GLS 2020 Volunteer Info
Thank you for considering to sign up as a volunteer for the Global Leadership Summit at Lakeshore Community Church! Volunteering for this event is a great way to get connected with the church and meet other people who attend our church. Our hope is that you will find this experience enriching and most of all fun!
In the following sections, you will find the online signup form, volunteer food donations and additional volunteer information. Here are the dates for the Global Leadership Summit:
- August 5, 2020 - Setup Day
- August 6, 2020 - Summit Day 1
- August 7, 2020 - Summit Day 2
We sincerely hope you will considering volunteering for the Summit this year. Our attendance size is expected to be smaller (maybe around 150 guests) and volunteering for the Summit is going to look different this year than previous years due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is for this event to be as fun and enriching as previous years, while keeping the volunteers and guests as safe as possible. As a result, some of the standard stations will not be available, e.g. Resources or Cafe, and our normal layout and procedures will be considerably different.
We will be following similar safety procedures as our Sunday Services, which includes requiring everyone to wear a mask (which we will provide) and regular disinfecting of public surfaces. As a result, we need A LOT of people to help out with facilities for cleaning and disinfecting the Atrium and Auditorium areas.
New Team! Since the GLS is providing a livestream option for all the guests, each site is required to provide some volunteers on chat who will interact with those watching the GLS online. We will need around 3-5 volunteers for this position.
If you have any questions about volunteering, please reach out to me at email@example.com or 585-749-4884.
We look forward to serving with you!!
