Why CampusSERVE is participating:
Fall 2009, CampusSERVE leadership began to explore how we can serve while not robbing dignity from those whom we love. Have you ever had a friend that never lets you buy them a drink? They serve you constantly and never let you return the favor?
These friendships do not work. They are one-way relationships. These relationships rob the served of an essential human relationship value – exchange.
Relationships grow deeper when the serving and the served exchange in something together. One-way service cannot restore dignity. In order to be effective servants of Jesus Christ, we must creatively pursue avenues of exchange. Help-Portrait is an exchange of dignity/portraits for relationships/conversation/participation.
We need volunteers to be encourages, conversationalists, transporters, promoters, and specific volunteers. The community gives us participation in this event and friendships with us to follow-up on with CampusSERVE and we partner to give them a family/individual portrait and VIP treatment.
