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 (possibly between 50-75 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 some extra people to help out with facilities for cleaning and disinfecting the Atrium and Auditorium areas.

If you have any questions about volunteering, please reach out to me at mwilke01@gmail.com or 585-749-4884.

We look forward to serving with you!!

Michael Wilkerson-Barker and the GLS Lead Team at Lakeshore Community Church

Prayer Room

Due to social distancing, we will not be having a designated prayer room, but we encourage our volunteers to either offer to pray with our attenders if they are seeking prayer, or grab one of the team leaders to pray with them.

Teams

NOTE: Due to the extra cleaning required per the COVID-19 requirements, we ask that all volunteers help out with cleaning while the Summit is in session.

Greet
The Greeters will be divided between the Auditorium and the Gym, since both of these will be set up as viewing areas. 

Registrations
This role is reduced this year - there are no lanyards or Summit books and the number attending in-person will be significanly less than previous years (75-100 people). The Registrations Team will be responsible for registering the guests and resolving any registration issues the guests may have.

Facilities
This is the most important role this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are specific guidelines that must be followed to ensure a safe and clean environment.

Food Service
The guest snacks will be prepackaged in bags and drinks will be available. Volunteer snacks and lunches will be prepackaged as well. There will be minimal, if any, food preparation required during the days, mostly setting up the guest snack bags and handing out drinks.  The Cafe will not be available.

Safety Procedures

We will be following the standard safety procedures as our Sunday Services, which requires everyone to wear a mask (which we can provide) and regular disinfecting of the surfaces. The guests are allowed to remove their masks while they are seated in the Gym or Auditorium. When you are not actively serving, volunteers can take a break outside, where you can remove your mask and get some fresh air.

Dress Code

We want our guests to remember our volunteers as Team Lakeshore during the event on Thursday and Friday. Every volunteer is provided with a Lakeshore golf shirt and an ID badge. Please wear comfortable shoes (you may be on your feet a lot) and dark colored pants (e.g. navy, black, dark gray). Shorts are allowed this year, but no jeans, please. Dark colored capris are also fine for the women.

Greet Team: We do ask that the Greet Team wear pants, since you will be directly interacting with the guests.

Note: If you are serving on Wednesday (Setup Day), please wear comfortable clothes and shoes - shorts & T-shirts are fine.
