Volunteer at the Episcopal Church's General Convention: July 8-17 in Anaheim

We have a rare opportunity for ministry and learning coming our way this summer: The Episcopal Church will hold its triennial General Convention July 8 - 17, 2009 at the Anaheim Convention Center in the Diocese of Los Angeles, and they need helpers...lots of them!

It takes about 1,500 volunteer workers to efficiently run the Convention. This is a great opportunity to see the Church at work, and see how the winds of the Holy Spirit can blow through committee rooms and plenary sessions and send the Church's bishops, deputies and members out to do its work in the world.

Volunteers are needed in the following areas:

  • Public safety
  • Information
  • Meeting rooms
  • Volunteer services
  • Registration
  • House/worship services
  • Print distribution
  • Communications/press

Times and days are flexible; even signing up for one shift helps the planners and will be a great experience. Quite a few of us have already indicated our interest. To register as a volunteer online, click here.

I have signed up at the Diocesan Convention in Dec 08. I think this is a great opportunity not only for ministry but to meet a lot of interesting people within the community of faith. Who knows..you might even make a new friend.
Once you have finished your shift, you are free to wander around the convention & visit vendors for the day. Always enlightening & interesting.
BeBOLD, do something you might not ordinarily think of doing, you are bound to be blessed by the experience.
Shalom,
Lynn Marini
