“Many hands make light work.” – John Heywood

Volunteers have been actively involved in the work of the Canadian Bible Society for more than two hundred years and we realize that volunteers are our future!

CBS has volunteers in all levels of the organization and we support and respect our volunteers for who they are and for the various ways they help us share God’s life-giving Word. Here are some areas in the ministry where we need your valuable support:

Bible Store Clerk

Do you connect with people? Would you help a customer find the Bible that suits him? Your knowledge of different translations or versions of the Bible, or your desire to learn, can help someone to satisfy his thirst for the Word of God.

The needs are unique in this type of store. An interview with the store manager of your community will determine how your talents can be used to best effect. CBS currently has three stores across Canada. Locate the Bible Store nearest you.
