Volunteer Spotlight

Jon Phipps, Hospitality

How long have you been volunteering in this role?

8 years

How did you decide to get involved, and why did you choose this volunteer role?

Those that already were volunteering made me feel welcome at GFC when I first began attending GFC, and with that in mind, I wanted to be a part of what I experienced, God’s love.

What is your favorite memory from volunteering with GFC?

So many but one that comes to mind is when we lost power and Tom continues to teach in the dark. I was ushering this particular Sunday, and I just thought everyone will try to exit at once, and we will have people injured. Tom continues to teach like nothing even happened.

What would you say to someone who wants to get involved in a volunteer role?

You will be blessed by simply putting a smile on someone’s face with either a simple handshake, fist bump, or whatever it is. You will want to continue to serve.
