One of the most important aspects of serving is commitment, the more you take part in something the more you have a long term impact, while one time service is nice the person who becomes a regular part of a team will have more opportunities to serve and a more fruitful ministry. These are some recommended avenues to pursue if you want to find a ministry opportunity in the community. You will need to contact the appropriate personal and proactively take the proper steps; some opportunities may require training or application processes.
Possible opportunities: counseling, support, admin, nursing.
