are...

  • Are a people person with the ability to connect people
  • Can spot strengths, needs and potential for growth
  • Can relate to a diverse range of people
  • Are enthusiastic and servant-hearted in leadership
  • Love motivating others to help persecuted Christians in practical ways.

Maybe you would like to...

  • Network with your local volunteers and keep in touch with them individually (at least four times per year)
  • Encourage volunteers to travel or be involved on a local level
  • Arrange for volunteers to meet together annually and do a 'group challenge'
  • Find creative ways to encourage local volunteers.

We have lots of ways to support you and encourage you on this journey:

  • Training in volunteer activities within Open Doors' ministry
  • Up to date information on volunteers in your area
  • Practical leadership advice and support
  • Contact with other Volunteer Co-ordinators, where possible
  • Refunds for any reasonable expenses such as travelling costs
  • Regular emails and postal mailings with news and resources
  • A weekend conference twice a year with other core volunteers.
