Become a Volunteer
The national office of Christian Life Resources in Richfield, Wisconsin, is blessed with a core of dedicated, hard-working, and committed volunteers who work to continue our life-affirming ministry. They are a vital part of CLR! Now you can be part of the CLR volunteer corps, because we need to expand our pool of friends who can assist in our ministry. You can even choose to volunteer in person or from home! Volunteering your time and talents enriches not only the lives of other people but your own as well!
There is a place at CLR for you as a volunteer. Simply fill out our volunteer form now!
For more information and to let us match you with the volunteer opportunity you're most interested in, please contact the volunteer coordinator by clicking here (you'll find us under "Services"). You'll be glad you did!
Take a look below to see what needs match your talents for the ministry of Christian Life Resources.
At times life issues arise within your community or state which may not be reported in the national or international news services. If you come across such stories that would touch on the broad range of life and family issues addressed by Christian Life Resources and its affiliates, please send it to the national office. Use your judgment in determining whether a news story is pertinent and whether it contains news that Christian Life Resources would not otherwise find on its national and international news services.
Perhaps you are trained in marketing. Christian Life Resources and its affiliates have developed a wide variety of products and services needing to be marketed with the religious community, to the school systems, and to the general public. Can you develop a marketing plan or help with ideas on how best to “get the word out?” Then let us know you have that skill and how narrow of a field you wish to focus on. We can discuss pertinent products and services and get you the information.
Christian Life Resources seeks to make difficult and complex issues easier to understand. Would you be willing to review material and websites and counsel us on those areas that are unclear and need to be rewritten?
Perhaps you can write music or perform it. Christian Life Resources is always looking for Christian music to play on its “music on hold” system as well as looking for new material to share for church choirs, soloists, children, etc. to be used in a life or family emphasis worship service.
Maybe you can make a quilt, crochet a wrap for a newborn, or make booties and a sweater. These projects become wonderful gifts for residents and their children at New Beginnings - A Home for Mothers.
Consider for a moment the full scope of ministry at Christian Life Resources. At the national office we have need for office equipment, visual and audio presenting equipment, furniture, etc. At the home for mothers we literally have a living setting for 12 apartments, including providing transportation. Maybe you have connections to charitable minded people in industries that could help us. Would you be able to put us in touch with those who might be willing to gift or sell us new items that can be used in our ministries?
Christian Life Resources uses life and family issues as bridges that allow us the opportunity to show Christian love and to share the message of love in Christ that lasts forever. We do this in many ways but there are always new ideas. Do you have some new ideas? Think of cost-effective and unique ways for us to use life and family issues to talk to people about their Savior and to help them in their lives. Share those ideas with us.
The Christian Life Resources periodical, Clearly Caring, is supported through donations and through paid advertising. The more paid advertising we receive for the publication of this periodical the more opportunities we have to reach more people with more information. Perhaps you are comfortable making initial contacts with possible advertisers by phone, mail, or visit. Let us know and we can share with you the advertising price list and related requirements.
Do you have a spiritually based story to share about lessons you learned within the context of life and family issues? We are always looking to compile such stories and we share them with others who need hope, inspiration, or maybe just a little chuckle in life.
We already talked about creating baby things for the home for mothers. Perhaps you do woodworking, make lawn ornaments, adult clothing or other such personal creation projects. Did you know that Christian Life Resources has a store? Donating some of your handicraft for Christian Life Resources to see is one way your home-grown talent and effort provides needed funds for the Christian Life Resources ministries.
Maybe your day takes you in the reception area of an office, medical clinic, or library. Perhaps your church is trying to bolster a fledgling lending library for its membership. Look around and see if there are places where Christian Life Resources can provide copies of our periodical, Clearly Caring, and let us know.
Are you a medical professional? Perhaps you are a child psychologist or attorney. Maybe you are a school teacher or journalist. If you feel you can write on a topic that would be beneficial for the staff of Christian Life Resources or something valuable for the pages of Clearly Caring or the Christian Life Resources website, just drop us a line. Let us know the topic and provide a brief summary. We will let you know if we can use it.
