WOMEN VOLUNTEERS

Our women volunteers, working in registration and in the background during the conference, allow our men to participate in all aspects of the conference.  We truly cannot do it without you!

Volunteer Sign Up - Women

  • We will use your e-mail address solely for the purpose of communicating with you about volunteering at Rewired.
  • From time to time it may be convenient to communicate via text message. We would only use text message if absolutely necessary. It is not a requirement to volunteer.
  • Please let us know if you cannot help during the specified times. Be detailed about when you can help. We need the most help on Friday mornings but Friday afternoons are also very busy.
  • Let us know which church you attend. This helps us as we communicate with you.
  • Do you know of other women who might volunteer at Rewired? Give us their e-mail and we'll send them an invitation to volunteer.
  • As a volunteer, you must agree to the following Women's Volunteer Guidelines:

    • Be faithful in fulfilling your commitment. If you cannot make the time for which you are scheduled, please contact us as soon as possible.
    • Please dress comfortably, but conservatively. Jeans, T-shirts and tennis shoes are appropriate for most volunteer areas.
    • Avoid course or suggestive language as well as the use of tobacco products and alcohol.
    • Avoid the Tabernacle Services and Breakout Sessions. Be seen by the attendees as little as possible during the Conference. These are times developed expressly for men. Women can be a distraction to what God is doing during these times.
    • Please report any inappropriate behavior or anything that causes you to feel uncomfortable to the Men's Ministry Assistant or Lead Volunteer Coordinator.
    • You must listen to and follow instructions of the Rewired Executive Staff and adhere to the rules and regulations of the Rewired Men's Conference, Falls Creek Baptist Conference Center and the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma.
    • Have a great time! Volunteers are a tremendous blessing and make a difference in the lives of the men who attend Rewired!

FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS

Q: Are women allowed to participate in the Men’s Conference? 

A: Other than their assigned areas, we purposely keep women volunteers separate from the men at the Conference. So, no. Women are not permitted to participate in the sessions or activities with the men.

Because Rewired is a conference designed for Men, the subject matter and activities are focused on issues men face.  To avoid distraction, female presence around the men is kept to a minimum during sessions, breakouts, activities and generally around campus. This allows men to focus on what God is speaking to them.  Simply put, women volunteers are not allowed in Main Sessions, breakouts or at activities unless absolutely necessary.

Q: Do I have to pay for the conference to volunteer?

A: Absolutely not! We cannot do it without you.  We will provide lodging and meals for you during the conference.

Q: What age do you have to be to volunteer?

A: Simple. We prefer volunteers to be at least age 14 if accompanied by a mom or family member.  After that, women age 18 and up may volunteer on their own.  We have women of all ages volunteer.

Q: What do we do as volunteers?

A: Each year we have different needs for volunteer women.  Generally, we need those who can work helping check guys in at registration, greet men as they arrive at registration and hand out flyers, help with setup by checking cabins with our men volunteers before the conference begins, and working in the background at the entry gates while men volunteers attend the main sessions and breakouts. Some of these areas require standing, while others are performed seated.

Q: Where will I stay while volunteering?

A: We rent the dorms in the cabin where we have registration.  It is a 2-story “cabin” with dorm-style bunk beds and bathrooms.  The girls dorm is upstairs above the registration area. This cabin is located near the main entrance to the conference center.

Q:  What do I need to bring with me?

A: Bring bedding (a sleeping bag, sheets & blanket, pillow.. whatever makes you comfortable), toiletries, comfortable shoes, appropriate clothing (see next question), a jacket (it gets chilly that time of year), sunscreen (If you are volunteering outdoors) and anything else you need normally.  No need to bring any food or snacks. We will provide that for you.

Q: Is there a dress code?

A: Yes.  Women volunteers may wear long pants or long skirts (no shorts or short skirts) — crop pants are fine — and shirts with sleeves (no sleeveless).  Any print on apparel must be appropriate.

We want to limit distractions, and what women wear may be a distraction to men at the conference. As long as you stick to these simple guidelines, please, wear something comfortable!

Q: Are there any restrictions or rules for volunteering?

A: Yes.  At the bottom of the sign-up form there is a list of guidelines you are required to follow as a woman volunteer. By submitting the form, you are agreeing to these guidelines.
