Hairdresser seeking ministry work
« on: Thu Jan 03, 2013 - 15:26:12 »
I'm a hairdresser and I want to use hair as a ministry.  It doesn't cost me anything to do a haircut, just my time.  I'd love to get connections to do free haircuts for those in need.  I'm especially looking to minister to young women and single mom's.  I'm in southern Michigan, and if anyone knows of an area that could use the ministry please let me know.  I'm praying that God will open doors, so I'm excited to see which ones He opens :)

I know what you're asking here and don't mean to intrude.  I hope you don't mind a few comments from me.

My wife is a hairdresser and today she is a licensed instructor in both cosmetology and esthetics at a Paul Mitchell school.  Her job is her ministry.  I can't begin to tell you about how many cards, notes, and letters she has received from students who have thanked her for how she has influenced them in many positive ways.  Her life is a sermon.  Your life can be a sermon right where you are.  That being said, since you are licensed you should be welcome many places like nursing homes, retirement homes, etc.  Local churches often take communion to shut-ins.  Contact churches and ask them if they have shut-ins as members of their congregations and ask if they think these people would benefit from your services.  These people would probably love a visit from you and for you to give them some services would probably make them feel a whole lot better about themselves and their circumstances.
