God has uniquely gifted you for His purposes. You are wired for good works. God has orchestrated opportunities specifically for your skill set and He is ready for you to join Him in His work.
Volunteering with Operation Christmas Child directly connects you with God’s global purposes. By serving year-round, you further the proclamation of the Gospel in more than 150 countries around the world. Every gift-filled shoebox is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship-transforming the lives of children and their families through the Good News of Jesus Christ.
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. Collection volunteers serve as the face of OCC as shoebox donations come through the doors on their way to the waiting arms of children around the world.
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 to all we do at Operation Christmas Child. Prayer team members work to mobilize local churches and groups to pray for the spread of the Gospel and hope of Jesus Christ. They likewise provide intercessory prayer support for the ministry of OCC.
