Serve

A primary part of living out the God-given purpose for our lives is serving others.

At Awaken Church, we want to help everyone  discover the ways in which they can serve God and others.

 

Below, you will find links to Awaken’s service team application and a brief list of our currently operating service teams and their descriptions.

You may fill out the application online and submit it directly, or you can download a pdf file if you prefer a hard copy. Please allow 30-45 minutes to complete the application. Additionally, there is a link to a background check which we require all our volunteers to complete. This background check is completed and submitted online only.

Character Qualifications

In Acts 6 and 1 Timothy 3 we find many character qualifications for a leader. Please answer the following:

 

“Before they are appointed as deacons, they should be given other responsibilities in the church as a test of their character and ability. If they do well, they may serve as deacons.” – 1 Timothy 3:10

 

What is your current capacity at Awaken Church?

Have you been faithful in that capacity?

Are you open to constructive criticism and willing to make changes when needed, or are you easily offended in this way?

What would you do if you filled out this application and were either not placed in a service position, or offered a service position other than what you originally intended?

 
“…deacons must be people who are respected and have integrity.” – 1 Timothy 3:8, 11
 
This quality is listed for both husband and wife. It means to have such Godly character that others notice it and respect it. It is behavior that is dignified, honorable, and sets a Godly example for others. Church leaders should be examples in attendance, serving, and tithing.
 

Do you agree with this?

 yes no

In what other ways should a leader serve?

Please describe your marriage and family life at present:

Please describe you relationship with your children (if applicable):

 
“Full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom” – Acts 6:3
 

What does being “filled with the Holy Spirit” mean to you and would you say that you are “filled with the Holy Spirit?”

Do you have good problem solving skills?

 yes no

To whom would you refer a problem that is beyond your solving skills?

 
“…must not speak evil of others” – 1 Timothy 3:11
 
While the Bible tells us we must speak the truth to one another in love, this passage refers to malicious gossip, whether intentional or not, which falsely accuses another person and smears their character.
 

Why do you think this trait could be so damaging if it existed in a leader of the church?

 
“Likewise deacons must be reverent, not double-tongued…” – 1 Timothy 3:8
 
This refers to saying one thing to one person, and another to a different person. It is inconsistent speech, “people-pleasing”, manipulation, or dishonesty. Servants and servant-leaders must be honest and reliable because they are trusted servants of God and the church. They are to be upright, upfront, and honest in their speech at all times.
 

Why might you be tempted to be "double-tongued"?

“…they must exercise self-control and be faithful in everything they do.”

Do you consider yourself to have good self-control?

In what ways are you sometimes impulsive?

Are you reliable?

How often do you spend reading the Bible and in prayer?

 
“..they must not be heavy drinkers…” – 1 Timothy 3:8
 

Are you satisfied with your present income level and the possessions you have?

Why do you think God cares so much about whether we are satisfied with our possessions, etc?

 
*If you are applying for a Ministry Lead position, the Pastoral Staff must approve your application before you are officially installed in that specific position.
