A 'Unique' Opportunity: Volunteering at TCT Television Network

TCT Television Network had a vision to offer 24-hour prayer response to viewers' needs. Now 31 years later, TCT maintains a network around the world of over 500 Prayer Partners volunteering their time to pray with callers.

The network created a volunteer opportunity listing on ChristianVolunteering.org to find more volunteers. When Minister Unique Hayes searched the database, she was looking for something that fit her talents and abilities—and clicked the link for “Prayer Partner”.

Unique emailed TCT and applied—becoming a volunteer at the television network’s office. She is one of thousands of people who have found their place in volunteerism through a simple website search and God’s guidance. She says, “God is always looking for a few more good men and women.”

A typical day at the network: During a typical day at TCT, Unique provides intercessory prayer to the callers, takes pledges, specials requests and praise reports. She also encourages, motivates and inspires the callers. “Sometimes I just listen to the callers problems and issues because that provides them with an avenue of relief knowing that someone really cares and someone is concerned for their well being,” says Unique.

“With the economy being in the state that it is in, a lot of TCT viewers that call in for prayer have lost their jobs and are struggling financially. God gave me a word to speak through prayer to the callers:

"Come and eat and drink those who have no money: God will provide you with everything you need and also things you may just want, without having any money. The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof. God told me to tell His people that we have been very liberal in our giving and now it shall be given: all of the praying, sharing and caring that God's people have been doing have been stored up for such a time as this."

For those considering volunteering: “We were all created with a purpose and when a person doesn’t feel satisfied spiritually, mentally, and physically, it’s usually because they are not doing their part,“ says Unique. “We have a purpose. God is always doing His part, it’s time for us to start doing ours. God created some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, some to be volunteers to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.”

Unique hopes to see her brothers and sisters in Christ worldwide find their place to serve. She doesn’t beg others to volunteer—she just asks God to send out workers into His harvest field.
