We believe God calls all followers to join Him in some way to bring the good news of Jesus to unreached communities. Some, He calls to go. For us at MDE, those are our BAMers and DMEers. Others are called to use their gifts and talents to support those who go. They’re our MDE Volunteers.
What makes MDE special is that we have built our service delivery model around the expertise, experience, talents, and passions of our faithful volunteers. Our staff is small to keep membership affordable. We then recruit, train, and coordinate a large and diverse network of experienced volunteer Christian mentors and business advisors to provide a wide array of personalized services.
These are individuals who have learned and experienced much during their careers and in life. They now have a sacred opportunity to come alongside courageous MDE members to support them with mentorship, business guidance, encouragement, accountability, and prayer. And both members and volunteers are blessed when God brings them together to accomplish His Kingdom work.
Our MDE volunteers serve in one or more of these categories:
- A BAM Team Manager maintains an ongoing relationship with each BAMer, becoming their business coach, encourager and accountability partner. They also serve as the access point for all of the MDE services available to our members.
- A Mentor is also assigned to each member and guides, encourages, and prays for them in the areas focused on their mission, their discipleship efforts, and their own physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
- Volunteers serving on our Faculty of Advisors provide just-in-time technical expertise and advice in a wide variety of business, tax, legal, marketing, and missional areas.
These volunteers may also support the MDE organization directly in ways that benefit all of our members and improve our overall effectiveness.
Each day, we give thanks to God through Jesus for our faithful volunteers who support the Kingdom work of our members. If you’re interested in learning more about serving as a volunteer, let us know!
