As such, great work requires great hands, and we'd love for you to join our ranks! Whether you have a love for music, for education, for children, for the homeless, for the needy, for the sick, or for another of the community's problems, we want to help!
Join us; we'll find a place for you!
“Let every man abide in the calling wherein he is called and his work will be as sacred as the work of the ministry. It is not what a man does that determines whether his work is sacred or secular, it is why he does it.”
― A.W. Tozer
