what is Servolution?

A Servolution is a revolution sparked through serving – it’s a culture of serving others all day every day and infusing that culture into the DNA of your church. When we do this, we change our view of the world and our perspective of the needs of those around us. This movement is rumbling throughout the body of Christ – a revolutionary army of people ready to take up this mandate. We are actively pursuing the lost, the forgotten, and the poor to show them a God who is passionately in love with them. We stand ready with one heart, saying, “I will serve others and show them the hope they can have in Jesus.”

life through simple acts of kindness for the glory of God.

Starting a Servolution

1.

just do it!

Deciding to get out there and do something is the first step. So many times the one thing that is missing is the willingness to just get out there and try. We serve a big God, there is no need to be afraid. Get your church staff and leaders behind the idea of serving your community and start a Servolution.

2.

identify the need

Our world is full of needs. There are countless opportunities and ways for us to reach out to those around us; we simply have to open our eyes. We have to train ourselves to see the world through a new perspective.

3.

get equipped

Get equipped to reach your community by doing your homework! Search this website, download the resources, read Pastor Dino Rizzo’s books Servolution and Serve Your City and do some research in your community to find out what would work best in your area.

4.

get connected

Get connected to a community of people and churches that are working on the same things is vital. If you are a small group or an individual, we encourage you to get connected to a local church in your area. If you are a church, register here to let people know that there is a church involved with Servolution in your community.

“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”

-Galatians 5:13 NIV

why serve?

Jesus did. Our goal as Christians is to become more like Christ every day. As we study God’s Word, we learn about Jesus and the way He lived. Because Jesus loved people, He served them to show them His love for them (John 13). Our goal is the same, to serve people so they would also come to know Jesus as their personal Savior.

The Church and its purpose are best expressed outside its walls

We can’t sit inside and wait for the world to come to us. We’ve got to get out into our communities and show people that we care and that there is a God who wants to heal them.

 Serving is a tangible expression of the love of God for lost humanity. Words can’t always fix our pain. People may know that God loves them, but maybe they haven’t ever experienced God’s love for them in a practical way. We can be a testimony to others of what God can do in their life by serving them!

Serving makes us irresistible to the world.

When people see our genuine love for others, they can’t help but be drawn to it. Many times serving can be a way to start conversation with people and open a door to share God’s love.

A simple act of service can tear down barriers and opens hearts. A kind word goes a long way. You never know what someone may be going through. Handing someone a bottle of water or a hot meal may be just what they need for God to soften their heart and open their mind to hear about the truth.

why serve together?

We can accomplish so much more for the Kingdom when we work together! Our impact is multiplied. There is value in shared ideas. In a group setting, we can draw on each other’s gifts, talents and creativity to polish the original idea, making it even better and more effective in building God’s Kingdom.

As we work together, we are living out God’s Word!

Serving creates momentum and energy to move things forward. There is a great excitement when we all work together to accomplish a common goal. God designed us to be part of the body. Serving together is this is the body at its best- each part doing it’s job and moving forward with passion!

Unity proves that the Gospel works. John 17:18-21 says, “Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world. And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth. I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one-as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.”
