What role might be a fit?
Please consider serving in one of the following roles below.
Our leadership roles focus on building teams of volunteers through recruiting, selecting, equipping, leading, and developing in order to multiply the impact of Operation Christmas Child around the world.
As a Church Relations team member, build and cultivate relationships with local Christian churches and work to mobilize, equip, and encourage churches in your community to share the hope of Jesus Christ and fulfill the Great Commission through Operation Christmas Child.
As part of the Community Relations team, use your gifts as an ambassador in your community–engage, mobilize, and equip groups, businesses, and civic organizations to become actively involved in sharing the hope of Jesus Christ through Operation Christmas Child.
This position utilizes the gifts of organization, planning, and hospitality to welcome and host shoebox contributors at local collection sites. This opportunity allows you to mobilize short-term volunteers and coordinate the shoebox collection at your church as a drop-off location.
Media Support volunteers are the voice for Operation Christmas Child in the local community. In this role, you have the opportunity to use the power of your own voice, pen, or personality to promote the ministry through local print, radio, and television outlets.
The power of prayer is a vital part of all we do at Operation Christmas Child. On the Prayer team, you get to provide consistent intercessory prayer support for all areas of ministry for your local Area Team, and all areas of Operation Christmas Child activity.
