If you’re like me, the idea of 400+ women in one place can be a little nerve-wracking. I know I always feel better when my hands are busy and when I’m given a task to accomplish. Some of my most memorable conversations at Allume happened while I was working alongside other bloggers to help set-up for the conference. The next day there were faces that I had never previously met that I now counted among friends. It was a blessing to serve in many ways.
This year is shaping up to be the best Allume yet, and in the spirit of service, we’re giving attendees a chance to plug-in and serve each other. So that’s what this post is about…it’s a call to sign-up to serve your fellow sisters and we have a place for you even if you can’t attend.
Below is a list of all the needs we have followed by a short survey. Please read the descriptions and then fill out the survey. You will be hearing back from your team leader (the person you report to) shortly. Please know we are so thankful for each and every one of you! It’s YOU who helps make Allume possible. We ask that you do sign up that way we can better utilize your gifts and callings to make Allume the best ever and allow our management teams not to go crazy.
Super Awesome Service Opportunites
Prayer Team — We need your prayers. Period. Even if you can’t attend, this is the perfect way to get involved. The prayer team will be taking a three-prong approach. First of all, we need prayer warriors storming the gates of heaven leading up to the conference. We trust that God is going to work mightily through Allume this year, which means the devil will be working overtime to throw a wrench wherever he can. Please be praying as the days tick down. Secondly, we would like prayer warriors praying at home during the conference covering our attendees and speakers with prayers. Lastly, we are in need of prayer warriors to help staff the prayer room. If you would like to serve your sisters in this way, we would love to have you. And like I said, if you can’t attend the conference, this is the perfect way for you to stay involved. Allume doesn’t happen without the women of God interceding on its behalf.
Time Keepers — Know how to tell time? We need you! These individuals are vital to keeping the conference on schedule by keeping time for the main sessions and letting our speakers know when they need to wrap it up.
Session/Room Needs — Ensuring speakers and sponsors have what they need in their rooms in regards to AV needs. These individuals will work in tandem with the hotel and will also be helping to distribute books at the Thursday’s keynote.
Allume Breakdown — These individuals will help clean up on Sunday morning following the end of the conference.
Musician Sales Table Help — These individuals will help run the musicians’ sales tables after both concerts.
Registration — Love to meet and greet? We would love to have your smiling face at our registration table to help welcome conference attendees and hand out name tags and hook attendees up with some awesome swag bags.
Sales Table Help — One of the most exciting parts of Allume is not only meeting and greeting our speakers, but purchasing their books and getting a signed copy as well as possibly taking that treasured picture with them. These individuals will help us at the sales table during the meet and greet/book purchasing/book signing session on Saturday afternoon.
Help Staff — I love all the volunteers, but these are some of my favorites because they help man the help desk, give directions, move crowds, and are all around helpers. And most importantly, these ladies will be able to tell you where the closest restroom is. Like I said, these volunteers are important.
Miscellaneous — Are you the kind of gal that can go with the flow? You’d be perfect for the miscellaneous category because these lovely ladies float wherever we need them to…would you consider it?
**Gift Bag Stuffers** — If you would like to help stuff the swag bags we will be stuffing them on Wednesday afternoon beginning at 3pm. This is always a super fun time!!!!
Now it’s time for the survey.
Thank you so much for your time and your willingness to serve!
