For this same reason, we are recruiting a team of volunteers whose contribution will be critical to the success of this project. Just look through the Available Roles section below and consider the potential. Surely if God would be pleased to provide us with such help, our impact and service will multiply greatly!
Who Are We Looking For?
There are three core requirements for members of the Bible Tags Team of Volunteers:
You must possess the basic skill and/or experience for the role you are interested in (see below)
Note: Training will be provided for the particulars of each role.
You must commit to volunteer at least five hours per month for three months
Of course, those able to give more time and/or serve longer are welcome!
Reach out to Bible societies and other organizations about publishing their own Bible Tags powered apps. Brainstorm and pursue creative ways to spread the word.
Great for folks with contagious personalities, who love telling others about worthy Christian initiatives. Must be: (a) a clear communicator, (b) willing to take initiative, and (c) persistent to follow up.
Keep track of the status of all partnering organizations, translators, and team volunteers so as to assist the Project Director in effectively leading the team. (Requires a six-month commitment.)
For someone with the gift of organization and a high level of commitment. Must be: (a) able to recognize important points among many details, (b) create helpful summary reports, and (c) communicate effectively with team members.
Make contributions to the open-source apps in coordination with the Project Director and/or write scripts to convert digital Bible translation formats to USFM.
App Launch Tech
Assist Bible societies and other organizations through the process of publishing their own Bible Tags-powered apps. This includes helping with configuration files, properly formatting graphics, and setting up app submissions in the app stores.
A good option for technically-minded Christians who are not experienced programmers. Must be: (a) able to clearly communicate via email, (b) follow technical instructions, and (c) understand technical concepts related to apps.
Respond to questions from Bible societies and taggers, helping them overcome hurdles, directing them to the appropriate person when relevant, and collecting feedback for app and/or system improvements.
A really important role that is great for folks excited about spreading the vision of Bible Tags, but concerned they do not possess the needed initiative or personality of an Advocate. Likewise, this role is for folks who are organized, but are not able to make the commitment of Team Organizer. Must be: (a) a clear email communicator, and (b) able to be consistent in checking emails.
Help us work with Bible societies to get Bible translations in your language available in Bible Tags-powered apps and/or translate the app’s user interface into your language.
This is the role for you if you are proficient in another language and desire to see the Bible Tags project equipping pastors and other Christians in your language with great Bible study tools. Must be: (a) proficient in English and another language, (b) a clear communicator via email, and (c) consistent and responsive.
