One of the biggest contributions to the success of the PowerUp Gospel Music Workshop is our Volunteers that help to make things run extra smoothly.
Each year, PowerUp is growing to meet the demands for new Workshops, Clinicians, and special events. Please review the frequently asked questions and list of positions below for more information. Then click the "Volunteers Needed" button to sign up today!
What types of positions are available?
We have volunteer positions in a wide variety of areas (i.e. Merchandise, Security, Hospitality, Workshop Host, and Conference Setup/Tear down, Concert Support)
What if I can't volunteer all three days?
Volunteering for all three days is not required. Select the day and hours you wish to volunteer and we will try to accommodate accordingly.
Can I select which hours I volunteer on each day?
We would love to accommodate everyone’s schedule, however custom schedules are not possible. Signing up as a volunteer, is agreeing to work whichever shifts you are scheduled for during each day of the Conference. We will do our best to make things fair and to distribute shifts evenly.
When do we find out our schedules?
Schedules will be mailed out 2- 3 weeks before the conference. If an email address is provided, you will receive your schedule in this format.
Is there any training for volunteers before the Conference begins?
Yes! There is volunteer orientation for all volunteers at the start of each day of the conference or the day you’re scheduled. All volunteers must arrive on time to attend this meeting. At this meeting the team leader(s) will be introduced and training will be provided.
Who do I contact if I have questions about volunteering that aren't answered here?
Our Volunteer Coordinator does not work out of the PowerUp office to receive phone calls. However, Office Staff can always assist with any questions that cannot be addressed via e-mail.
All volunteers are required to check in at the Registration Desk. Plan to arrive approximately 30 minutes prior to your actual volunteer time for updates. This also allows time for early arrival at your exact shift location.
Volunteers working at the Registration desk are responsible for welcoming delegates, providing them with badges and other materials, and answering questions as required. The direct report is the Registration Coordinator. Volunteers must become very knowledgeable about the event as they will be asked a variety of questions and must be able to communicate special requests to Conference staff. Volunteers will be provided with all relevant information, including maps and an information binder. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of your shift.