We all know about Scrabble, Fish, and Yahtzee. Perhaps your family has a unique game that was passed down from generation to generation that pulls everyone together for quality family time. Share the idea and details with us so we can share it with others.
Are you an educator? Do you teach children and have you done so on crucial life and family issues? Christian Life Resources is always looking to expand its stable of materials that can help others teach on life and family issues. Share with us what you have done and work on new projects and approaches to educating on life and family issues.
There are some things which just seem to pull the family together. Maybe it is the group effort to build an addition onto a room, putting in a special flower garden, or working together at a soup kitchen. If you have a story to tell, take some pictures and share it with us so we can share it with others.
Christian Life Resources produces videos and CD-ROMs to help people wrestle through life and family issues. Does your line of work touch on any of these industries? Do you have the means to volunteer time or resources to help in production? Maybe you can reproduce items on your duplicators or get us an unbeatable deal on packaging. Consider the possibilities.
Did you know that Christian Life Resources often has to purchase photos from stock houses to print in its material. If photography of life and family events is your hobby or profession, perhaps you have already done the work and could save Christian Life Resources some money. Consider sharing some of your photos with us that we can use free of charge in our materials.
Christian Life Resources is always exploring new ways to educate on life and family issues. We have considered development of interactive CD-ROMs. We are looking at new and more interactive website’s that are fun and easy to use. If you are skilled in this perhaps you can help their development.
One way a new mother welcomes her child into the world is when her friends hold a baby shower. Have you considered doing such a thing for a mother who can’t be there? Our home for mothers provides needs for six mothers at a time. Every year the home has almost a complete turnover. Maybe you can sponsor a baby shower to help one or more of these mothers. You can do this project in your home for a mother and child in need!
Christian Life Resources maintains a gift store called Family Treasures and Gifts, and it is growing every day! The store is online at www.FamilyTG.com and is also located at the Christian Life Resources national office. We are looking for personnel willing to volunteer their time to assist with maintaining the on-site store, taking and processing orders, shipping orders, labeling products with price tags, etc. Scheduling is very flexible, and any number of hours you are willing to volunteer is greatly appreciated! For more information, please call 1-800-478-2719. Family Treasures and Gifts is a ministry of Christian Life Resources, and all proceeds directly support the mission and pro-life work of Christian Life Resources.
The CLR office is not large, and the phone system is quite easy to handle. If you have a pleasant voice and a warm personality, perhaps you might consider volunteering as a receptionist. The options are to work as little as a half day to all five days in a week (hours are 8:00am to 4:30pm CST). When not answering the phone or greeting visitors you may find yourself working at some odd job at your desk or maybe just bring a good book along to read.
Perhaps a task such as dusting isn't exactly glamorous! Dusting is an overlooked task, yet it needs to be done. Once a week we could use someone to dust the office so it always looks clean and professional.
It isn’t a big task but we have plants that need watering. Perhaps you have a green thumb and cannot only keep the plants we have growing strong but bring new plant life into the office. By doing so you make for a pleasant work environment that is attractive and professional looking.
Sometimes we need envelopes stuffed for a large mailing. Sometimes we work ahead in assembling packets of informational material. As an international agency there is always something that needs to be put together.
Maybe the blinds need cleaning, a wall needs painting, a wall needs patch, or a room needs paint. Sometimes a table needs repairing or a carpet needs cleaning. These are all troublesome tasks that get easily ignored as we try to do everything else. If you can help with some of these things we can use you at the national office.
Every two months CLR needs a group of volunteers to help package our bulk shipments of Clearly Caring. You can serve with this half-day project of counting, packaging, taping and labeling these shipments.
On occasion Christian Life Resources has items that need to be typed or envelopes to be addressed in the CLR office. If you can use a typewriter or computer to complete such a project, let us know.
Serve the LORD with all your heart; consider what great things He has done for you!
