Family Shield Counter-Cult Ministry
Counter-Cult Ministry and other Outreach Services. Limited ministry opportunities are available for Christians who want to work with ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses or ex-Mormons and their families. We sometimes have need of individuals to lead individualized Bible studies with former Jehovah’s Witnesses or family members. Other volunteers are needed to make telephone calls to family members of Witnesses or Mormons who are lonely or need regular contact.
Volunteers who work directly with individuals we serve must go through a screening process.
If you would like to help with registration at workshops, please contact us. We also sometimes need volunteers to help with exhibits.
General Office Work
Volunteers are needed to help with general office work. We currently need help with painting the kitchen and hallways. Volunteers work on a project by project basis. Others come to the office one-half day each week or every other week. Others come for special projects. The office is located at 3617 Texas Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri 63118. Times of service must be set up in advance.
Calls to increase the number of radio stations
We need one or two dedicated volunteers who can make telephone calls to radio stations to introduce them to Family Shield and see if they would be interested in airing the program through PSA’s. Contact us if you are interested.
Yard, Maintenance, and Cleaning
Yard work, general maintenance work, painting, and cleaning are needed on a periodic basis. We are currently looking for some volunteers who could paint the office and help to organize our storage area.
