We need your help.  There are many opportunities for you to serve in this ministry.  All we ask is that you have a willing heart and a spirit of obedience, and you can play a crucial role in God’s ministry of Changing Hearts, Transforming Lives and Impacting the World.  Here’s some basic information to help you “get involved.”  To express your interest, use the Express an Interest in Kairos form.

Join a Kairos Team

Kairos volunteers come from all walks and strata of life. They all share a desire to follow Christ’s admonition of Matthew 25:36, “I was in prison and you visited me.”  Kairos Inside and Kairos Torch team members go into the prisons, and Kairos Outside team members attend the Weekend with the Guests.  All team members must be the same gender as the Inmates or Guests.

Pray

All Kairos activities are covered with prayer, and you can be a part of that prayer effort.  We have prayer vigils for every Weekend, with individuals taking turns praying throughout the Weekend.  See Prayer Vigils for the list of currently scheduled Kansas Kairos prayer vigils, with links to their signup pages on 3 Day Weekends Online.  Or contact an Advisory Council to learn about other prayer opportunities.

Attend a Kairos Closing

Experiencing a closing is an experience like no other; all Kairos Weekends have one. The impact of a Weekend on Inmates or Guests is made abundantly clear during the closing ceremony, where Inmates or Guests have the opportunity to tell how God has worked in their hearts and lives. For more information, see Attend a Kairos Closing.

Provide Weekend Support

Each Kairos Retreat Weekend has opportunities for outside support, such as writing letters of support, preparing meals, bringing Kairos Outside Guests to the Weekend location, or running errands.  Get your church’s Sunday school classes to color placemats for mealtime at the Weekend.

Help Financially

All Kairos activities are funded by donations. The Weekends have many expenses, and Kairos pays for everything.  For more information, see How to Donate to Kairos.
