Volunteers join ministry teams that go to institutions such as prisons, long-term care centres, emergency shelters and addiction residences. Trained team leaders work together with their team members to create ministry sessions that are led by the Holy Spirit and resonate with their ministry audience. Because of this, the format of ministry sessions vary from team to team, but common denominators are:
  • each team’s ministry is centred around the sharing of a biblical message and discussion, and prayer
  • sometimes video or music is used to complement
  • usually there is time for visiting and conversation
No. You do not need to be a skilled group leader. You do not need to have musical skills. You do not need to have all the answers.
  • You may be thinking, “I have never shared the gospel with anyone”, “I want to do this, but I am terrified”, or “I don’t think I have anything to offer.” That’s okay.
  • If you want to obey Jesus by “loving the Lord your God, and loving your neighbour” then there is a place for you to volunteer with Connecting Streams.
  • Our volunteers go in teams, so you are never on your own.
  • We provide ongoing support, prayer, and training to help equip you.
  • Volunteers must be 18 years old, with the exception of the Young Offenders’ Center where they must be 21
  • Consistent (typically weekly) commitment to a team is emphasized in order to best serve those to whom we minister, as well as the other team members

“Anything you did for one of the least important of these… you did for me.” – Matthew 25:40 (NIRV)

After you APPLY ONLINE the Volunteer Coordinator will contact you to arrange a time to meet. Look over the ministry opportunities available in your area before your meeting with the Volunteer Coordinator.

POLICE CHECK

Clearance is required for most ministry areas

Our Volunteer Coordinator will provide you with a letter indicating that you are volunteering with Connecting Streams. This letter may exempt you from paying the full fee for the check.

You are responsible for renewing your police records check every 3 years.

A routine Criminal Record Check and/or Vulnerable Section Check (also known as a Criminal Record/Security Clearance Check, or a Police Information Check) is required for most Connecting Streams’ volunteers.

Additional security clearance is required for some facilities. Our Volunteer Coordinator will ensure that you are aware of what is needed.

Let the Adventure Begin!

Isaiah 58: 10, 11

If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.
The LORD will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

Volunteering on a Connecting Streams’ ministry team requires a weekly commitment, from Sep through Jun. If you plan to be away, let your Team Leader know in advance so he or she can ensure there are the minimum number of people available for that week’s  ministry.

As a volunteer, you will receive weekly TAKE2 (minutes) for TRAINING videos.

We look forward to meeting you face-to-face at Training sessions.

We are delighted to have you follow God’s leading and GO!
