Creating a Service Opportunity (SO)
Becoming a Site Coordinator
Site Coordinators represent ministries by creating and editing Service Opportunities on NazServe. Site Coordinators are individuals associated with Nazarene affiliates like Compassionate Ministry Centers, Churches, Work & Witness, Nazarene Disaster Response, and Nazarene Educational Institutions. The Site Coordinator is responsible for approving Service Opportunities posted on behalf of their organization. (i.e. An executive director, pastor, or volunteer coordinator would probably be the Site Coordinator for a particular entity.)
Site Coordinators can: Post New Opportunities, Edit Existing Opportunities, Invite Participants, and Promote Participants to Team Leaders
To become a Site Coordinator
Your ministry's Executive Director needs to complete a Site Coordinator Permission Form.
Then mail, fax, or scan and email the form to NazServe. (See the contact information below.)
For more detailed information see the Site Coordinator Information Sheet.
Becoming a Service Opportunity Coordinator (SOC)
SOCs are approved by Site Coordinators. SOCs have many of the same capabilities of a Site Coordinator – but only on a single project. While Site Coordinators can view, edit, and manage all the projects for their organization, an SOC manages only the projects designated by the Site Coordinator. An SOC is the person responsible for the details of a specific volunteer opportunity. (i.e. While the administrative pastor of a church might be a Site Coordinator he/she could assign the children’s pastor to be the SOC to set up a kids camp on NazServe.)
SOCs can: Edit Existing Opportunities, Invite Participants, and Promote Participants to Team Leaders
For more detailed information see the SOC Information Sheet.
Volunteering as a Team
Becoming a Team Leader
Site Coordinators and Service Opportunity Coordinators promote participants to Team Leader status. Team Leaders represent a group of volunteers. While the SOC is responsible for the details of a volunteer opportunity, the Team Leader is responsible for inviting and approving volunteers on NazServe and has little to do with the details of a volunteer opportunity. (i.e. The lead volunteer responsible for organizing a group to visit a local soup kitchen would be the Team Leader.)
Team Leaders can: View Opportunities, Make Some Edits, and Invite Volunteers to Become Participants
For more detailed information see the Team Leader Information Sheet.
