Jesus consistently led by example throughout his life on earth. Repeatedly, Jesus served others. He washed the feet of his disciples (John 13:1-14), served a meal to a huge crowd of people (John 6:1-13), and healed countless sick people (Matthew 9:20-22; Matthew 9:35; Mark 2:9-12; Luke 17:12-16). In John 13:15, In the last few days before his death, Jesus encourages us, “I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you.”
God gave each of us unique personalities and gifts to serve others. Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, there’s a place for you to contribute to what God’s doing in our church! Read below to find what serving positions could be your perfect fit based on your personality:
