MEDIA ADVISORY, Aug 25 /Christian Newswire/ -- Family.ChristianVolunteering.org was recently launched to connect families with local ministry opportunities, short term family mission trips and volunteering resources. The website, a joint venture between SixSeeds.org and ChristianVolunteering.org, has attracted thousands of organizations--all looking for families to donate their time in helping the disadvantaged.
The partnering organizations hope to aid families in their search for purposeful family time, while touching those in the community with Christ's love and compassion.
For families, the new website makes the following activities simple:
• Search for short term family mission trips: In today's economy, family vacations are increasingly harder to afford. "Staycations" offer a replacement but are certainly not be the only option. Many opportunities listed on Family.ChristianVolunteering.org are short term trips with unique opportunities to serve. While the cost is not fully funded, these trips often include room and board and can offer families the option of meaningful, selfless travel to new destinations.
• Find local opportunities: Search results for local family volunteering opportunities. This may include serving food at a local mission, throwing an ice cream social at a nursing facility, visiting children in the hospital, or even construction (older teens).
• Download free training resources, missions-oriented devotionals and other materials: The new family-focused volunteer opportunity search is only one aspect of the website. Free resources include videos, books, links and articles about volunteering with kids, the importance of serving, and how to talk about issues with younger volunteers (poverty, sickness or homelessness).
For ministries in need of volunteers, there is now a place to recruit healthy families willing to serve and touch others. At Family.ChristianVolunteering.Org, ministries and organizations can create an account and post volunteer opportunities in under 10 minutes.
ChristianVolunteering.org is the largest the largest Christian volunteer matching website on the internet. With over 5,500 volunteer opportunities partnering together and listing opportunities, the website has become a place for Christians to match their interests to the volunteer position that’s a correct fit, all to further the Kingdom., ChristianVolunteering.org is a ministry of TechMission, which is a Christian nonprofit social service organization located in Boston, MA. With partners that include World Vision, Association of Gospel Rescue Missions and Gospel.com, TechMission has served over 1.3 million visitors to its websites (SafeFamilies.org, UrbanMinistry.Org, ChristianFreeware.Org and others).
