Reaching into the homes of visitors and congregants who are not otherwise connected.
The Phone Ministry is a vital link in connecting people with the Willingdon Church body and its ministries. This ministry consists of faithful and dedicated volunteers who are members of Willingdon Church. The goal of this ministry is to share the love of Jesus and encourage people to seek a closer walk with God, seeing this evidenced through discipleship and involvement in our Church Ministries. Through birthday, prayer and connect card calls, the phone ministry reaches into the homes of our visitors and regular congregants.
Prayer upholds this ministry and remains an integral part of the Phone Ministry. We pray for each team member individually, we pray prior to making our calls and prayer is offered during each phone call. Prayer requests noted on the Connect/Prayer Cards are recorded and followed up with prayer and by telephone contact. Innumerable people are prayed with and touched through the Phone Ministry.
When a visitor fills out a Connect/Prayer Card, we contact that person within the first week of their visit. Our volunteer extends a warm welcome, thanks them for visiting Willingdon Church and invites them back to join us. This follow-up serves as a wonderful opportunity to introduce Willingdon’s various ministries, Discovery Classes and Bible Study Life Groups.
Care & Birthday Calls
As people decide to make Willingdon Church their home, they are added to our database as regular attendees and members. We then contact them on their birthday and if they are not involved in a defined ministry, a Care Caller Volunteer will phone them six months after their birthday in order to maintain contact, minister and pray about any needs or concerns.
