DWM Volunteer Team
Dallas Willard Ministries is looking for volunteers to help us develop more study tools for personal growth, and create resources to bring what we’ve learned from Dallas to new audiences. We invite you to consider joining our volunteer team to invest your time and talents into these efforts.
Please contact Danae Felsch to learn more about how you can help. Job descriptions for four key efforts are included below. If any of these roles are of interest to you and you have the necessary skills, please complete the online volunteer application, and Danae will contact you.
The majority of Danae's background has been in Hotel and Restaurant Management, with her most recent experience being as a human resources specialist in non-profit work that serves the poor of Nashville, TN. She was first introduced to Dallas's teachings through James Bryan Smith's books, and as a result, pursued and graduated with a Masters in Christian Spiritual Formation from Friends University. Originally from Australia, she splits her time between there and Nashville, and is convinced she has the cutest, yet most entitled dog - Theo the Great.
Proofreading is required for everything we post as we seek to honor the careful attention Dallas gave to everything he published. This includes articles, transcripts, handouts, outlines, presentation slides.
YouVersion Plan Developer:
YouVersion is a popular app that contains dozens of versions of the Bible, as well as devotionals used to help spur our relationship with God. The DWM YouVersion Plan Developers are responsible for developing devotional plans based on Dallas Willard’s books. We have published plans for Hearing God Through the Year and Renovation of the Heart, with a goal to make studies available for each of his books.
Creating these plans will involve:
This role supports our social media coordinator in developing graphic content to be used in the DWM social media platforms, and assists with creating banners and graphics for our website.
This role involves developing a 6-8 week small group curriculum using Dallas’ teachings. It will be necessary to define the purpose and desired outcomes of the curriculum, and could include creating tools for easier learning, as well as incorporating video and/or audio clips.
Media Clip Editor:
The purpose of the role is to watch or listen to videos and/or audio files of Dallas teaching and edit them into 1½ to 3-minute high quality audio and video clips to be used for teaching purposes, whether in small groups or sermons. Clips may also be used on social media.
This is an integral part of creating a comprehensive Dallas Willard database. This role involves watching videos and/or listening to audio to make note of specific topics that Dallas discussed. The Cataloguer will use a worksheet (provided by DWM) that streamlines documenting and outlining the videos/audio.
This role involves maintaining the dwillard.org website, including uploading new resources and improving functionality and efficiency where needed.
This role involves communicating with the DWM audience and donors. This includes building and maintaining relationships with donors; as well as monitoring our email account – responding to inquiries, or forwarding to other staff members as needed.
Scripture Index Editor:
This is also an integral part of creating a comprehensive Dallas Willard database. This role involves starting with Genesis 1:1 and moving through the Bible, noting where each verse is mentioned in The Spirit of the Disciplines, The Divine Conspiracy, Renovation of the Heart, Knowing Christ Today and The Allure of Gentleness. All of these books have a Scripture index so this is simply a process of transferring material from the books to one easily referenced database.
