There is always something that we can do for you
or you can do for us. Let us create a chain reaction
for God and others...

Chat Operation

Make sure your computer's speakers are turned on, so you can hear the chat interaction.

Part of the purpose for NeedHim’s existence is to help train and develop soul-winners for Christ.  We sometimes call it “witnessing practice” because we have the opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ again and again, with people who are generally receptive and interested.  Therefore, we would like as many of God’s people as possible to be involved with this front-line evangelism effort.  There is no skill set too large or too small to participate.  We do, however, require the following:

Know Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, and be fully convinced that you belong to Him by faith in Him and Him alone.

Be actively involved with your local church.  It is important that you’re growing in your Christian life and fellowshipping with God’s people.

Maintain a consistent prayer life. It becomes clear that each call is a specific work of God through you. Therefore you must be close God's Spirit through prayer before, during, and after each telephone session.

Minimum age of 18.  Since we cannot always control who calls, unfortunately some callers will jump too quickly into “adult content” type of conversations.  We expect all volunteers to be able to redirect or terminate such calls as appropriate, and we must guard our volunteers from needless offense or disruption in their personal lives.

Review all of the training materials.  We want you to be as fully prepared as possible.

After reviewing your Agreement Form, we will give you the log-in nformation and  your slot time.    Remember all phone calls are monitored from time to time.  If you have any more questions,  e-mail anabelleheckathorn@redeemfamily.org
