No two people are alike. God has made each of us uniquely in His image. We all have different abilities.
Even though each person is unique, we have a common encouragement in the Bible: to use our talents and abilities in following Jesus to make a difference in the world. Frederick Buechner once wrote about where to use our God-given abilities. He said to use them “where your deepest joy meets the deep needs of the world”. One of the most important teachings in the Bible compares the folks in the church to a body (I Corinthians 12). Every part of the body is needed for the health of the whole!
As you look at the St. Andrew web-site you will notice the presence of people putting their hands, skills, and time to use for the upbuilding of God's Kingdom: leading youth, helping build houses for Habitat for Humanity, making meals for others, singing in choir, tutoring, sharing community space...the list goes on.
We believe here at St. Andrew you are essential in our ministry to one another and the community. We want to come alongside you in deploying them for the building of God's Kingdom and the transformation of the world. Regardless of whether you are a jack of all trades or have been lied to and told you have nothing to offer - if you have been called to here, we want to include you in our work (if you literally have no idea - check out this spiritual gifts test)
If you are interested in opportunities to share your spiritual gifts, talents, abilities, skills, expertise, and passion, please contact us and we look forward to discerning with you where you can be deployed.
Together, you and I and he and she and God - we can transform the world.
