Time is a very precious gift. We don’t know how much time the Lord will give us in our lives, and so we strive to use it in a way that allows us to best know, love, and serve God and those around us. Time is also a valuable resource. Entire industries are built around the fact that many people feel they don’t have enough time to do all the things they want to do. That is why we are so grateful to our many, many listeners who give their time to volunteer for Relevant Radio®.
There are many roles that many volunteers play in serving Relevant Radio, and our Parish Ambassadors play an especially crucial role as part of our apostolate. They represent Relevant Radio at parish and community events, hang banners at their parish, distribute Relevant Radio materials to their fellow parishioners, and generally spread the word about Relevant Radio in their community. Last year, 1,028 Parish Ambassadors gave a combined 15,400 hours of their time in service to Relevant Radio!
The work that volunteers do is priceless, but according to IndependentSector.org, if we were to add up the value of what our Parish Ambassadors gave through their time last year, it would total more than $400,000! As a listener-supported apostolate, the generosity of our volunteers allows us to stretch the financial gifts of our listeners even further, and bring Christ to more people through media.
Not only have our Parish Ambassador’s been a blessing to our apostolate, but based on what they’ve told us, being an Ambassador has blessed their lives too! Here’s what just a few Parish Ambassadors had to say about their experience:
Volunteering as an Ambassador has been such a joyous and fulfilling part of my life and faith journey. The tools and materials that are sent have helped countless people to come to know Our Lord and Our Lady more intimately. – Deb
This is the greatest gift I have – my faith! I could do without the house, the career, the stuff – but, not without my faith. So, I think everybody needs to know about it! – Celie
I get such positive feedback, that it really blows my mind that I, such an average individual, could help so many people deepen their faith by just inviting them to listen. – Peter
