How can a person get involved and help with upcoming GSAE events?
*The easiest way is to attend an event to see if this is something they believe God is calling them to participate in.
* Second is to ask what can be done on a volunteer basis within the office. There are a number of ways that we could use peoples help in on a weekly base. Ways such as: mailers, computer data input, creating and maintaining list, as well as working to keep the ministry current via our past.
* Third is to be a liaison from their fellowship back to the leadership of the GSAE sharing what is happening as well as what people are saying about ministry within the local church. We need a lot of ears and hands to help stay on the cutting edge of ministry. Hearing from the “layperson’s” ears is a great way to be involved with the GSAE.
