Volunteer involvement at UPF

  • For UPF to function efficiently and to carry the growing weight and responsibility of prayer for the nations many helpers and team members will be needed to get office work and regular tasks done.
  • Presently the UPF office only has 2 fulltime staff members and it is impossible for them to get to all the mundane tasks needed on a daily and weekly basis. As there are many talented and gifted individuals in the UPF family we would like to invite individuals to see how they can involve themselves in the organizational activities so that home base is working well and able to serve the many initiatives that will be needed to further prayer into the nations.
  • There is a long list of needs that need to be addressed and UPF would love to have people commit on a regular basis to make themselves available to serve the organization in the knitty-gritty that makes the machinery run smoothly.
