There are a number of ways you can get involved in helping the next generation integrate faith and work and have a role in equipping them to transform the cultures of their marketplaces.

Guests/Teachers 

You don't need to be a teacher to pass on what you've learned. Just come willing to share some of your life lessons as pertains to the topic of the term. (Learn More)

Mentors

Young adults desire mentors. This is a great way to invest in the life of a Young Professional who may be following an occupation you are currently in or have deep experience in. We are looking for mature adults who want to voluntarily invest in the life of individual participants on a monthly basis for the 9month program. This is a life-impacting opportunity. (See Mentors under Program tab)

Collaborative Churches & Organizations

These are ministries or businesses that want to collaborate in the vision of equipping Young Professionals to be change agents or marketplace transformation catalysts. Collaborative churches and ministries might work with the WAM House by hosting preview sessions, having WAM House staff come in to speak to young adults about Marketplace Ministry topics, participate in mentor drives, be a sponsor, scholarship a WAMer, retain the WAM House for training, etc… One way organizations and businesses could get involved is...

Volunteering

There are lots of things to do. Volunteers can help with a wide assortment of tasks ranging from small one-time projects to weekly tasks that may involve 2-4 hours per week. Contact for ways you might be able to help.

Bookkeeping Once per month, during the first week of the month. Enter receipts, reconcile books, print some reports in our Quickbooks program.

Tour Guide Once per year in October. WAMers are required to volunteer serving the poor. To determine where to serve, we visit 4-6 organizations around the city that serve the poor. Coordinate the visit schedule and take them on the tour. Instructions and contact info will be provided.

Typing Project  Type  highlighted text from books and articles for use in our curriculum.

Library Cataloging Project  Catalog our resource library.


Quote Research Project
Find approximately 200 quotes related to some character and leadership principles we will be studying. Our Marketing Intern will then send the quotes through Twitter, Facebook and email on a weekly basis to reinforce what we are learning. Reference materials will be provided to find relevant quotes.

Intercessors These are folks who commit to praying for the WAM House on a weekly basis. We have every day of the week bathed in prayer by those who have committed to praying for us for one year and would like more people praying.

Church Contact A church contact acts as a communications portal and advocate for the WAM House at their home church. They pass along information, advocate on behalf of the WAM House to their church, and do what they can to encourage others to get involved.


Meal Preparation
Prepare supper for the WAM House class once per month. Can do it at the WAM House (ingredients provided) or bring it already prepared. Typically prepare for 6-10 adults. Classes are on Wednesday and supper starts at 6:00 p.m.  

Company Owners & Managers
Non-Paid Internship. One way businesses could get involved is by providing non-paid internship opportunities for qualified participants to work for them. The business would give a job description and expectations, the WAM House would screen and direct applicants to the business that might be a likely fit. 

Business Tour. Tours provide a way for WAMers to interact with Christian business leaders who are integrating some of the things we are learning in the program. We have visited a number of businesses in Columbus and across the state. Ask how your organization can be included on our tours. We would love to visit! 

Contract Services. Organizations can also contract the WAM House’s company training business (ask more about this separate company), to do the leadership development of Young Professionals in their employ, creating a win-win-win scenario: employers benefit from the positive changes their employees experience, Young Professionals grow in competency and character, and the WAM House receives revenue for continuing its ministry to Young Professionals.

Financial Giving

The goal of the WAM House is to eventually be self-supportive. However, as we grow, we need financial help. People have donated labor or supplies, paid for special projects or recruiting events, air-miles that could be converted to cash or gift cards, and of course financial support. The WAM House is a registered 501c3 and is listed with the Columbus Stewardship Foundation to optimize your gift-giving. Call us for ways to give at 614-554-6608. Go to the "Give" tab on this website to give on-line via PayPal or credit card.
