Archives For volunteer

Stacy and I worked together at a local church several years ago. She was always helpful and supportive as the communications specialist on staff there. Allison, 14, has been a great volunteer and she perfectly expresses the vision of Two Cities Church in this month’s #WeAreTwoCities video. I’m so glad that they have jumped on board with Two Cites and when I ask myself the question, “What would go undone if Two Cities didn’t exist?” – These are the stories that keep me going. I hope you enjoy watching the story of Stacy and Allison.

Enjoy their #WeAreTwoCities story to find out why they’re so excited about Two Cities. [Can’t see the video? Click here.]

Volunteers, thanks for being a part of our mission to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ at New Vintage Church.

18 Months.

October 14, 2010 — Leave a comment

For the last 18 months my dad has been out of work. He owned his own construction company for years called Don Foster Construction. He specialized in building church buildings up and down the west coast. I don’t know the exact amount, but I think he’s built somewhere about 65 church buildings of all denominations (I’m guessing). But when the economy tanked, churches stopped building and remodeling. He closed his business and joined a larger construction firm in the Vancouver, Wa area. After a few months they downsized and he got the axe. He’s applied for hundreds, maybe thousands of jobs in the last 18 months.

In November his unemployment was going to stop. In November, my parents would be able to make their last house payment. And in December…the collectors were gearing up to come knocking. But in God’s grace and in His perfect timing I got a call saying that my dad was hired. He was hired in the industry he knows, helping a construction company grow their business AND it is for the salary that my parents need to be able to pay their bills.

Through the last 18 months I’ve seen him:

  • Ask for prayer
  • Wait on God
  • Actively seeking employment (of ANY kind)
  • Volunteer his time (like crazy) at his church
  • Consistently say, “I know God will take care of it”
  • And more.

So things are looking up for my parents. And my dad will finally get to work.

If you’re struggling. If you’re jobless. If you are running out of time…trust in Jesus. He will pull you through. Be productive. Volunteer. Give away even when it’s your last crumb. He will pull you through.

The Production Team

One of the great joys of working at New Vintage Church is working with these guys…The Production Team. They are awesome. These guys are who make the main service happen every week from a technical, auditory and aesthetic point of view. We’re always looking for new guys to join this team! And we’re trying to beef up the team a little bit to create two different teams that rotate. These guys have created a community of belonging and have become family. Interested? Email us.
