This is a photo that a co-worker, Scott Fillmer, took of me doing my new job. My job title has now expanded to include “Volunteer Coordinator” at Cornerstone Church. Recently my boss, Jack Fisher (aka. Admin Czar), published a Cornerstone leadership blog about my new job responsibilities, Meet Julia Farrow. It’s pretty scary how someone can pretty much sum up your life in a few paragraphs, but Jack did a good job of it.
I’m very excited about being a part of this great team on Sunday mornings! I know technically there are two teams working on Sundays – the staff and the volunteers. However, when it comes to leading people to know and serve Jesus, there really is just one team of both combined. Recently a cousin of mine said she happened to be at a service station and overheard the following conversation:
- An employee was explaining to a customer that the employees there worked as a team. He asked her if she had ever seen a football team standing around a fumbled football pointing at it and waiting for someone to pick it up. They pick up each other’s slack there.
And that’s how it should be! I’m looking forward to leading our volunteers to be the best team players we can be, so those who walk through the doors of Cornerstone Church on Sunday mornings have the best experience possible. As a friend of mine used to say, see you at the house come Sunday!
