Carrie and Dan Beck serve as the Coordinators for the LCBC York Cleaning Team. One day before our campus launched, I asked Carrie, “What do you enjoy?” She quickly responded, “I love to clean!” Days later, I asked her to lead our Cleaning Team. I knew I had found the right person! Carrie and Dan are a blessing to our volunteers and our campus and we greatly appreciate who they are and all they do!
1. Explain what you do as a volunteer at LCBC.
We are the Cleaning Coordinators for the LCBC York Campus. We have 4 teams that alternate every other Sunday morning starting at 7:00 am and another team that cleans Monday evenings at 6:00 pm. We serve by resourcing our volunteers so we can make this place shine.
2. What was it like to get involved and volunteer?
It was totally fulfilling. We were excited about volunteering, a new campus just opening in York close to our home and a way to give back to God for all that he has done for us.
3. What one concern did you have about serving?
The big concern that I had was why couldn’t I do everything? I wanted to clean, be a greeter, work in the cafe’, and be a program stuffer. But, I knew that was not possible so I picked the one thing that I’m gifted in and that’s cleaning. I can spot a piece of lint on the carpet from 100 feet away. Seriously, getting enough volunteers was my concern. Needless to say, not everyone has a cleaning passion like I do. As for Dan (whom is a bit more shy then me), his concern was meeting new people and not knowing what to say.
4. What’s one cool thing that’s happened because of volunteering at LCBC?
Since we’ve opened the York Campus, we’ve had such a great opportunity to meet and develop real friendships with other volunteers and even staff members. It’s really cool to strike up a conversation with someone you say “Good Morning” to in the bathroom and talking to them about their experience at LCBC. (as I’m wiping down the countertop)
5. What would you say to someone who is thinking about serving at LCBC?
Go for it, you won’t find anything more rewarding then serving at LCBC. If you find out you don’t enjoy cleaning, we’ll continue to talk with you to see what other ways you could serve. God gives all of us many gifts and talents, we just can’t be afraid to use them. There is nothing more fulfilling than serving God in any way we can.
