Summer is a lively time at the Billy Graham Library and seasonal volunteers are a key part of making the ministry happen. Are you a student or teacher looking for a meaningful volunteering opportunity during the summer? Become a Billy Graham Library summer volunteer! To receive summer volunteer status, we ask that you commit to serve for at least two months of the summer. Summer volunteers can serve in three ways:

  1. The Journey of Faith and Homeplace: Serve by welcoming guests to the Library, assisting guests through The Journey of Faith tour, and praying with guests. You must commit to serve 16 hours per month.
  2. Bookstore Greeter: Greet and direct guests in the bookstore area. Volunteer will become familiar with the titles offered, gift products, and the layout of the store to help guests find the resources they need. Volunteer may occasionally be asked to straighten or restock as needed. Volunteer will primarily interact with guests in the bookstore. You must commit to serve 16 hours per month.
  3. Dairy Bar Attendant: Provide customer service while cleaning, restocking, serving, and assisting with general food service duties. You must commit to serve 16 hours per month.
