Volunteer at General Assembly!

 
 

Thank you for your interest in volunteering during the 2019 CBF General Assembly in Birmingham, Alabama with other Cooperative Baptists from around the world! Volunteers are an integral part of a successful General Assembly. They are the first faces, reassuring voices and gracious hosts to thousands of attendees.

Each volunteer opportunity has specific time shifts that vary depending on the role and event.

Please note: Certain events require special attention to help attendees find room locations and answer questions.

Please select the role(s) that best suit your interests as well as the time shift(s) that work within your Assembly schedule. You may choose more than one role and time frame. A schedule will be emailed prior to Assembly for your review.

We look forward to working alongside you for another successful Assembly!
