Christmas at the Library Job Fair

Thousands of people attend Christmas at the Library each December to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ through joy-filled activities such as a live nativity, carriage rides and carolers. Since it began in 2008, more than 1,300 people have made decisions for Christ and more than 2,500 people have recommitted their lives to Him during Christmas at the Library. This year the Library is hosting our first annual Christmas at the Library Job Fair, which is the kick-off to this year’s application process. We are seeking seasonal employees and volunteers to work throughout the month of December.

There are so many people that give their time serving at Christmas at the Library each year, and they all have a story of how God brought them here and how He impacted them during their time serving.

One of these volunteers, Diane Little, is going on her ninth year volunteering at Christmas at the Library. She said that serving at the Library in December has become her favorite Christmas tradition. She loves serving for many reasons, but two stick out among the rest. She loves the people and she loves sharing the Gospel.

“I love the people! The other volunteers, the visitors, the staff. I love showing God’s love to all!”

When Diane first started volunteering, she would stay with her mother so that she could volunteer on her days off. When her mother became ill, Diane was overwhelmed with the support she received from the other Library staff in praying over her mother.

People like Diane make Christmas at the Library such a wonderful atmosphere—one of love. Diane said that she would “whole-heartedly encourage anyone considering volunteering to do so! It is a holy yet humbling experience that will completely fill your cup and bring amazing people into your life! You WILL be used by God, you will be blessed beyond measure.”

Is Christmas at the Library an annual tradition of yours? Maybe this is the year that you decide to also play a role in making the experience great for others.

Join us for our Christmas at the Library Job Fair, and meet with recruiters to learn about the available ministry opportunities during December.

The event will be held on the back patio of the Billy Graham Library the week of July 9-13 from 9:30 a.m to 5 p.m. On Thursday, July 12, the event will stay open until 8:00 p.m. for those who are unable to make it during the day. Candidates who come and apply at this event will receive priority interviews and placement, as well as an entry to win the Grand Prize: a Christmas at the Library Family Fun Pack. In addition, a special gift will be given to the first 10 people who come and apply each day.

Volunteer positions include: Live nativity scene participant, carriage ride assistant, Children’s Story-Time reader, bookstore associate, Graham Brothers Dairy Bar associate, guest & photo assistant, and greeter.

Seasonal job openings include: Guest services team member, Ruth’s Attic bookstore associate, food services associate and parking attendant.

With your help, we can continue to impact lives with the Gospel and share with them the greatest gift they could ever receive this Christmas.

    I would love to volunteer in whatever position is needed. Billy made such a great impact on my life. The Lord used him to call me into full time ministry and in many other wonderful ways! I’d love to honor him in doing this.

  2. Toni M. Schaefer says:

    I’d love to volunteer and serve, unfortunately my residence is located in Milwaukie, Oregon. 97222.
    Are there any available opportunities for me to serve with BGEA here?
    I’m serving at the Decision America Tour at the Canby Fairgrounds coming up. I eagerly await opportunities serving with BGEA.
    Love in Christ, Toni Schaefer

    I’d like to volunteer for Bikers With Boxes, please let me know what I need to do to help at the library with this program. I have several boxes that I give out to be filled and “rode” up there, I’m a Greenville Gospel Rider of The Christian Motorcycle Association and would like to help more than just riding up and donating my boxes.

  4. Tammy Castro says:

    This is so great! I hope I can contribute during the Christmas season some way. God bless!!

  5. Terry Oldham says:

    I’m so sorry I was not able to make it to your job fair today. I only got the notice yesterday & I was unable to get away from work.

    If you still need help in either paid or volunteer capacity, please let me know.

    God bless you!


  6. Linda Wright says:

    I just now logged into this upcoming event. How wonderful it would be to serve during the Christmas season. I already know I will be helping my husband after total knee surgery late this fall. I will need prayers during that time.
    God bless all of you!

  7. Irma Frockt says:
