Volunteer Specifications: We are looking for strong believers who are actively pursuing a growing relationship with Jesus Christ, who live a balanced Christian lifestyle that is above reproach, and who demonstrate a heart to reach the lost and encourage believers. Additionally, we are seeking coachable individuals who are willing to respond humbly to guidance and feedback regarding their service. All our volunteer roles, except that of office assistant, can be performed from anywhere in the world.

We are looking for self-starters who can conduct telephone or Skype interviews, have unlimited access to a computer and the Internet, and will adhere to established deadlines. Candidates should be willing to commit at least 10 hours per month and be receptive to guidance by an editor. In an inquiry email, please include links to three samples of your professional writing. Alternatively, paper publications may be sent to CCM’s mailing address. Please keep in mind that hard copies will not be returned.
Description and requirements: Photojournalists who possess strong interpersonal skills, experience with a wide variety of lighting conditions, and proficiency with digital cameras.

Description and requirements: Advocates commit to share, for a period of one year, CCM’s ministry with those in their circle of influence.
