Looking for a local volunteer opportunity this Christmas?

This time of year we're reminded that we need to focus less on ourselves and more on others. I recently learned of a great site called ChristianVolunteering.org. It's a free directory with over 2,000 volunteer opportunities. The site’s partners include the Salvation Army, GospelCom, World Vision, the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions and over 1,000 ministries serving under-resourced communities. In addition to volunteer opportunities for individuals, you can find needs that might be appropriate for church groups and short-term missions trips. I found about 30 opportunities just in the Nashville area with positions ranging from website designers and computer teachers to mentors and job skills teachers. Check out ChristianVolunteering.org for volunteer needs in your area.
