Is participation in church activities considered extracurrs [#permalink]

Hi Hjort,

For as long as my adult life, I have been heavily involved in church activities, including:

- Conducting bible studies
- Singing in a choir
- Church-sponsored community services such as organising orphanage activities and helping out with the poor in the community
- and others

Can I list this as my extracurricullar activities?

I'll chime in without permission. It sure is, just be careful with religion - it's a touchy subject for many.

Yeah definately it is "Extra"-curricular!

Strictly speaking the definition of Extracurricular is "Extracurricular activities are activities performed by students that fall outside the realm of the normal curriculum of school or university education. "

So if you are a part time priest you might be able to distinguish yourself from the rest!

I agree with Rhyme- this certainly counts but religion can be a sensitive topic for some people.

I know, hence my question to you Hjort. The truth of the matter is that I am so involved in my church activities that I simply don't have time for other curricullar activities. I am aware of the sensitivity involved, but I feel that leaving this part of my life out will under-represent who i really am.

So how should I include this in my essays/resumes? Use terms like faith-based community or non-profit organisation?
