Churches in every community are already connected to networks, denominations, and organizations as they engage in ministry. There are leaders representing these groups who are working to help churches build capacity to care for children and families in crisis. In communities where CarePortal is active, these leaders are ideal candidates for the Ambassador role. They serve as the leading relational connection to churches in the CarePortal network. Ambassadors are supported by people in their organization, a Regional Manager, and the CarePortal Global Ministry Support team.
A person would love this role if God has given them a vision for seeing the church answering the call for caring for the vulnerable and they have a natural ability and tendency to network clergy and community leaders together.
Who is an Ambassador?
Calling | Someone would fit this profile if they are actively networking churches and organizations
together to enhance the care of children and families in the community, or if they are willing to do this
networking with some additional support, vision and training.
Capacity | Ambassadors are typically individuals who see engaging churches in CarePortal as a natural extension of what they are already doing, not a burden. They may be serving as pastors or ministry leaders, working for area non-profits, or are simply passionate advocates who have established credibility with churches.
What do they do?
• Engage churches connected to them, and/or recruit churches to their network by regularly
reaching out to connect in person, via email or phone.
Coach Pastors and Leaders
• Equip the leaders of churches in their network to understand how to engage their congregations,
navigate the child welfare system, and build a culture of caring for the most vulnerable.
• Help churches and community leaders develop a plan to give financially toward their
organization's ministry and participation in CarePortal.
What is the workload commitment?
Workload is determined by the ministry the Ambassador is serving through and how many churches they are expected to recruit/support.
• <10 churches is usually a volunteer
• 10-25 Churches is usually a 10hr a week commitment
• 25-50 Churches is usually a 20hr per week commitment
