Before You Volunteer

March 10, 2016

Rev. Mike Slaughter says that he has “intentionally chosen not to use the word volunteer”  in his church. [Renegade Gospel, page 103]

“Volunteers serve out of the convenience of their calendars, controlling when where and how they participate,” he continues.

“Volunteers follow Jesus up to a point — the point of interference with their lifestyle.”

He concludes that this is “problem deeply rooted in the twenty-first-century church: we come to Jesus offering ourselves as volunteers rather than as servants.”

What do you say?
