I hope this list of opportunities not only gives you a good idea of the breadth of help NorthFork needs, but also provides the perfect segue for you to make a positive, lasting contribution to the future of our young and emerging leaders! We appreciate you and any help you can offer!
To that end, please take a few minutes to tell us a bit about yourself and how you can best help. We’ll get back with you just as soon as we can. Of course, if you’re anxious to get started, please send an email to our founder, Dr Jack King, at jack[at]servanthearts.com. You can send him a DM on Twitter, too! @DrJackKing
Please include in your email basic contact details such as your name (first, last), address (at least city/state, or country), email, and phone number.
It would help immensely for you to give us an idea of how you can best help. Do you like going to events and/or talking with people? Are you a photographer or videographer? Perhaps you love to produce films! Or, just maybe, you’re an awesome writer! Do you want to start a local Servant Leader community in your city, town, school, organization, or workplace? Are you good at inspiring others to join our quest to nurture servant hearts? Do you have an awesome idea we should discuss? Let us know where your strengths lie (or where you would love to get more involved so you can learn more), and how much time you can commit. There are many ways you can help NorthFork, and most can be accomplished from the comfort of your home!
We’d love to hear from you! If you live in/near central Virginia, we’d love to see you!
