Are you passionate about serving others and making a positive impact in Indiana? Do you have a heart for spreading kindness, joy and the love of Jesus? If so, we invite you to join us at the Southern Baptist Convention in Indianapolis this June and become a vital part of our volunteer team. 

 

The SBC is an annual gathering that brings together thousands of individuals from across the nation who are united in their faith and commitment to serving others. This year, we are excited to host the convention in Indianapolis, where we will come together to worship, learn, and fellowship with one another. 

 

Volunteers play a crucial role in helping the event run smoothly and ensuring that all attendees have a positive experience. We are currently seeking volunteers to serve in five key areas: 

 

Information Booth: Are you a people person who loves helping others find their way? Those volunteering to serve at the Information Booths will be supplied with an information notebook from the SBC Executive Committee that has a myriad of information about the Annual Meeting. There will be materials such as maps, restaurant guides, tourist attractions, public transportation information, and shopping areas.  

 

Ushers: Responsibilities include greeting messengers and guests and assisting them with finding seats, if necessary. Ushers will also “pass the buckets” for collection of ballots or offerings. Ushers are the eyes and ears of the session hall for emergency situations so that First Aid and Security can be notified when necessary.  

 

Greeters: A warm smile and a friendly greeting can make all the difference in someone’s day. Those volunteering to serve as a greeter will primarily serve inside the Convention Center lobbies and hallways and at main entrances to greet messengers and guests, provide general directions to meeting rooms, Exhibit Halls, General Sessions, Registration, etc. Greeters will be provided with an information card that will supply answers to questions that are most likely be asked. Greeters will also point people to the Information Booths for more involved questions or other general help. 

 

Prayer Room: Prayer is a powerful tool that can bring comfort, healing, and hope to those in need. Those volunteering to serve in the Prayer Room will be stationed at the Prayer Room—an area for messengers and guests who desire to spend time in prayer or to request someone to pray for them. 

 

Registration Set Up 

This is a very important behind the scenes job. Those volunteering to help on this team will assist in the setup of the registration area. On Saturday morning registration materials are prepared and name badges and lanyards are assembled to setup the registration kiosks. From Sunday afternoon through Wednesday afternoon, volunteers continually resupply kiosks so that registration will go smoothly.
