Neshoba Room In The Inn Volunteer Registration
We want to create a database of our volunteers and their preferences. Please help us by filling out our volunteer registration form.
What areas are you interesting in volunteering? Choose as many as you like. Please note, in many cases, the end time listed is approximate and often flexible.
Overnight Shepherd (9:00 pm-7:00 am) - We are required to provide at least 2 adults to stay overnight at the church with our guests. Shepherds are offered a couch in the church in the youth classroom or you may bring something from home to sleep on. Unless we fill these two spots, we will be unable to host.
Evening Driver (5:15-6:15 pm) - We need drivers to transport guests (up to 20 guests). You will need to arrive at Carpenter House (212 N Second Street) by 5:15 pm. We depart at 5:30 pm for Neshoba (7350 Raleigh Lagrange Rd.)
Morning Driver (6:15 am-7:30 am) - We need drivers to transport guests (up to 20 guests). You will need to arrive at Neshoba (7350 Raleigh Lagrange Rd) by 6:15 am. We depart at 6:30 am for Carpenter House (212 N Second Street.)
Hospitality (5:15 pm - 8:30 pm) - We need people to help make beds, set tables, dine with guests, play games, and other activities as needed to make our guests feel welcome.
Chef (Dinner/Dessert) - We need people to bring ready to eat food by 5:30 pm for our guests. This task is broken up into different options (main dish, side dish, salad & bread, dessert & drinks) to ease the costs involved. We need to provide up to two servings for up to 20 guests. We also try to allow enough so that a few volunteers might dine with our guests.
Chef (Breakfast) - We offer our guests a light, warm breakfast by 5:30 am before they head back out for the day. We ask that there is enough for 20 guests.
Kitchen (5:30 pm-7:30 pm) - We have a couple positions open in the kitchen for an organizer and helpers. Volunteers help prepare coffee and drinks, as well as warm, plate and serve the meal, and clean up after.
Shower Supervisor (6:30 pm - 9:00 pm) - We need two volunteers to run our showers. They ensure that our guests have the supplies they need, monitor the time, and spray & mop the shower between guests.
Evening Shepherds (6:30 pm - 9:00 pm) - We need people to stay with our guests during the early evening. This is an opportunity to get to know our guests through visiting, games, cards, movies, or filling other needs. Two supervisors should be with our guests at all times to fill any gaps.
Laundry - We need volunteers to pick up laundry at Neshoba and drop off clean laundry prior to the next inn date.
AM Restore and Reset - This is a significant need. We need volunteers to strip beds, bag laundry, put away tables, fold and store mattresses, remove trash, clean, and reset the church.
To-Go Bags: This is a bonus opportunity! Our coordinators often put together bags to send out the door with our guests each morning. These can include items such as: as PB sandwich, drink, chewy protein bars, pb or cheese crackers, or a variety of other snacks to get them through the day. These are often put together with donations to our program. We have had volunteers ask to put these together and that is certainly helpful and welcomed! Our volunteers enjoy going shopping for just the right items for their bags. We do ask that you are careful not to include anything that would require refrigeration or a can opener.
